Recipe from: http://www.gimmesomeoven.com/no-bake-energy-bites/
- 1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats)
- 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup groundflaxseed or wheat germ
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
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.
Makes about 20-25 balls.
NOTE: I tried these this weekend and enjoyed them quite a bit. They were better than I anticipated but I should’ve packed them better; I ended up having crumbles. We decided to change the name a little (for fun)
