Preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃).
In a small saucepan, bring the peanut buter and honey to bubble.
Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla extract.
In a large mixing bowl, add oats, coconut flakes, cocoa powder and chocolate chips, mix well.
Pour the peanut butter-honey mixture into the oats mixture.
Stir with a wooden spatula until well combined.
Roll about 1 tablespoon into a ball, place each ball onto a nonstick baking sheet.
Leave about ½-inch apart between two balls.
Bake for about 12 minutes.
Makes about 32 cookie balls.
Remove from the oven, and let cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack until cool enough to handle.
Place the cookie balls onto the wire rak and let cool completely.
The cookie balls can be stored in a air-tight container in the refrigerator for at least 1 week or in the freezer for up to a few months, if they can last that long :)
