This recipe was given to me by a co-worker years ago and I have tweaked it along the way. There are so many variations or ways to make these. I'll list a few different ingredients at the end of this recipe.
I usually keep these on hand because I hardly ever have time for a real breakfast, as I am sure most of you can relate. Best of all, my kids will actually eat them :)
2 cups of dry oatmeal
1 cup of mini chocolate chips (optional)
1 cup of peanut butter (or any nut butter of your choice)
1 cup ground flaxseed
2/3 cup of honey
2 TSP of vanilla extract
**A few variations I have tried that are just are delicious: chia seeds, coconut, another flavor of chips, actual flax seeds, any kind of nuts, such as pecans, almond slivers, crushed walnuts** Possibilities are endless!
Mix all ingredients together.
Roll into the size balls you want (it is going to stick to your fingers!)
I usually keep them in the fridge until I am ready to eat them.
Great for on the go snacks, breakfast, and this recipe makes a lot!
Lots of love,
