1 C oatmeal
1/2 C peanut butter
1/3 C honey
1 C coconut flakes
1/2 C ground flax seed (high in omega-3's for those of you that are like me and are not the biggest fish fan! Also good fiber/protein)
1/2 C mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
Mix everything together until incorporated. Let chill for half an hour and then roll into balls and enjoy!
*I have rolled them before chilling and eaten them that way and both ways taste great; however, I've been known to not have the patience to wait for no-bake cookies either...that chilling part is hard for me!
This will make aprox. 12 balls, I usually double the recipe. You could also substitute raisins or dried cranberries for the chocolate chips to make it even more healthy, but if you did that don't invite me over...I wouldn't eat them. The choc/peanut butter combo is what makes these so appealing to me! :)
OH!! Here is a picture using the art filter on my new camera:
Anyways, I got it the day before my nephews 1st birthday party:
