Sugar-Free Super Yummy Peanut Butter Balls

As I'm sure some of you know, my son cannot process refined sugars of any kind.  He also cannot seem to handle maple syrup, or any type of artificial sweeteners.  Also, he is for sure extremely sensitive to dyes.
So that leaves us with raw honey as our main "sweetener".  (We also use bananas and apple sauce, dates, and whatever other fruits we can find that are very ripe, but in baking the honey works best in place of sugar.)

This recipe is one of my favorites because of how easy it is, and it's the kids' favorite because of how good it tastes.    

No bake sugar-free peanut butter balls:

1/2 cup quick oats (you can use instant oatmeal)
1/2 cup peanut butter (you could use whatever nut butter you like)
2 tbsp flax (you don't need this, just increase the oatmeal by a tbsp. if you don't use it)
2 tbsp. raw honey (soften)

Mix it all up in a bowl until it's all consistent.  Roll into small balls.  Refrigerate.

The end.

*These are our tweaked version of a chocolate chip pb ball recipe I found online.
:)  Enjoy!!!
