Recipe: Trail Mix Balls

This tasty snack turned out to be a big hit in our home, even with our picky eater so I had to share:
Trail Mix Balls

1/3 cup honey
2 T. water
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 ts. vanilla
3/4 cup rice crispies
3/4 cup rolled oats, toasted
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips-optional
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup coconut
1 T. sesame seeds

First, toast the oats by adding them to a dry skillet on medium-high heat just until golden.  Stir frequently.  Next, add your dry ingredients in a bowl (cereal, oats, chips, seeds and coconut) and mix.  In a small saucepan, mix honey and water on low heat just until it liquifies, then remove and add peanut butter and vanilla.  Whisk until smooth.  Pour the honey mixture over the dry mixture and stir to coat.  Cover and chill 2 hours.  Roll the mixture into balls using damp hands and return to the fridge until ready to eat.

These are so tasty and packed full of great ingredients.
