No Bake Energy Bites

This is one of those recipes that is all over food blogs and Pinterest. This particular version is from Gimme Some Oven and it's perfect. My kids all love these bites and my 9 year old asks me to make them all the time. They taste a little like no-bake cookies. Yum! It's a great snack for school lunch boxes or snack time. This recipe makes anywhere from 20-25 bites, depending on how big you make the balls; I used a small cookie scoop to help me make them about the same size and got 22 bites.

No Bake Energy Bites

1 cup dry oats
2/3 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a medium bowl stir all the ingredients together until mixed well. Cover and refrigerate for half an hour. 

Once chilled, scoop out dough (a small cookie scoops works well) and shape into balls. Place shaped bites into an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to a week.
