Oh my goodness!  My sweet sister in law told me about these, and I found the recipe online and made them yesterday.  They are almost gone already and I made a double batch!!  Everyone in my family LOVES these.  Wesley took them as the main dish for his lunch today, and as soon as he got home, asked for more!  These are about as healthy as you can get and still taste amazing.  I'm going to make up a triple batch this time and put some in the freezer.

No Bake Energy Balls
1 cup oats
½-3/4 cup peanut butter ( I used all natural with no sugar)
⅓ cup honey
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (you can substitute any dry ingredients for this, wheat bran or germ, oat bran)
½ cup ground flaxseed
1 tsp vanilla (i used my homemade)
½ cup mini chocolate chips (I chopped up a bar of 85% dark chocolate from Aldi)
1/4 cup nut/seed add in's...I used chopped almonds and pecans

In a medium sized bowl mix together all of the ingredients until well combined. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Roll into small balls (I used my Pampered Chef small scoop for better portion control). Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week (yeah, like they are going to last that long!!!).

  1. These sound amazing! I'm doing the Daniel fast for 3 weeks and am dying for something chewy! (instead of fruits/veggies) If I omit the honey and use unsweetened choc. I think these might just work :) Thanks!
