National Peanut Month!

It is ironic that I came across the interesting fact of March being National Peanut Month because I have just discovered a new Peanut Butter Ball recipe that is to die for! This recipe is all over Pinterest and if you are a fellow user, you too, have most likely run across it.

What is so awesome about them, is these balls are packed full of protein and are healthy for you! My family fights over them when I make them and a double batch barely lasts 5 days in my home. So if you are crazy about peanut butter, you MUST try these out.

No-Bake Energy Bites
(makes 18-20 bites)

1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/3 cup honey
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

Mix everything above in a medium bowl until thoroughly incorporated. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls and enjoy! Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
