Healthy, cheap, and easy to make. No cooking involved, just some hands on work with a mixing bowl. Watch out! They’re so delicious I recommend you freeze what you won’t be using for the next few days so you don’t overeat them.

- Add all the dry ingredients to a large bowl. Add the nut or seed butter with half the milk and mix by hand. (Use a spoon and you’ll be sorry!)
- The mixture should be like concrete, add the remaining milk once mixed. If the mixture fails to bind together, add 1-2 tablespoons of additional milk at a time.
- Roll mixture in your hands to make 13 bars or balls. To keep the mixture from sticking to your hands, wash them first then wet them with cold water or cover hands with a little olive oil.
- Roll finished balls/bars in ground flax, rolled oats, or shredded coconut. This will prevent a sticky disaster when eating.
Store them in a covered container in the refrigerator, they keep a week. Covered in the freeze around a month.
