Quick and Easy No Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bites

I'm always looking for healthier snacks to take to work.  These were so quick and easy to make, and really delicious.  Plus, I found another way to use my Chia seeds and a way to sneak in some flax. I will be making these again, they are the perfect filling snack for work.

Quick and Easy No Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bites
From: How Sweet It Is
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: NONE
Makes: 12-15 balls

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup sliced almonds, chopped
2 Tbsp chia seeds
1/8 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp Honey
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup ground peanuts or ground almonds, to roll the balls in.

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

2.  Melt peanut butter and allow it to cool slightly (I melted mine in the microwave for about 30 - 45 seconds, then stirred).  Then stir in honey and vanilla extract until it's combined.

3. Once peanut butter has cooled a bit, pour 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.

4. Roll dough into golf-ball sized (or slightly smaller) balls, then roll in ground peanuts or ground almonds.  These can be eaten at room temp but we like them stored in the fridge!
