food recipes Aug 17, 2016

 

Are you looking for some healthy snack options for you and your kiddos to help you ditch the granola bars?  Check out these peanut butter power balls, made with just a few real food ingredients.  If you don't want to use peanut butter, feel free to substitute another nut butter (almond or cashew)! It's easy and fun for the kids to help make them too because they are a no-bake recipe.  My 6 year-old and 3 year-old made the batch pictured above.  Enjoy, but be warned...they're addictive!

 In a large bowl, combine:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix all ingredients, roll into balls, put onto plate or baking sheet and freeze for one hour.  That's it!  No baking required!  Enjoy!!
