Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a food processor, pulse oats until finely processed and a flour like consistency.
  2. Add California Figs, peanut butter, coconut shreds, and cinnamon. Pulse until batter begins to come together pulling from the sides of the food processor.
  3. Roll dough into 1 tablespoon size bites. Lay bites on a parchment paper lined sheet and cool in the fridge for one hour so the bites can firm up.
  4. After oatmeal energy balls have firmed up, transfer to an airtight container in the refrigerator. Store for up to one week in the refrigerator.
Substitutions:
  • You can sub peanut butter for sunflower seed or almond butter.
  • You can sub old-fashioned oatmeal with quick cook oatmeal. You can’t use steel cut oatmeal.
