I have been gone for so long! I wish I could tell you that I was on some amazing adventure but sadly I was busy with school, work, and my extracurricular activities.

It was fun but busy!

If you have been busy as I have I'm sure you'll appreciate today's recipe as its easy, quick, and requires no oven. In my opinion the best thing about these is that you can eat them right away! This is a perfect summer treat to nourish you through day and keep you cool. They are also raw and deliciously healthy so really you have no reason not to make them!

Spiced Raw Chocolate Oat Spheres
30-40 spheres depending on size

3 cups oats
2 cups shredded coconut
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 tsp fresh orange zest
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch salt
1/4 cup agave syrup
1/4 cup warmed coconut oil
1/2 cup water

1. Mix dry ingredients into a bowl
2. Mix agave with coconut oil and water and pour over the dry ingredients
3. Mix well until coated
4. Using your hands, form balls with the raw oat mixture and set onto a tray or plate
5. You can let the balls set in the fridge or eat right away! They taste great if you let them set

I also added some chocolate chips but that's completely optional
