No Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Balls

  • 3 cups old fashion or quick oats
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 1/4 cups crunchy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup honey (use local honey if possible)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix everything together
  2. Form into 1″ balls and place on a baking sheet.
  3. Put them in the refrigerator for 15 minutes and voila…they’re done!
  4. These can then be put into zip lock bags or containers to store in the refrigerator (or freezer for longer term storage). Enjoy!
