No bake energy bites


I want to share with you a recipe that I don’t usually prepare. But, I do plan on making this real soon 🙂 My sister will occasionally make these very yummy, filling and incredibly addicting energy bites. These guys will make the perfect snack before and after workouts, games, road trips and just pretty much any time of day munchie. The recipe is super easy to make, made with wholesome ingredients, and they taste like no bake cookies!

No bake energy bites

INGREDIENTS

1 C. (dry) oatmeal
2/3 C. toasted coconut flakes
1/2 C. peanut butter
1/2 C. ground flax seed
1/2 C. semisweet chocolate chips (or vegan chocolate chips)
1/3 C. honey or agave nectar
1 Tbsp. Chia seeds (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

1. Combine all ingredients together in a medium mixing dish until blended well. (Or if you get tired of using a spoon, just use your hands. My sister does!) Next, cover and place in the fridge, let it chill in there for half an hour.* Remove the bowl from the refrigerator.

2. Then form the mixture into balls of any size you would like. Enjoy! Eat as many as you want. I will eat about three lol. Store any remaining leftovers in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week. Makes about twenty to twenty-five.

Note: If you are allergic to peanuts, feel free to replace them with any other varieties of nut butter, like almond butter, sunflower seed butter, cashew butter.
