1 cup peanut butter (we use no sugar added organic natural creamy pb, but any kind is fine)
1 cup honey (we use local, but any kind will work)
3 cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1 cup chocolate chips (we use mini ones)
1 cup any combination of nuts & soft dried fruit (this time Kyla chose to use 1/2 cup sliced almonds,
1/4 cup raisins, and 1/4 cup golden raisins; we've also used coarsely chopped peanuts, dried
apples, or craisins)
In a large bowl, mix together peanut butter and honey until smooth.
Gradually stir in oats and flaxseed.
Add chocolate chips & fruit/nut combo and stir until combined.
Roll into balls, or use 1/8 measuring cup to press mixture into, tapping the handle for it to easily pop out.
Refrigerate for at least an hour before eating. Store in the refrigerator, stored between sheets of wax paper in an airtight container. May be frozen for longer storage!
Makes approximately 40 powerballs!
