Chocolate Peanut Butter Snack Bites

I discovered a version of these on Pinterest last week and they are delightful! It's like eating a nutritious little candy-granola-nugget...haha. I even had a few for breakfast the other day. Plus, my kids like them, too. Yay!

 Chocolate Peanut Butter Snack Bites
1 c. oats
1/2 c. flaxseed (whole or ground will work)
1/4 c. cocoa
1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/4 c. agave or honey (either one works great)
1 t. vanilla

In a blender, combine oats, flaxseed, and cocoa.
 Blend until combined. (It will look like a coarse flour.)
 In a microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, peanut butter, agave or honey, and vanilla.
 Microwave for about 30 seconds and stir until smooth. (If it's not quite melted, keep microwaving in 15 second intervals until melty.)
 Pour both mixtures onto a mixing bowl.
 Mix until it forms a stiff dough.
 Roll into balls and refrigerate until firm.

These are such an awesome snack. Enjoy!
