Prep Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
- 2 cups quick cooking oats (*see note below)
- 1 cup ground flaxseed
- 1 cup crispy rice cereal (like Rice Krispies)
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter (*see note)
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips
- 2/3 cup honey (or agave nectar)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 Tablespoons coconut oil (optional, if needed)
Combine all the ingredients together in a large bowl until well combined.
Using a cookie scoop and your hands, drop rounded tablespoonful-sized portions onto a parchment lined cooking sheet. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
Storing: Refrigerate in an air-tight container for up to a week or freeze for several months.
*You could use whole grain oats, but pulse them in a food processor a few times first. If not you may need to add a little extra peanut butter or honey to the mixture to help them stick together.
*One of my kids is allergic to peanuts, so I substitute sunflower butter in his!
