Spread oats onto baking pan, and toast for 5 to 10 minutes, or until they start to brown.
To a blender, add peanut butter, toasted oats, cranberries, maple syrup, coconut flakes, salt and Chia seeds, and blend until well combined. Mixture will seem dry.
Transfer mixture to a medium-sized bowl.
Scoop heaping Tbsp of mixture and shape into a ball. Place on a baking pan lined with parchment.
Repeat with remaining mixture, to make 20-22 bites.
Refrigerate at least 15 minutes before serving. Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to two weeks, and freezer for two months.
