No-Bake Energy Bites

Submitted by: NANI031


Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    Honey, 1/3cup (remove)
    Oats, 1 cup (remove)
    **Flax Seed Meal (ground flax), 1/4 c (remove)
    Coconut, toasted, 1 c(remove)
    Peanut Butter, smooth style, 1/2 cup (remove)
    Vanilla Extract, 1 tsp (remove)

Tips

Feel free to substitute in your favorite nut butter (almond butter, sunflower seed butter, etc.) for the peanut butter. And you could also add in some wheat germ in place of some or all of the flaxseed. I would caution, though, against substituting agave nectar for the honey, as the honeyfs thickness helps hold things together.
Some other fun substitutions for the chocolate chips (or an addition to them) could include:
• chopped dried fruit (apricots, dates, raisins, etc.)
• dried berries (cranberries, cherries, etc.)
• chopped almonds, pecans, walnuts, or sunflower seeds
• other chips (butterscotch, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, M&Ms, etc.)
• other grains (different kinds of oatmeal, rice cereal, etc.)

If you feel like your energy bites are too dry, add in extra honey or peanut butter. Itfs also not required that you refrigerate these, but I find it helps them stick together much better. And for some reason, I love things like this a little bit chilled. Enjoy!!


Directions

Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like. (Mine were about 1 in diameter.) Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.


Serving Size: Makes about 20-25 balls.

Number of Servings: 1
