I just made this recipe a few weeks ago for our staff at MedSave and they were a big hit! These are a perfect snack if you are craving something sweet or looking for a quick snack to give you a boost of energy! Enjoy!
- 1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats)
- 1 cup toasted coconut flakes
- 1/2 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. (*I melted my chocolate and peanut butter together in the microwave so the balls would stick better.) Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like. (Mine were about 1″ in diameter.) Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
Makes about 20-25 balls.
