These are soooo good! They are full of peanutty goodness, and just enough honey, chocolate chips, and coconut to make you think you are eating dessert instead of a healthy snack! If you don’t like coconut- just leave it out and add a little extra oatmeal. They are called ‘Mighty Balls’ because of the incredible amount of nutrition in them- including micronutrients from the microgreens. This will be your go-to after-school snack!
