Pour 1 c oats, ⅔ c peanut butter, ⅓ c honey, 1 tablespoon hemp hearts, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, ½ c dried cherries, ¼ c chocolate chips, ⅓ c chopped/slivered nuts, and ¼ teaspoon salt to the bowl of a high powered blender.
Mix ingredients on dip or nut butter setting. Stir with tamper tool or (stop and stir with) rubber spatula until ingredients are mixed together and to your desired consistency.
Spoon out about 1 tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball, continue until all dough has been rolled into balls.
Refrigerate for up to 5 days.
Use whatever type of nut butter you have on hand.
You just need the oats, nut butter, honey, and salt in this recipe. Swap out or omit additional ingredients to use what you have. You may need to add more oats so it's not too sticky if you don't add additional ingredients.
You may need to take half of the dough out and mix ½ at a time so it all gets chopped and mixed up. Stop and stir as often as needed.
