My friend, Sara, submitted an awesome snack recipe for me to share with everyone. I really appreciate her contribution and would love to share more recipes or ideas that any of you have. These Oats and Nut Butter Balls were really simple to make and disappeared quickly.
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (or raisins)
- 1/2 cup nut butter (I used 1/4 cup peanut butter and 1/4 cup almond butter)
- 1/2 cup ground flaxseed (I used 1/4 cup ground flaxseed and 1/4 cup chia seeds)
- 1/3 cup honey (more or less depending on sweetness of nut butters)
- 1 tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients and roll into balls. Refrigerate to set. Perfect for work/school lunches.
Balancing tip-Pause. Before you take the next bite of food, before you say something negative to someone you love, or before you purchase another item, pause. Take a moment, take a breath, be still. You may begin to make some different choices. Let me know what changes for you.
