I saw these on Pinterest and it sounded like a good combination to me! So I gave them a try and they're so easy-to-make, tasty and healthy! I think there are very few food items that can boast of all three qualities!
The original recipe is here - I just omitted the chocolate chips to make it healthier and the good thing is - I don't miss them!
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes - I'd the sweetened coconut flakes and lightly dry roasted them on the stove
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup flax meal
- 1/3 cup honey
Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like. I store them in the refrigerator and it's a great snack to have on hand!
