Chocolate Chip Protein Bites

Today is a good day for chocolate chips in your breakfast. I'll bet you agree!
This simple breakfast is whole grain and protein packed. 

oatmeal, chocolate chips, whole flax seed, peanut butter, honey

What is flax seed?
Flax seed is just what it sounds, a seed. You may buy whole or ground. These seeds are high in omega-3 and are good for your heart, and they decrease inflammation. They also add crunchy bits to this recipe.

Total Time: 10 minutes

1 cup dry oatmeal
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup whole flax seed
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Measure ingredients into a medium/large bowl.
2. Stir.
3. Form into balls. I use 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop.
4. Eat immediately, or save for later. Cover within 6 hours. No need to refrigerate.
