Peanut Butter Trail Mix Balls – Gluten Free, Diary Free

PeanutButterTrailMixBallsWe are always on the look out for quick, portable snacks.  We recently tried these Peanut Butter Trail Mix Balls from a book called Dishing It Up Disney Style:  A Cookbook for Those with Type 1 Diabetes, and we loved these.  Best of all, they were easy enough to make that the kids could help.  My son even rolled them all out.

Peanut Butter Trail Mix Balls – Gluten Free, Dairy Free

Ingredients

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup honey (they were a tad sweet, so next time we will probably reduce this amount)
3 cups old-fashioned oats (use gluten free)
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1 cup raisins (the original recipe called for chocolate chips, but we used raisins instead)
1/2 cup chopped nuts of your choice
1/2 cup dried fruit of your choice (we just added additional raisins)

Directions

Mix together peanut butter and honey until smooth.

Gradually add in the old-fashioned oats and the ground flaxseed.  Add the chocolate chips, nuts, and dried fruit and mix gently in your stand mixer or smush together by hand.

Roll into ping pong size balls.

You can eat them right away, but they’ll be less sticky after a night in the fridge.  They freeze well too.  (We froze ours and have one for a lunchbox or after dinner treat.)

Enjoy!
