If you haven’t tried these delicious oatmeal balls, then you are missing out!! They are healthy, sweet, and give you ENERGY! Cut out the coffee and caffeine, and trade it in for one of these instead. Your body will thank you later!
YOU WILL NEED:
-1 cup of dried oatmeal
-1/2 cup dried coconut flakes
-2 tablespoons of chia seeds
-1/2 cup of dried flaxseed
-1/2 cup of chocolate chips
-1/2 cup of peanut butter
-1/3 cup of honey
Stir everything together in a bowl. Side note: these things are STICKY! You pretty much have to get into with your bare hands. Throw in some extra chocolate chips, and it’ll be worth it.
Roll them into little balls as big or little as you’d like. Whatever tickles your fancy. Before eating, store in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes so they will harden a bit, then enjoy!
You can store in the fridge up to five days, or freeze them! I freeze mine in individual bags so they are easy to grab on the go for breakfast every morning! Quite frankly, they are a pretty nice sweet treat at night while I am relaxing and watching tv!
Trust me, they ARE as delicious as they look! I am looking forward to enjoying them over the 3 hour season finale of the Bachelorette tonight! Who wins?! Are they still together? Can’t wait to find out!
