My children love theses quick bites. We made some today for our morning snack. Simple, quick, delicious and no cooking!
– 1 cup all natural peanut butter (make sure it is gluten free)
– 1 cup quick cooking gluten free oats
– raisins (shhh. I’m actually not a fan of raisins at all but I know they are good so I try to eat a few here and there)
– 1 tbsp linseed powder (flax meal)
Mix peanut butter, flax meals and raisins together with 1 tbsp oats. Pour remaining oats onto a plate. Spoon a small amount of peanut butter mixture onto the plate of oats and roll them into a ball, pressing to adhere more oats to the ball. Repeat until all the mixture is gone.
