Peanut Butter Health Bites

I'm making these and taking some to mom.  We both love peanut butter and are trying to increase having it in our daily diet because of the health benefits.  These have other healthy ingredients in it but they taste wonderful. I was able to purchase everything a Fareways except the local honey.  I picked that up at The Trading Post.

3/4 cup chucky peanut butter 
1/3 cup local honey
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup certified organic rolled oats
½ cup of coconut
2 tsp. of  flax seed (you can substitute sesame seeds)
½ cup mini dairy free chocolate chips (I can now get in the health food section of Fareways)

Combine peanut butter, honey and vanilla; add remaining ingredients. Add more peanut butter if needed to get a good consistency. Refrigerate for 30 min. then roll into bite sized balls. Keep refrigerated. You can be stored them in freezer also.

Variation -  Saylor and I make a similar peanut butter ball and we add a little cocoa powder to it and roll it in powdered sugar.  You can make so many variations of this.  Add raisins, craisins or some chopped nuts (use creamy peanut butter if adding nuts) to make it even more nutritious.

Enjoy your day, be happy and may God bless you and yours.
