Protein Snack Balls (Snackie Balls)

I found the original recipe for these protein snack balls on Pinterest. They are a staple in our home now. They are easy, filling and we all love them. WIN!
  • 1 cup dry old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Form into balls the size of a golf ball. Refrigerate. 

You can make any of these variations of the recipe and come up with new ones. Just make the contents are wet enough to maintain form. 
  • Add a tsp of chia seeds
  • Add 1/3 cup flaked coconut
  • Replace some or all of the flax meal with wheat germ
  • Replace up to half of the peanut butter with coconut oil
  • Replace some or all of the honey with maple syrup
  • Replace some or all of the chocolate chips with raisins or nuts
