Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bites

Looking for a sweet treat for you or the kiddos but want to limit the sugar overload that this season brings?!? Try this no bake, super easy, healthy and tasty recipe! The addition of flaxseeds offer a great source of fiber, which keeps you full longer and omega-3, which is important to the anti-inflammatory system in the body.
Even Santa can appreciate Oatmeal Bites. Don't forget the carrot for Rudolph and the reindeers.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bites
1 cup oatmeal

1/2 cup sunflower seed butter (or other nut butter)

1/3 cup honey

1 cup coconut flakes

1/2 cup ground flaxseed

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

1 tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl until thoroughly incorporated. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.
