My sister and I made these, only our recipe didn’t include coconut. I’ve now discovered there are a great many variations- some healthy, some not. We will be making more of these and use a variety of healthy ingredients! YUM!!
1 cup dry oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/3 cup honey
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix everything above in a medium bowl until thoroughly incorporated. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls and enjoy! Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week. They will freeze well, but don’t tell kids or husbands, since doing so will cause them to disappear!
We got this recipe from Food.com, so if you go there you will see more of these and they have tons of recipes and info you will no doubt find interesting, since many ingredients you don’t want in your healthy diet can be very deliciously substituted with those you do.
Another yummy, yet healthy snack you may like…
CHOCOLATE NUT CLUSTERS
1 cup roasted raw almonds, with skins
1 cup roasted raw pistachios
1/2 cup dark chocolate or bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon Kosher or sea salt
Preheat oven to 325°.
Line a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper; evenly spread almonds and pistachios onto sheet. Roast 12 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
In a medium saucepan, combine chocolate and salt; melt over low heat, stir until completely melted, about 3–4 minutes. Add almonds and pistachios to chocolate; toss to cover. Pour chocolate covered nuts onto the same lined cookie sheet; spread flat, but keep nuts next to each other in order to form clusters.
Allow to cool at room temperature; refrigerate 30 minutes if chocolate is still sticky. Break into 1- to 2-inch pieces. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Tip: If the temperature is warm outside, store in the refrigerator.
