No Bake Peanut Butter Oat Balls

My sister brought what she called peanut butter oat balls with us snowboarding the other day and they were so yummy I had to make some myself. I really liked the idea of them, being a vegetarian they're a great way to get a punch of protein, sort of like a home made protein bar. She didn't really have a recipe for them more of just a guideline so this is what I came up with.

1 Cup Rolled Oats 
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter 
1/3 Cup Honey
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract 
1/2 Bag Milk Chocolate Chips

Combined all ingredients in a large bowl, mix well. Once mixed roll mixture into small balls, refrigerate  one hour and enjoy.

This is one variation I made. In another batch I made I added coconut and raisins instead of chocolate chips. You can kind of add whatever you want as long as you keep the basics and add to that. Basics being oats, peanut butter, honey and vanilla.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
Happy Friday!!
