Place the oats, coconut, sunflower seeds, walnuts, peanuts or almonds, and the mini M&Ms in a large bowl. Add the peanut or almond butter and the maple syrup and mix everything together well. I find it easier to start mixing with a wooden spoon and then use my hands at the end.
Once the dough comes together, form it into 22 balls. You'll need about 2 tablespoons per ball.
Store in your cooler for firmer balls and in your vehicle covered, for softer ones.
