Note: This recipe is very flexible. Don’t like peanut butter? Substitute almond or cashew butter. Don’t have honey? Use agave nectar. Don’t have chia seeds? Omit them. Don’t want to use chocolate? Use small pieces of dried fruit.  Don’t have time to toast your coconut flakes? Use plain. This is a stress-free recipe ­­…enjoy!
