Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Power Balls
 

Children and grown-ups alike cannot resist these delicious (and healthy, shhh) power balls! I have made them over and over again and always get asked for the recipe. Thank you to my friend Amanda who was so kind to share this with me and my sweet readers!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Power Balls

In a large bowl combine oats, coconut, peanut butter, chocolate chips, milled flax seed, honey, and vanilla.

Stir it up and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour- then shape into balls. Keep refrigerated! YUMMMM!!!!

I love the addition of the milled flax seed...Many of you might be thinking "Oh that's probably expensive - sounds organic". Honestly it's not and it's known to be one of the healthiest things we can add to our food! I purchased 3/4 lb for $1.25 at my local indoor farmer's market {make sure to purchase it already milled or "ground"}. It's a sneaky, yet effective way to add some pretty powerful health benefits into your recipes! Awesome.

You can find this recipe along with many others in Comfy in the Kitchen's latest Best-Selling ebook on Amazon, "Comfy Cooking with Kids". Training your children up in the kitchen is a ministry in itself. For even more teachable moments, encourage your children to not only cook for themselves, but to share what they make with others (it could be neighbors, friends, or a child who is sick). Great job, Parents! Much love to you, Janelle
