Yummers!! You’ve got to try THESE bites! (there’s a link there under that word, check it out!)
After the crispy treat with non melting marshmallow fiasco the other week I was a little reluctant to have the lads “help” me again. Not so much because of them, but my patience is in bad shape! SO it’s good for me to work it out this way. Anyhow, they helped me with these energy bites and they did a good job, and my patience was mostly fine. 😉
I pinned this recipe some time back, but this was the first time I tried it. They are so so so so so good! You simply have to do it! It’s no bake even! Can’t get much simpler than that, right?? 😉
I didn’t have coconut, sadly, so I added a cup of chopped pecans instead. I’m a nut lover so that works for me. I also left out the choco-chips since I’m trying to be sweets conscious. I used Old Fashioned Oats, Almond butter, honey, chopped pecans, flax seed and the vanilla. They’re awesome!! Think I might skip lunch and just eat these ‘snacks’ all day, ha ha! Oh my! 😉
Here’s the recipe if you don’t feel like clicking the link. (makes 20 or so bites, I might need to double this the next time I make it. The lads LOVE them, just waiting to see Stu’s reaction)
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 and enjoy! Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
Try it… you’ll like it!
You’re welcome! 😉
