I recently started a new job and I am out and about in the city everyday. This can pose a problem for eating at traditional times, which can sometimes be rough for me. I have a confession to make, if I don’t eat regularly I turn into a grumpy six year old. If I miss a meal because I’m on the go, I suddenly find myself on the verge of a temper tantrum. It is a serious problem, but after many years, I have found that the solution is always having a snack on hand. This embarrassing fact about me and my new job have inspired me to experiment with delicious solutions to this problem.
For today’s post I made scrumptious peanut butter, coconut, chocolate energy balls. This recipe is super easy and perfect for healthy (ish) snacking!
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
How to (are you ready for how easy this is?)
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate for 45 minutes. This will make the mix easier to mold. Make small bite size balls from the mix. Refrigerate and enjoy!
