In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the oats, coconut, cocoa powder, flaxseed, chia seeds, salt, almond butter, honey, and vanilla. Mix on low with the beater blade until well combined. Stop and scrape the sides of the bowl if necessary.
Stir in the almonds and chocolate chips.
Roll the mixture into small balls, about 1 to 2 tablespoons per ball. Place in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
If you don't have a stand mixer, you can mix by hand. SIf you want to boost the protein, you can add 1 tablespoon of your favorite chocolate protein powder.
