Dark Chocolate Quinoa Trail Mix Balls

Hi ALL! How is everyone today?

In Pittsburgh…We were totally spoiled in the month of March.  80 degree weather, flip-flops, and windows down.  Well…it’s April now and I had to scrape my car this morning! Not a happy camper.  To make my morning a little brighter, I had a piping hot cup of coffee from my favorite coffee shop AND a Dark Chocolate Quinoa Trail Mix Ball.  Oh such a treat.

After stumbling upon this recipe on my all time favorite food blog Eat,Live, Run, I knew I had to make these. I am always looking for recipes of things that I can grab in the AM while running out the door. I found a winner! I made theses Trail Mix balls on Monday, since then I think I have eaten the entire pan. Oops.  They remind me a lot of no-bake peanut butter cookies but also a little like bird seed (All in a Yummy fashion!). With each bite you get a taste of sweet chocolatey goodness yet healthy bites of seeds, oatmeal, and coconut. Oh bites of dried cherries too! It does not get much better than that! Mmmm….I have had them in the morning for a breakfast treat as well as after dinner for a sweet dessert.  You have got to make these…you will not be disappointed!

Who doesn’t love trail mix balls with Dark Chocolate chips in them?
