No-Bake Energy Bites

No Bake Energy Bites

As soon as I get home from work, I’m always rummaging through my pantry or fridge looking for a snack. Usually, I end up eating something unhealthy, like cookies. Sure, I could have carrots and hummus, but I’m always craving sweets. Enter these no-bake snacks. They are like little bites of granola; sweet and filling, but somewhat healthier than a cookie, since there is no butter or sugar involved. These little bites are delicious for an afternoon snack, midnight snack, or even a breakfast on the go. 

1 cup Oats
2/3 cups Coconut Flakes
1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Ground Flaxseed
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
1/3 cup Honey
1 tablespoon Chia Seeds
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients until well mixed. Cover and chill for about 30 minutes. Roll the chilled mixture into ping-pong sized balls. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Makes 15-20 granola bites.
