My mom is hands down one of the best cooks on god’s green earth (besides my dad of course), so I know everything she makes will not only be healthy, but delicious. She’s not as tech savvy as she’d like to be (if that was the case, maybe she wouldn’t make the same vegetable muffins every single week) however, she does her best. BUT, once she finds a recipe she likes…. good lord, there is no stopping her.
It’s like having a new favorite song, and playing it 1k times until you’re sick of it…. just me? ok – moving on…..
She makes these “Peanut-butter-chocolate-chip-energy-bites” that are literally to die for. SO, I’m sure you’re all itching to be dying for them too… so here’s her famous recipe:
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter or almond butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/3 cup flaxseed meal
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips (my mom recently just used our chocolate easter bunny.. so anything goes for this…)
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- In a large bowl, mix together peanut butter and honey until combined. Add in flaxseed meal, oats, chocolate chips and chia seeds. Mix, mix, mix, mix. After all of that mixing, you should be able to form balls. (If they’re not perfectly sticking together, add more peanut butter)
- Form little gum-ball size balls, put in the freezer to harden & ENJOY.
Whether you’re hungry for a little snack (or not hungry at all) these will satisfy your snack-craving in a healthy way.Hopefully this can be your new favorite recipe, just like my momma. THX TRISH, YOU ROCK MY WORLD.
Be fun, be hopeful, be determined (to eat healthy snacks) be snacky & full of health, but most importantly; beYOU
