Energy Bites

One of my favorite things about the summertime is having the chance to cook! I love eating homemade recipes all day :) These energy bites are great to eat at any time of the day. I especially enjoyed them before a morning run or for an afternoon snack to hold me over before dinner. Easy and versatile - I make these differently each time I make it depending on what I have in my pantry.

  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter (I used half almond butter/half peanut butter)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup flaxseed
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 1/2 cup mini dark chocolate chips (optional)
  • handful of your favorite nuts - I picked sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit (I chose Trader Joes assortment of dried mixed berries).
  1. Add all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix together.
  2. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir well so that everything sticks.
  3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to make it easier to roll into small bite size balls. (I placed the energy bites into muffin liners so they wouldn't get stuck together)!
  4. Pop two or three (if you can stop there) of these babies every morning for an extra boost of energy!
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
