No Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bites

I recently made these tasty bites.  They are really good to keep in the refrigerator for when you need a quick healthy snack.  I found the recipe on the blog How Sweet It Is  which is one of the ones I follow and is linked to mine on the right of the screen.  She has more pictures showing how they are made if you want to check it out.


1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup sliced almonds chopped or slivered almonds chopped
2 T.  chia seeds
1/8 tsp cinnamon
a pinch of salt
1/4 cup + 2 T. creamy peanut butter, melted and slightly cooled
1/4 cup + 1 T. honey
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
2 T. mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup ground almonds, to roll the balls in

Combine oats, almonds, flaxseed, chia seeds, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl and stir.

Melt peanut butter and allow it to cool slightly (I melted mine in the microwave for about 30 seconds, then stirred), then stir in honey and vanilla until combined. Once penut butter has cooled a bit, pour it over the oat mixture and mix well with a spoon then bring together with your hands. Once mixture is sticking together, fold in chocolate chips.

Roll into one inch balls or I used a medium cookie scoop then roll in ground almonds or ground peanuts work too.

Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
