Came across this recipe, tried it , made a couple changes and love it!! Enjoy!
1 cup old fashioned or quick-cooking oats, dry
1/4 cup quinoa, dry + 3/4 cup water
1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/3 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
1/3 cup hemp hearts
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips or cocao nibs
1/3 cup dried cherries, raisins or cranberries
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp peanut or almond butter
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
Combine the quinoa and water in a small saucepot and bring to a boil. Reduce
heat and simmer for about 12 minutes, until quinoa has absorbed all the liquid.
Fluff and scoop quinoa into a large mixing bowl.
Add sunflower seeds, oats, dried cherries and coconut to quinoa and mix well.
Bring honey to a simmer on the stove then stir in the vanilla extract and pour
on top of nuts and seeds. Mix until well combined.
Let mixture cool before adding the chocolate chips, peanut butter and sea
salt. Mix well with your hands so the peanut butter is evenly dispersed but be
careful not to melt the chocolate chips!
Using wet hands, gently roll mixture into golf ball-sized balls. Place balls
on a plate and chill for at least two hours until firm.
