Energy Bites

This is one of those recipes that I made years ago and then promptly forgot about it....until I was at my daughter's house babysitting and my grandchildren were finishing off the bowl of them she had just made.

They are a small bite of sweet and crunchy and they are good for you.

Once you buy the ingredients for them, you can make several batches, and you will want to!

It is a very easy recipe.....no chopping or mincing....just measuring and putting it all in a bowl.


There is the little detail of rolling the "dough" into little balls (it makes about 60 depending on the size) and then you're done.



This little bite is full of protein, grains, seeds and sweetness.


Enjoy!

Energy Bites

1 cup oatmeal
2/3 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix all and refrigerate for a half hour. Roll into balls about 1" in diameter.
Store in the refrigerator.
