peanut butter chocolate chips balls

Ready for another yummy and healthy treat? Need some extra protein in your diet? Then these are just for you!

1 c. ground oatmeal (just process in your food processor)
.75 c. natural peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
.25 c. agave nectar
.33 c. shredded unsweetened coconut
.5 c. mini chocolate chips (These do have sugar in them, so you don't have to use them. You could substitute raisins. I use Enjoy Life's dairy-nut-soy free chocolate chips found at Whole Foods.)

Process the oatmeal first. Next, add the peanut butter, agave nectar and coconut.  Process. Add the chocolate chips last and process just until blended. Form 1-inch balls and place on a cookie sheet. Freeze for at least and hour and then transfer into a ziploc bag and store in your freezer. You can eat these right out of the freezer. Yum! Calorie count is 75 calories per ball. Enjoy!
