Leftover Easter Candy Oat Balls.

Welcome to an Easter Bunny bedazzled snacktime!

It’s bedazzled with leftover Easter candy and it’s great.  And it comes served on this dreamy watercolor platter from Fishs Eddy.

The only problem with these oat balls is that the chia seeds get stuck in your teeth.  So you can totally leave the chia seeds out in the chance that you have a meeting after snack time and would prefer to not have chia seeds stuck in your teeth.

In other news…

We watched The Office last night.  So much laughing.  Between watching 13 Reasons Why and reading the book Lion my media has been intense.  It’s nice to be watching something light and funny again.  Here’s to watching The Office every night this week.

Now.  Instead of making these oat balls, you could always just eat the Easter candy as is.  You don’t need to pair it with oats and flax.  Candy by itself can be a snack.  And so can oat balls.  So there’s that.  


Leftover Easter Candy Oat Balls.

Yield: makes like a dozen balls

Total Time: 10 minutes


1 1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup ground flax seed
2 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
couple tbsp milk, if batter seems dry
1/2 cup-ish chopped leftover Easter candy


In a bowl, combine all ingredients, except Easter candy, until a batter forms.  Probably most effective to use your hands to mix everything together.  Fold in Easter candy.  Roll into balls.  Eat! Or chill in the fridge and then eat.  They'll keep for about a week in the fridge!

  1. We have everything except for the leftover candy, sooo I’ll be buying some just to make these. ✌🏻 All the candy will be on sale too, so this’ll be perfect!

  2. Love this idea! We have so.much.easter.candy.

    I don’t have flax seed, though — could I leave it out? Replace it with something? Thanks!

  3. Oooh great idea to use up all the candy!

  4. These look delicious and adorable ! I prefer to watch lighthearted and funny shows / movies all the time, there’s enough stress and scary/sad/upsetting things that I don’t want to put fake ones into my brain! And by that I mean… it gives me nightmares! haha 

  5. The Office is where it’s at 🙌🏻👍🏻 Also could you use chia seeds instead of flax seeds?

  6. If you’re looking for a light hearted show on Netflix, I highly recommend Parks and Recreation!

  7. this is AWESOME!!! yummy. I can’t wait to try this! Pinned! so healthy!!
