These are the perfect bite sized snack for those forever hungry toddlers. Those growth spurts can cause their tiny tummies to be as hungry as a 16 year old boy! Help satisfy your child’s hungry with these healthy, easy and fun snacks.

little helpers no bake


  • 1 cup dry oats (we used Bakery On Main’s Rolled Oats)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Mix all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl
    1. Children love to dump in the ingredients. Make a game of counting the ingredients. If they are older work on spelling them outloud and if younger work on colors and textures (smooth, sticky, grainy…)
  2. Once mixed well place into the fridge for at 30-45 minutes and let cool/set.
  3. Take out of fridge and roll into small balls
    1. Kids can help with this task. Rolling takes some skill, so don’t let them become discouraged with how theirs may turn out. If you have a melon-baller spoon this may help with shaping them if their developing fine motor skills are getting them frustrated.
  4. Store in a sealed container in the fridge.


Makes approximately 2 dozen depending on how large you make them.
