Granola Truffles

Only five ingredients in these wholesome little snacks.  They are so easy to make and healthy too!
Just roll up your sleeves and dive into the sticky goodness, you won't be sorry.
I pop a couple in my lunch bag to have on hand when I need an afternoon energy boost at work ~ so yummy!












Granola Truffles

1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup honey or rice syrup
3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1 cup mini chocolate chips

In a large bowl with a wooden spoon, mix peanut butter and honey together until smooth. 
Gradually add rolled oats, flax seed and mini chocolate chips. At this point you may need to mix with your hands.
Roll into balls and place on waxed or parchment paper.  They will be less sticky after a couple hours in the fridge.
Serve in cute little muffin cups or store them in a an air-tight container in the fridge.
Enjoy your healthy snack!
