Robust Treat: Chocolate Craisin Oatmeal No-Bakes
This sweet treat is great to share during the holiday season or bring to a party anytime of year. These no-bakes have plenty of fiber from the flax seed, oatmeal and craisins. Also, a bonus omega 3 fatty acid is found in the flax to make them heart healthy!
1 cup oatmeal (old fashion oats)
1/2 cup honey
2/3 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup flax seed (milled or ground)
1-2 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup craisins (soak in water for 5-10 min to bring out additional flavor and make them softer)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (dark, milk, semi-sweet)
1) Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
2) Refrigerate for 20 min to help the mixture hold together better.
3) Roll into balls (you can decide the size; smaller are easier to eat, also the recipe will therefore yield more).
4) Store in air tight container and refrigerate to help keep their shape.
Share and Enjoy!
