Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy! #Sweepstakes One Day Only March 10th!


I look forward to waking up to start my day off with the new flavors of Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy cereals, Cinnamon Crunch and Chocolatey Almond Crunch. The Cinnamon Crunch is my favorite. Our whole family really loves Honey Bunches of Oats but to add the energy part helps a whole lot. The Morning Energy blend has 6g of protein and 5g of fiber which all work together to help you wake up and get on with your day and keep going. 

Did you know you can use the Morning Energy cereals to make great tasting treats! Check out this recipe:


Morning Energy Mocha Balls:
Prep Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 1 hour, 15 mins

Ingredients:
1-1/4 cups Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy Chocolatey Almond Crunch cereal
1/2 cup walnut havles
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon flax seeds
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
4 Tablespoons almond butter
2 Tablespoons honey 
2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 Tablespoons dried cranberries
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons espresso powder
1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/4 cup toasted unsweetened coconut for rolling (optional)

Directions:
Place the cereal in a food processor (or smash with a rolling pin). Process until finely ground. Add walnut halves, chia seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds, almond butter, honey, maple syrup, cranberries, vanilla, espresso powder, and sea salt into a bowl and process until well blended and mixture forms a stiff dough. Remove dough and form into a compact ball with your hands. Form dough into 1-inch balls and rolling toasted coconut, if desired. Place balls on wax-paper lined sheet and let stand for a hour or so, then transfer to a tin or container with a tight lid. The power balls will keep for at least a week at room temp, or they can be chilled. This recipe will make around 20 balls.
