These little guys are so stinkin' tasty! They have a great amount of protein and energy to have a successful run. 

Eat 2 or 3 before a run (about 20 minutes) and then head out!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup peanut butter (I use the natural smuckers)
1 cup dry oatmeal (I got the quick kind rolled oats)
1/3 cup dry coconut flakes (I get organic ones on amazon for pretty cheap)
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa (you can omit this if you want peanut butter only)
1/4 cup honey (I buy raw, local honey - you can use whatever)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract (you can use imitation if you like the taste - I personally do not)

Directions: 

1. Mix all of the ingredients together (I use my hands) until they are mixed well and form as a giant gob.
2. Put in fridge for 1 hour (you don't have to do this) if the balls form.
3. Pull out mixture and form into 1 inch balls (should have about 20 - 25 balls).
4. Either put in fridge to eat or leave on the counter covered and eat when you like!

These are super easy and fast to make and they really are great tasting.
