Pocahontas' Peanut Butter Trail Mix Balls

What you'll need

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup honey
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chopped nuts of your choice
  • ½ cup dried fruit of your choice

How to make it

  1. Mix together 1 cup peanut butter and 1 cup honey until smooth. Gradually add in 3 cups of old-fashioned oats and ½ cup ground flaxseed. Add 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup any combination of nuts and soft dried fruit (try ½ cup coarsely chopped peanuts and ¼ cup each of raisins and dried cranberries) and mix gently in your stand mixer or smush together by hand.

  2. Roll into Ping-Pong–size balls and, for maximum presentation value, put in paper mini muffin cups. You can eat them right away, but they'll be less sticky after a night in the fridge. They freeze well too, layered on wax paper in an airtight container.
