Who doesn’t love these little bites of heaven, eh? They can be a convenient grab and go, healthy snack for anyone on the run. And did I mention, SUPER easy to make?? The best thing about making them is that you can change up the ingredients in the recipe if you don’t like them. I’m always telling clients that recipes are meant to be changed as they are just a guideline. So try anything!
This recipe comes from my Chiro co-worker @drkbfit, with a few changes
1 cup Oatmeal, dry
½ cup Honey
¾ cup Peanut Butter, natural
½ cup chocolate chips, semisweet

- Just pour all the ingredients in a bowl (as shown) and mix with either a spoon or with your hands
- Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet and refrigerate for about 30 minutes
- Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for about 1 week
