With our fast pace lifestyles, it’s only becoming more apparent the importance of meal planning and organization. I love a good easy to prepare snack! I made these this week and found them convenient for snacking or an easy breakfast option when time is limited.

  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 6 Tbsp dark chocolate chips (I LOVE the Enjoy Life Mini Chips)

*All of these ingredients can be found at most grocery stores, I purchased them in the Natural Foods Aisle at my local Superstore.


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine butter of choice (ex. Almond or peanut butter), maple syrup and vanilla extract.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and stir until evenly coated.
  3. Transfer mixture to refrigerator or freezer and chill until mixture has firmed up a bit, about 30 minutes.
  4. Remove from refrigerator and shape into 1-inch balls.
  5. Store in refrigerator in an airtight container for up to one week (if they last that long ;) )
