Energy Balls

I am constantly running around from one place to the next, one meeting to the next, one grocery store to the next, etc. I get the hungers in between those stops without time to properly take care of that. I love quick things I can reach for that will hold me over until I take the time to slow down. I found a recipe online for quick and easy "energy" balls.

1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup toasted coconut flakes
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

Mix it all up together and then let it chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes. 
Roll up some balls! 
I think you're supposed to get about 20 balls, but I think I got less because I was eating as I rolled. 

YUM. These things are really good!! 
Also, I love love LOVE when I can make something from stuff I already have in my home. 

Store them in an airtight container for a week- doubt they'll last that long.
