No bake energy bites

 

 No Bake Energy Bites
  • 1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats)
  • 1 cup toasted coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
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. Recipe from Give me some oven
I didn't have any flaxseed, used only dark chocolate chips and added craisins to the mixture! I gave some of these to my Boot Camp instructor on Wednesday. She has Lupus and eats a vegan diet. She said they were heavenly and made a double batch for her and her family. Her kids both eat gluten free, so this made for a very happy treat! In her words, "I let them eat a couple for breakfast and it was like I was letting them eat donuts!!"

Mere, I may have just made a quadruple batch! Oops! I tried to make them truly vegan by subbing maple syrup...but they didn't hold. So honey it is! Thanks for introducing these to our family!!!!
