"Energy Bites" (AKA, "guilt-free" treat)

I pinned these from my friend Jessica.  I was looking forward to trying them as soon as I saw that they "might taste like a healthier version of a no-bake cookie."  Sold.  

(The original recipe can be found here.)  I made mine with:
1 cup dry oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed 
(I goofed and didn't grind mine, so my first batch was more crunchy...)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla

Stir everything together and place in the refrigerator to chill for about 30 minutes.  Roll into balls (about 1 inch in diameter).  Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

They are a yummy little treat!  Enjoy!
