Peanut Butter Oatmeal Energy Balls


I made these amazing little snacks while Little Man took a nap this afternoon. If you can have enough self control not to eat them all in one sitting, they make wonderful mid afternoon pick-me-ups. I packed a few for work tomorrow. Perhaps it will help me resist a second cup of coffee.


1 1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup sunflower, chia, or flax seeds
1/4 cup dark chocolate pieces (I used Ghirardelli 80%)
3/4 cup All Natural peanut butter
2 1/2 Tbsp honey

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl

Add peanut butter and honey

Mix well

Roll into 1 inch balls and set 1/2 inch apart on plate

Let set in the refrigerator for 1 hr

Place in plastic bag or air tight container

Store in refrigerator

Yield one dozen





You could also use raisins instead of chocolate. They’re delicious, but remember not to eat more than a few per setting. The honey will wake you up. The protein from the peanut butter, and the oatmeal will sustain you.

Eating good can taste good. Enjoy!
