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!

Ingredients:

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)

Directions:

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.
