    These delicious little no bake energy bites are the perfect healthy snack!

    INGREDIENTS:

    • 1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats)
    • 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
    • 1/2 cup peanut butter or (SunButter if allergic to peanut butter)
    • 1/2 cup ground flax seed
    • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (or vegan chocolate chips)
    • 1/3 cup honey or agave nectar
    • 1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
    • 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.

    *Prep time listed does not include time for the mixture to chill.  To speed up the chilling, I recommend spreading the mixture out on a baking sheet, then covering it with plastic wrap and refrigerating.
