Yummy Energy Bites!

These are so yummy and so quick to make!  I found the link to Gimme Some Oven (cute!) on Pinterest.
You can customize them in so many ways -- add dried fruit, different butters, different chips, etc.  I mostly followed the recipe except I used unsweetened coconut and dark choc chips.  YUM!

  • 1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats)
  • 1 cup toasted coconut flakes (I used 3/4 unsweetened coconut)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used dark choc chips)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed.  Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.  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.
Makes about 20-25 balls.
