Okay, so these aren't the prettiest looking snack, but wait til you taste them! Oats, peanut butter, coconut, chocolate and honey - what's not to like? These no-bake energy bites make a great snack or a quick breakfast on the go! We found this recipe and were so pleased to find that we had all the ingredients on hand. This recipe is a lot like other no-bake cookies, but uses healthier ingredients. You can change the ingredients to suit your tastes. Just keep the proportions the same. Try dried fruit instead of chocolate chips.
1 cup of old fashioned oats
1 cup of toasted shredded coconut
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter - we used sunflower butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla
Measure all the ingredients into a medium bowl and mix.
Line a plate or a cookie sheet with wax paper. Roll dough into balls. We made ours about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. You might find it easier if you spray a little cooking spray on your hands.
Place in the refrigerator to chill. Then store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week - although we highly doubt they will still be there after a week! The recipe made about 30 bites. It was hard to count, many disappeared as mom rolled them out!
