Recipe: Peanut Butter Energy Balls

This recipe was received from a local dear friend the other day. At first I thought, this sounds dreadful. Dry oatmeal? But, Hubby was a brave soul and made a batch. Now I'm hooked! Please don't be put off by the sorry photo. It looks like something the dogs left for me on the front lawn, I know, but they really are good, low in sugar and salt, and are a life saver if one has low blood sugar as I do.

Peanut Butter Energy Balls
by Vicki D.

1 cup dry, uncooked oatmeal
1/2 cup flax seed
1/2 cup low sugar peanut butter (I recommend Simply Jiff)
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup raisins (optional) and/or chocolate chips, etc.

Wet hands. Roll into bite size balls. Refrigerate on cookie sheet for at least 30 minutes. Keep refrigerated until eaten.
Makes 12 or more depending on size, amount of ingredients, etc.

Ride Safe,

Real similar to buckeyes chocolate peanut butter balls. We used to add TEAM cereal flakes for a crunch in the mix. YUMMY!
