No Bake Energy Bites



My Pinterest recipe for today is No Bake Energy Bites from
http://www.gimmesomeoven.com/no-bake-energy-bites/


Note from Theresa: I used old fashioned oats and ground flaxseed.  Instead of chocolate chips, I added dried cranberries.  I did everything else the same.
Ingredients
  • 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 (optional)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Method

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