Energy Balls

An excellent snack or addition to a dessert tray
I can't believe there are only 3 DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS! 
Well, It's been a while since my last post, but with exams behind me and the holidays much closer than expected, there are many recipes that I'll be posting in the next few days.
I'll be making a few recipes today, and I'm starting with some Energy Balls. These delicious little balls are nutritious with flax and oats, but are sweetened with honey and chocolate. They make great snacks (kids love them!), but can be served for breaky or even for dessert on a sweets tray. 


No Bake Energy Balls

Ingredients

1 cup oats (quick oats or old-fashioned, large flakes)
2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup chocolate chips 
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract 

I used the bottoms and tops of cereal  boxes
and wrapped in christmas paper for an easy
christmas gifts. Just wrap the balls in wax
paper, tie with a bow, box and
give the gift of yummy goodness.

Preparation

Mix all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and let chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Once chilled, roll into balls of desired diameter.
