Energy Balls!

I know many were asking for the recipe so here it is. I took another recipe that I had found and tweaked it a little bit but I have added the original at the bottom of the recipe.
Lifestyle Mix Oatmeal Energy Balls
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup sliced almonds or peanuts, chopped
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 package Thrive Lifestyle Mix (Vanilla or chocolate)
a pinch of salt
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter, melted and slightly cooled
1/3 cup Honey
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup ground peanuts or ground almonds, to roll the balls in
Combine oats, almonds/peanuts, flaxseed, chia seeds, salt, vanilla or chocolate lifestyle mix and cinnamon in a large bowl and stir.
Melt peanut butter and allow it to cool slightly (I melted mine in the microwave for about 30 seconds, then stirred), then stir in honey and vanilla extract until it's combined. Once peanut butter has cooled a bit, pour it over the oat mixture and mix well with a spoon then bring together with your hands. Once mixture is sticking together, fold in chocolate chips.
Roll dough into golf-ball sized (or slightly smaller) balls, then roll in ground peanuts or ground almonds. These can be eaten at room temp but we really like them stored in the fridge!
