Chia Seeds

On Pinterest I saw these delicious looking energy balls (Originally posted on Pinterest by Smashed Peas and Carrots blog) and I thought... I can make those with my own twist!

Yes, even snack foods get to be served in Sophie.

So here is my twist; because someone (you know who you are... B!) doesn't like coconut I had to replace it with something.  And something healthy too, why not try Chia Seeds!  Healthy and a great source of omega 3s, maybe even better than coconut.

Here is my version of the recipe.
1 1/2 cup oats
3/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla

Mix all dry ingredients together, heat peanut butter, honey and vanilla until it is almost runny.
Combine wet onto dry and mix well.  Form into 1" balls and chill.

They are a tasty little snack that gives us a bit of energy to get through the last part of the work day.
Tomorrow I will be trying this at 2pm!
