DO IT YOURSELF
In a medium bowl, stir together the oats, cocoa powder, 1/3 cup coconut, ground flaxseed, cranberries, chia seeds, chocolate and salt.
In another small bowl, melt the peanut butter, honey and coconut oil in the microwave in 10 second increments, stirring after each increment until completely melted and combined.
Next, stir in vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir well until fully combined.
In a small shallow bowl, stir together the almond flakes and 1/4 cup coconut. Using wet hands, roll the oat mixture into balls [my balls were about 1-inch in diameter] and then roll them around in the bowl of coconut and almonds for the outer coating. Place in the refrigerator to set.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
