  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup sunflower butter
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 3-4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • butter to coat hands
  • 1/2 cup chocolate covered sunflower seeds optional, but recommended


  • Combine oats, sunflower butter, mini chocolate chips, and maple syrup in large bowl. Mix well to combine.
  • Coat palms of hands liberally with butter. Grab a small handful of the mixture and squeeze and shape into a ball. Repeat until finished.
  • Optional: roll finished ball in candy/chocolate covered sunflower seeds. I had a very hard time getting them to stick, so another option would be to incorporate them into the mixture.
  • Store at room temperature in an air tight container.
