Starting with the base of oats and dates, the rest of the flavors can be customized to fit your mood. Pictured are Carrot Cake (carrot, cinnamon, walnuts) Salted Dark Chocolate (chocolate chips, sea salt, almond butter) and Coco-Mango (shredded coconut, dried mango, flax seeds).

2 Tbsp Peanut or Almond Butter
2 Tbsp Almonds, walnuts or pecans
2 Tbsp Hemp or flax seeds
2 Tbsp Chocolate Chips

¼ cup shredded carrot or apple
Pinch of salt, cinnamon, nutmeg or other spices
1. In a food processor or blender, mix the oats and dates until ground to a fine, crumbly mixture.
2. Add your desired mix-ins and a little water if necessary to help the bites bind when you roll them.
