Granola Balls

Adapted from Smashed Peas and Carrots

Makes 12-18 1-inch balls(a little sketch on the numbers here; I made a bunch of this stuff last week and it's all smearing together for me)

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cost: $1.90

oatmeal: .10, peanut butter: .50, honey: .70, coconut: .60

1 C oatmeal (choose a type that hasn't been processed with gluten-y foods if you're going gluten-free)

1/2 C peanut butter

1/4 C honey

1 C coconut flakes (I used unsweetened; if using sweetened you may want to cut back the honey by a Tablespoon or two)

1/2 C ground flaxseed (optional; I skipped because we didn't have and threw in some more coconut)

1/2 C chocolate chips (optional)

1 tsp vanilla

Mix everything until fully incorporated. You can let this chill for easier ball-rolling, but I just go for it and roll them into balls. 

These keep very well refrigerated or frozen.
