"So what's the recipe?!" says everyone partaking of PBPB goodness. 

Feast your eyes on this SIMPLE RECIPE...

 

RECIPE:

2 CUPS Organic Quick Oats

1/2 CUP Ground Flaxseed

1 CUP Organic Creamy Peanut Butter

2/3 CUP Honey

2 TSP Vanilla Extract

1/2 BAG Guittard Extra Dark Chocolate Baking Chips

Optional: 1/2 CUP Coconut Flakes

 

Makes ~40 protein balls

 

DIRECTIONS: 

Mix dry ingredients in large bowl: Oats, Flaxmeal, Choc. Chips, & Coconut Flakes (optional)

Mix wet ingredients in smaller bowl: PB, Honey, Vanilla Extract

Combine wet & dry ingredients, make into balls on a cookie sheet, refrigerate for up to an hour, & package in cute bags for gifting... OR in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. They are NO BAKE! SO EASY! For me, I LOVE them frozen & helps savor them a little longer. Another option you can do is cook them in a toaster oven on 350 for just a few minutes & you have a delicious cookie! 

NOTE: Because I was making this for so many of my clients, I doubled the recipe. I usually always double recipes like this so I can freeze it for prolonged enjoyment. Either way, it makes a decent amount!
