Welcome to Monday…ok, maybe not the happiest day of the week but I hope most of you were able to catch that extra hour of sleep but if not, or even if so, today I’m sharing these No Bake Energy Bites to give you a little burst when the afternoon lull kicks in.
I’ve been really trying to find some new snacks that are healthier but still taste good. Yes, these have a little chocolate but chocolate in moderation is OK, right? For me, around 3 in the afternoon at work I need a little pick me up to get me through the rest of the work day and hoping it tides me over until I’ve made dinner. If I come home from work and start snacking, well, I’m in trouble! These bites have some of my favorite ingredients and eating a couple are filling for me.
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup toasted coconut
- 1/4 cup ground flax
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup Peanut Butter & Co Bee’s Knees peanut butter (or plain)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup chopped craisins
- 1 tbl chia seeds
- Combine all ingredients and roll into about 1″ balls
- Keep refrigerated
With the holiday season coming up, we’ll all be needing extra energy too! These will keep in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks in a closed container. Feel free to substitute some of the ingredients with your favorites. The key is just making sure they hold together when shaped.
Enjoy and have a great week!!
