Homemade Energy Bites #foodies #healthy #snacks




Homemade Energy Bites

2 cups oatmeal
1 cup peanut butter or other nut butter
2/3 cup honey
2 cup coconut flakes, wheat germ, sesame seeds, or a mixture of all three (can also substitute oatmeal or protein powder, if you prefer)
1 cup ground flaxseed
1 cup mini chocolate chips
2 teaspoons vanilla
Mix all ingredients together. Roll into balls.
To freeze: Place balls on a cookie sheet and freeze for one to two hours. Remove from cookie sheet and place in an airtight ziptop freezer bag (or other airtight container).
To serve:Remove desired number of balls and thaw at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes. Can also warm for 30 seconds or so in the microwave. Or, you can be impatient like me and eat them straight from the freezer. :)
Makes around 3 dozen energy bites.
Original recipe from Smashed Peas and Carrots
These little bites are the bomb, thank you to MoneySavingMom.com for posting this recipe again, I needed another one. I love to freeze these and use them for breakfast or snacks during the week. It gives my kids something sweet that has something actually filled with goodness for them.
