Energy Bites

Thank you Gimme Some Oven for this amazing recipe.

Ingredients:

  1. 1 cup old fashioned oats
  2. 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
  3. 1/2 cup peanut butter
  4. 1/2 cup ground flax seed
  5. 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (or vegan chocolate chips)
  6. 1/3 cup honey or agave nectar
  7. 1 Tbs chia seeds (optional)
  8. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.
  2. 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.
  3. Makes about 20-25 balls.

Hint: To speed up the chilling process, spread the mixture out on a baking sheet, then cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
