Still trying to find a healthy lunchbox treat to add to your little one’s lunches? This is the perfect recipe! Not only are they easy to make but are packed with fiber and protein, they also have added nutrients from chia seeds. It also helps that they taste great too!! So add one of these to the lunchbox and sneak one for yourself too!!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Balls
1 1/2 cups oats
2 Tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 c honey
1. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, chia seeds, and almonds.
2. In a small bowl, combine the chocolate chips, honey and peanut butter. Microwave on low, stirring after each 10 second interval, until melted and mix well to combine.
3. Add the melted mixture to the oat mixture and mix well. Form into balls and refrigerate until chilled. (I had to sort of squish them in my fist to get the mixture to stick together.)
4. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
