If you are looking for a homemade healthy snack, these no-bake energy bites are for you! They are little nuggets of yummy goodness, easy and quick to make.

This recipe is thanks to gimme some oven. The oatmeal, chocolate and peanut butter are a filling and tasty combination. Honey and vanilla add a touch of natural sweetness to satisfy a sweet tooth, but not so much that they taste sugary. If you can’t find ground flax seed, you can buy the whole seeds and grind them in a coffee grinder.

Ingredients:

1 cup old fashioned oatmeal (dry oats)

1 cup toasted coconut flakes

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup peanut butter (or almond butter)

1/2 cup ground flax seed

1/2 cup honey

1 tsp vanilla

Method:

Stir all ingredients together in a bowl until thoroughly mixed. Let chill in the refrigerator for a half hour. Once chilled, roll into balls of about an inch in diameter. That’s it!

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Makes about 20 balls.

Enjoy!
