I make these and keep them in the fridge for my husband and I to use in place of an energy bar. When I am hungry right before I plan to work out to an exercise dvd or go for a long walk, I eat one of these. They are very, very good.
Peanut Butter Bites
1 cup oats, old fashioned or quick *
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup ground or milled flaxseed
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Form into bite-sized balls and store in the refrigerator.
Optional Ingredients: flaked coconut, nuts, chia seeds, pumpkins seeds, chocolate chips.
* I used Bob's Red Mill 5 grain Rolled Hot Cereal. It contains whole grain wheat, rye, barley, oats, triticale and flaxseed. I was out of steel cut oats, otherwise I would have used them. I also added 1 tablespoon of chia seeds.
