Adapted from: Food Doodles blog

1/2 c. nut butter, such as almond butter, peanut butter, sunflower seed butter or any other nut or seed butter.  1/3 c. honey
1 c. rolled oats
1/3 c. shredded coconut
1/3 c. wheat germ
2 T. flax seeds
1-2 t. vanilla
pinch of sea salt if using a natural nut butter with no added salt
1-2 t. your favorite spices or spice combinations(optional)
1/2 c. other add-ins (any kind of whole or roughly chopped nuts or seeds, dried fruit, chocolate chips, etc)

In a large bowl add the nut butter, honey, and vanilla.  If your ingredients are room temperature you should be able to stir to combine.  If this is difficult you can warm in the microwave for a few seconds.  Once this is combined add the remaining ingredients.

Chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.  Then scoop out some dough and roll into a ball.  Place the balls in an airtight container and store in the fridge.  Also freeze well.
