How to Make No Bake Energy Bites

gluten-free-energy-bites

These no bake energy bites are addictive. We made them yesterday and they are already gone! They are extremely fast and easy to make and are great to have on hand for hunger emergencies!

My kids are very picky eaters and gobble these up lightning fast!

Here’s the info! Printable version is below.

Grocery List:

1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats)
2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes (You can use shredded coconut)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flax seed (I got flax seeds at my local Harps and ground them in my coffee grinder)
1/2 cup chocolate chips or cacao nibs (optional – but YES!!)
1/3 cup honey or agave nectar
1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:

Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Cover and 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
