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 www.smashedpeasandcarrots.com)
(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 creative...be sure to share too!!
