Peanut Butter Energy Bites

DSC05520A friend of a friend brought these peanut butter balls to an playdate and they were such a hit. Everyone was asking for the recipe. I just made them myself and they truly are outstanding. My kids have already taken down a couple balls each.

1 Cup Uncooked Oatmeal
2/3 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Ground Flax seed (I used a coffee grinder)
1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
1/3 Cup Honey
1 TSP Vanilla Extract

(1) Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Cover and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.DSC05513(2) Once chilled, roll the mix into tablespoon sized balls. If the balls begin to fall apart and stick to your hands just dip your hands into some water before rolling each ball. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
