These yummy bites are all the rage with moms and kids alike. They are so easy, offer a nutritious punch, and taste like cookie dough!! We always double the recipe when we make them. A sports team can devour a double batch in seconds. Great for a nourishing snack between double headers!
1c old-fashioned oats
1c rice krispies
2/3c coconut flakes
1/2c peanut butter
1/2c ground flaxseed or wheat germ
1/4c chia seeds
1/2c chocolate chips (or any kind)
1/3c honey
1t vanilla

Stir together all ingredients. Chill in refrigerator for minimum of 1-2hrs. Roll into balls about 1in in diameter. Store in fridge. Makes 15-20 balls.

Substitutions abound for this recipe. As long as you keep the ratio of dry to wet the same, you can change it however you wish. For the oats you can use any grain. For the peanut butter, any nut butter will do. Can also add chopped nuts, dried fruit, cocoa powder, or sunflower seeds. Agave nectar does not work in place of honey because of its thinner consistency. Can also add protein powder or brewers yeast.
