I have been searching for good, healthy, homemade snacks that we can have at home or while on the go, and found these little no-bake energy bites. They are the perfect snack - portable, easy to make, and short in ingredients. They are sort of like chewy granola bars, in ball form.
Our family devoured the first batch, and I quickly had to make more. Substitutions could easily be made - use different nut butters, add in some chopped nuts, whatever you want. In any case, I recommend skipping the expensive, store-bought energy bars, and enjoying these yummy munchies instead!
No-Bake Energy Bites (from Smashed Peas and Carrots)
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/3 cup honey
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
Mix everything above in a medium bowl until thoroughly incorporated. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks. Makes 18-20 bites.
