I love this simple sweet treat. Energy bites are perfect for afternoon sweet cravings or a quick bite while your out hiking in the woods. As far as sweet treats are concerned these are pretty healthy.
Makes 20-25 bites
- 1 c. dry oatmeal
- 1 c. toasted coconut flakes
- 1/2 c. chocolate chips *
- 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
- 1/3 c. of honey
* chocolate chips can be substituted with dried fruits, berries, chopped nuts, etc.
The original recipe called for 1/2c ground flaxseed and 1 tsp. of vanilla. I have made it with the additional ingredients, it is yummy with or without.
This recipe is super easy. Simply toast the coconut, then toss all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix. Once you have mixed everything thoroughly refrigerate for 20-25 minutes. After refrigeration, remove and roll into balls. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate. I store mine in the freezer and when I get hungry for a sweet treat I pull one or two out for a quick snack. Enjoy!
