If you're a big fan of oatmeal and looking for a nibble to beat the afternoon slump, this is a great option for you.
Recipe courtesy of National Honey Board
- 1/3 Cup honey
- 1 1/2 Cup rolled oats
- 1/2 Cup sliced almonds
- 2 Tablespoons chia seeds
- 1/4 Cup 72% dark chocolate roughly chopped
- 1/2 Cup dried cranberries roughly chopped
- 2/3 Cups natural peanut butter
- 3/4 Teaspoons vanilla extract
In a large mixing bowl, add oats, almonds, chia seeds, chocolate and cranberries into the bowl. Stir all ingredients together until combined. Add honey, peanut butter and vanilla extract to a medium bowl and mix all ingredients together until combined. Add peanut butter mixture to oats mix and stir until combined. Be sure dry ingredients are coated.
Place mixture into the refrigerator for about 10 minutes, as this will allow it to harden and make it easier to work with.
Shape mix into one-inch rounded balls and place on a platter or cookie sheet. Serve immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container up to five days. You can also freeze and take out as needed.
