No-Bake Energy Bites – from GimmeSomeOven
By far one of my favourite recipes – sweet and a bit like cookie dough, but stuffed with fiber and protein. The recipe below is a good place to start, but is entirely customisable. Try adding hemp, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, dark chocolate, etc.
- 1 cup (dry) oatmeal
- 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup ground flaxseed or wheat germ
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp. chia seeds (optional)
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Stir all ingredients together until thoroughly mixed. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator – 30 minutes, or overnight. Roll into balls approx 1″ in diameter.
Store in the fridge in an airtight container. They’ll stay good for about 1 week … Though, I doubt they’ll last that long!
