SO healthy, SO easy and SO yummy! These little guys pack a lot of protein and nutrition, minus any processed sugars or questionable ingredients.   Perfect for breakfast, an afternoon snack or a treat after dinner. Kids love them as much as adults!  Gluten-free and dairy-free.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup gluten-free old fashioned oats

  • ½ cup freshly ground flaxseed

  • 1/3 cup honey

  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • ½ - 2/3 cup dark mini chocolate chips 

Preparation:

  • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and let mixture set in the refrigerator for at least 30 min.

  • Roll mixture into about 1 inch sized balls and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 6 months.

  • Enjoy!!
