One of our favorite snacks right now are these energy bites. We first tasted them at our gym where the kids and I eat lunch periodically. Everyone was talking about them, so we tried them. And Yummy!
After we had them several times I went online to see if I could find a recipe for them, and I found plenty! But none of them tasted as good as the ones we ate at the gym. So I asked the ladies in the deli for their recipe and they were more than happy to share it with me. In fact they even wrote it down for me on a scrap piece of paper that I have taped to the inside of my cabinet right next to my dressing recipes for quick reference.
1 Cup oats
1/2 Cup peanut butter (I use natural peanut butter)
1/2 Cup ground flaxseed
1/2 Cup chocolate chips (I use the mini ones if I have them)
1/3 Cup honey
1 Tablespoon chia seed
2/3 Cup toasted coconut
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
Drop all of the ingredients into a bowl and stir. Then roll a spoonful size amount into balls and refrigerate.
