Ultimate Power Balls


½ cup Puffed Millet
1 cup Puffed Rice
½ cup diced dried plums
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
¼ cup sesame seeds
1/3 cup sunflower seed butter at room temperature (see photo below)
½ cup honey
¾ cup shredded unsweetened coconut



1.     In a large bowl, toss together the puffed millet and puffed rice. Add the dried plums, chocolate chips, and sesame seeds.

2.     Stir in the sunflower butter and the honey. You should have a nice sticky mess! Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

3.     Place the coconut in a small bowl. Using a tablespoon, scoop the mixture and form it into 1-inch balls with your hands. Roll the balls in the coconut and transfer to a container. You can store the power balls in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, or in the freezer in a zip-top freezer bag for up to 1 month.
