Healthy Energy Boosting No Bakes 
 No added sugar or sweetener!
3/4 c nut butter (unsweetened)
1/2 c coconut oil
1 T vanilla
2 c quick oats
1/3 c carob powder
1/4 c ground flax
1/4 t pink salt
Melt nut butter and coconut oil in a sauce pan over low heat. Once melted, remove from heat and add remaining ingredients. Form into small balls, refrigerate for an hour, and enjoy!
Notes: I originally created this to be a 5 ingredient recipe, leaving out flax and salt. Flax helps make up for the lack of stickiness provided by sweetener to help the dough form a little easier, but be warned, they will be messy! Once refrigerated, however, the coconut oil and nut butter hardens and holds everything together.
As far as nut butter, you can use any. I personally enjoy a blend of 1/4 c almond butter, 1/4 peanut butter, and 1/4 c sunflower seed butter.
