Snack On The Go: Oat Balls

I’m so passionate about having balance in life – balance between your career, relationship, friendships, health and personal time. Even though I feel my absolute best when I’m taking care of my health and fitness, that area of my life can be one of the first to suffer when my schedule gets crazy, hopping on planes every week and working long days on set. My good friend Kristin Cavallari wrote an amazing book on this very subject, called Balancing in Heels – it’s all about learning to balance these important areas of your life, and she has some great tips in there for staying healthy when you’re on the go.

One of my favorite new snacks is a recipe from her book – healthy oat balls. They’re just perfect for making a big batch ahead of time and keeping on hand in the fridge for a quick snack, (and if you’re a mum, the kids will love them). Or if you’re like me and are often traveling for work, they’re great for taking on the plane so that you have some better options beyond the processed plane food. Read below for the super simple, no-bake recipe!


1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup almond butter
2/3 cup coconut flakes
2 tablespoons real maple syrup
1/2 cup chia seeds
2 tablespoons cacao nibs
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1/8 teaspoon fine-grain sea salt


In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients together with your hands, to make sure that everything is evenly distributed. Cover and chill for 30 minutes, then roll into balls. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. This recipe makes about 16 balls. That’s it!
