Since starting the 21 day fix in March 2015, I have been trying to be healthier for not only me, but my family. I don’t want my kids to feel that they can no longer have “treats” since Mommy is doing the 21 day fix! Or maybe you are someone who has said that “once I reach my goal, I can have x, y, z again!” Well, it is my goal to make healthy “treats” for my family! Oatmeal power balls are one of our favorites!
21 Day Fix Oatmeal Power Balls, serves approximately 16 (2 balls per serving)
2 cups of oatmeal (I use old fashioned oats)
1 cup of raw honey
1/2 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup of natural peanut butter
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Mix well in a mixing bowl. (I use my kitchen-aid.) After it is mixed well form into balls using a Tablespoon. Drop onto a parchment paper lined pan. Makes approximately 32 balls. Place in the refrigerator to harden slightly. Store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
