Snack Idea: Wonderballs

These are a family favorite here in our house. We make them at least twice a month. The beautiful thing about Wonderballs is that they are fun to make with kids, healthy and they taste like glorified cookie dough!


Here is what you need:
One Cup Peanut Butter
One Cup Honey
1/2 Cup Milled Flax Seed (Fiber!!!)
1/4 Cup chopped nuts (This is optional, but we like to add them. We use Almonds)
1/2 Cup of dried fruit (Our favorite is raisins and cranberries)
1/2 Cup of chocolate chips (we like using dark)
2 Cups of Uncooked Oatmeal

1. Now, in a big bowl add your peanut butter and honey together. Stir!!!!


2. Add in your 2 Cups of Oatmeal and stir!!!
3. Add in your Flax Seed too!



4. Add in your chocolate, chopped nuts, and dried fruit. Stir!!!


Now, you will have a big sticky blob of goodness. Using a spoon or your hands go ahead and make cookie dough balls out of them. Next, put them into tupperware. I stack them and use wax paper in between. Place them in your freezer. As they freeze they will lose most of their sticky-ness. We like to keep them in our freezer and pull them out one by one as snacks. You can also refrigerate them for a softer wonderball.

Enjoy!
