I have three athletic middle schoolers who eat like a hoarde of ravenous locusts. I followed a reviewer's suggestion, doubled the batch, processed it in my food processor, and then spread it in an 8x8" silicone baking "pan" and refrigerated it, slicing it after an hour or so (because ain't nobody got time to roll a bunch of dough balls). I immediately put the bars into snack bags (or else, they'd be picked to nothing in the pan by the aforementioned locusts) and back into the freezer until the locusts are allowed to transfer them directly from the freezer to their lunch bag. They're delicious, they're easy, and thanks to Aldi ingredients, they're inexpensive.
Made these today and they are delicious! Only thing I changed was how I prepared them, I made these changes based on a few other reviews that had great tips! Here's how I made mine:
Used a food processor or blender to grind up the oatmeal and chocolate chips in to a powder. Pour this mixture in to a bowl, stir in the flax until well mixed. Then add in your pb (I used creamy)and vanilla. Heat the honey for about 10sec so that it is thinner, then add to the bowl. Stir until well combined. Put in to fridge for 10-30mins, use a 1/2 tbsp measuring spoon to dish out the dough (can be rounded scoops or exact, doesn't matter). This made me about 30, 1inch bites. Put in the freezer to enjoy later!
I was super impressed with this recipe!! My husband's #1 hobby is body building... I am always in search of a good recipe that fits into his eating plan. These are perfect! I have made them several times with different nuts and fruits even pumpkin is good. Serve them COLD it makes all the difference!
I followed the recipe exactly and it made 11 medium size balls (not too big or too small). Use natural PB so the wet and dry stick together better. You can also heat the wet (honey & PB) up before mixing (balls will be darker, but same taste).
Made these few weeks ago, keep in fridge for when I need-yes need;) easy, yummy & health conscious. I added some dark chocolate nut butter, as well peanut butter, added some cinnamon, & didn't have enough vanilla so augmented with almond. They were tiny bit sweet for me so I'll use less honey next time. I look forward to making these again, perhaps trying almond butter or using pb chips-lots of possibilities!
Easy to make and oh so good!!! I didn't have crunchy peanut butter and used creamy and it was great! My kids (me too) really enjoyed eating this energy balls.The key is the mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. They give it that extra chocolately crunch and it is a perfect compliment with the peanut butter. Can't wait to make these balls again!
