Energy Blast

Birthday treats are usually a time to go all out and be sweet right?? Well YES!! But with Emmah being on a med that can easily make her eat too much, and her participating in GOTR (Girls on the Run) and soccer I thought maybe a healthy, but fun treat might be necessary.

Of course where did I turn?? Oh come on you should know this by now...PINTEREST!!!! I found these delicious no bake energy bites and thought they would be PERFECT!

No-Bake Energy Bites  (from
(makes 18-20 bites)

1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/3 cup honey
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

Mix everything above in a medium bowl until thoroughly incorporated. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls and enjoy! Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.

Now you can gladly double up on any of the ingredients or substitute something you like better. I added extra oatmeal instead of coconut, and also used crushed almonds for the flaxseed. You can also use wheat germ as well. Have some fun and be sure to share too!!
