1 cup oats (use gluten-free oats if desired)
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/3 cup raw honey
1/4 cup chia seeds
2 Tbsp. protein powder (We used milk & egg protein powder; use vanilla protein powder or whey protein powder if desired)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Mix all ingredients together until evenly distributed in the dough.   Roll the dough into 24 half-inch balls.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
