Hi Everyone,

This is a super simple recipe that I found on pinterest. You can check out the original recipe here: Riches To Rags by Dori Of course I modified it a bit (I haven’t met a recipe yet that I haven’t altered), but it’s delicious and quick. I have made these three times, and each time I have done it a little bit differently based on what I have in my kitchen at the time. 

Jesse has been obsessed with these, and they are a great energy snack pre or post run. I made them today to share with my yoga class, and I thought it would be nice to share on my blog as well. 

There will be a new workout later this evening. So be sure to check back. In the mean time enjoy!


Ingredients (makes 20 balls):
  • 1 Cup Dry Old Fashioned Oatmeal
  • 1 Cup Dried Cranberries or other dried fruit
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips ( I actually used about 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips, a tablespoon of sesame seeds, and the rest trail mix for this batch)
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
I combined all of the dry ingredients, then added the peanut butter and stirred. Add the honey, continue stirring. Add the vanilla and stir until all of the ingredients are coated. 

Chill for 20-30 Minutes, roll into balls, and serve or store in an air tight container. 

I actually rolled the balls before chilling them, but that was much more difficult (and messy). Enjoy! These make a really delicious snack!

    These are wonderful. Been eating them before and after my workouts. What a healthy way to incorporate sweets and energy into your diet. Thanks for all your posts and recipes. I have been following you for a month now and am inspired by all you do.

    I made these and although they didn’t come out looking exactly like Melissa’s, mine lacked the round ball shape, they were delicious. They’ve become an absolute hit with the family, thanks for the great recipe!

    These are totally awsome!!! My husband’s co-worker (construction workers) love them. My husband and I went to a shooting range one time we still had a lot left and share them with the employees and they said “For now on that if we didn’t bring those that we couldn’t shoot.”
