Whilst at Podium Boy's recent swim meet, one of the parents introduced me to a home concoction which everyone simply gobbled up, especially the swimmers. When I first looked at them, they sort of reminded me of what my dogs leave in the backyard. So, I was very hesitant to try them at first. I mean, have a look.
|We call them "River Stones" after our whippet River|
We are naming them "River Stones", after our one-year old whipper River Song. Who it seems, has a secret hoard of these somewhere, judging by her energy levels.

It is a very simple recipe. Experiment with other flavors such as cinnamon.
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
½ cup ground flax
½ cup mini chocolate chips
½ cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 TBS chia seeds, optional
1 tsp cinnamon, optional
Mix the wet ingredients together with a spatula. Stir in dry ingredients and chill for at least an hour. Roll into balls and store in the fridge.
Try it out and let me know how it went.
