Ingredients

  • cups old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds optional
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
  • 1 ripe banana mashed

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, chocolate chips, and chia seeds. Set aside.
  • In a small, microwaveable bowl, add the peanut butter and honey. Microwave for 15-20 seconds, or until peanut butter melts slightly, so that it is easier to stir. Remove from microwave and add in vanilla extract and mashed banana. Stir thoroughly until mixture is smooth.
  • Pour peanut butter mixture over oat mixture and stir to combine, ensuring all of the oats are covered. If the mixture seems too wet, add 1 tablespoon (or more) of oats, until it comes together.
  • Place bowl into refrigerator and chill for 15-20 minutes, so that mixture holds together and is easier to shape into balls. Form mixture into small balls. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
