I love having healthy treats around when a sweet craving hits or if I need an on-the-go healthy snack. The bonus with these little treats is that my family loves them too! These are also great to pack along while you travel for a quick pick me up instead of heading to the vending machine or for a fast-food fix!
- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 3 Tablespoons ground flax seed
- 1 Tablespoon Chia seeds
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup vanilla protein (I like Shakeology)
- 3/4 cups natural creamy peanut butter (pro tip: heat the peanut butter up in the microwave to make it easier mix in.)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup m & ms
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Add all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. Once all of the ingredients are mixed well, use a small scoop to roll one-inch balls.
These balls will keep about one week in the refrigerator, or you can freeze them in the freezer up to three months.
Pro tip: I like to double the batch and then put half in the fridge and half in the freezer.
