Delicious and Nutritious Breakfast Bites

The other day, I was having a serious chocolate craving, but not just any chocolate, nutritious, healthy chocolate.  So as I was digging thru my various recipes, lightbulbs starting going off and here’s what I came up with…..



I call them Breakfast Bites (yes they resemble meatballs) because I quickly thought they would be fantastic for those crazy busy mornings when you’re running out the door, and they are sooooo delicious and good for you too!  The recipe is so easy and so customizable, you can put just about anything in them!  The ones pictured are what I made and here are the ingredients I used.

2 cups dry oatmeal

1 1/2 cups peanut butter

3/4 cup ground flax seeds

3/4 cup raw honey

1/2 cup ground almonds

3/4 cup raisins

1/4 cup cocoa powder

2 tbsp. cinnamon

1 tbsp. vanilla extract

mix all ingredients in a large bowl well, refrigerate for about an hour, then roll into bite size balls. Viola, yummy, scrumptious, nutritious, alternative to a candy bar!  ** keep stored in the refrigerator.**

Other ingredients that would go well would be coconut, any other dried fruit, any other nut or seeds, instead of cocoa, you could use chocolate chips or butterscotch, the possibilities are endless.
