Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy

I have been trying to cute back on my caffeine intake recently, and was SO excited when I heard about new Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy! This is exactly what I need to wake up and get my morning started with 2 hyper little boys!  
The Morning Energy blend has 6g of protein and 5g of fiber which make for a great morning combination, and it tastes great! The Chocolatey Almond Crunch was definitely my favorite, but the Cinnamon Crunch was a very close second.

Check out this recipe if you want to try your Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Crunch in a new way! I am going to make some of these and keep them in my purse when we head out for our daily walk to keep me energized!

Morning Energy Mocha Balls:
Prep Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 1 hour, 15 mins

1-1/4 cups Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy Chocolatey Almond Crunch cereal
1/2 cup walnut havles
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon flax seeds
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
4 Tablespoons almond butter
2 Tablespoons honey 
2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 Tablespoons dried cranberries
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons espresso powder
1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/4 cup toasted unsweetened coconut for rolling (optional)

Place the cereal in a food processor (or smash with a rolling pin). Process until finely ground. Add walnut halves, chia seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds, almond butter, honey, maple syrup, cranberries, vanilla, espresso powder, and sea salt into a bowl and process until well blended and mixture forms a stiff dough. Remove dough and form into a compact ball with your hands. Form dough into 1-inch balls and rolling toasted coconut, if desired. Place balls on wax-paper lined sheet and let stand for a hour or so, then transfer to a tin or container with a tight lid. The power balls will keep for at least a week at room temp, or they can be chilled. This recipe will make around 20 balls.
