These don't have chocolate, but they have flax, oat bran, rolled oats etc. My 3 yo helps me make these and can easily take a few out of the fridge when he's hungry.
- 3⁄4 cup quick-cooking oatmeal or 3⁄4 cup rolled oats
- 3⁄4 cup oat bran
- 1 1⁄2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup ground flax seeds
- 1 cup honey
- 1 1⁄2 cups dry milk
- 1 1⁄2 cups peanut butter
- In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients. You may have to mix by hand. I've found it helps to mix with your hands much like kneading dough. It's a little dry, so you may have to add a tiny bit of milk or oil to keep it together.
- Roll into 1-inch balls and store in airtight container in the fridge. You may roll them in wheat germ or powdered sugar if you like.
I have made these three times now and I really really like them. The first time I made them I followed the recipe and I found them really dry. Still good, but definitely dry. I've modified the ingredients only slightly and I love the way they turn out now. I only use 1 cup of flour and I increase the peanut butter to two cups. I also found the addition of a little cinnamon and vanilla delightful.
This is a much healthier version of what my mom used to make me as a kid. I love 'em!
These were GREAT! I've been looking for healthy snack recipes for my kids and they really loved these, and so did I!
