Oat Balls

I have found various versions of this on pinterest but I needed to share it here because I love it so much.  These are perfect for when I need a really quick snack before I head to work out or just something to tide myself over until dinner.

 

Ingredients

1 cup old fashioned oats

2/3 cup coconut

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup flax seed

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

1/3 cup honey

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions

1. This one is easy, combine all ingredients, and mix.

2.  Using hands, roll into one inch balls.  I usually get 15 out of it, but I have to admit the closer I get to the end they start growing in size 🙂

  2. Alex! I just made these. They are amazing and curb your hunger just enough to get you through a workout. They are definitely going to become a staple in my house.

    P.s. I love your blog. I’ve been reading it to motivate me! Can’t wait to see you in Atlanta for the half-marathon!
