Easy No-Bake Energy Bites

I love pinterest. It is an amazing explosion of ideas and tips to try.

One recipe I'd found a while ago was for Energy Bites. They intrigued me because I often don't have time for a good breakfast before going to school. These looked easy and are full of healthy ingredients (yes, chocoloate is most definitely healthy:). So I pinned them to my board and kind of forgot about them.

Then the past couple of days, I have been preparing to go back to school next week and came across the recipe. Yesterday I picked up the ingredients (There is a fun store here called The Bin Inn where they have items for sale in bulk, including flour, cereal, sugar, coconut, etc.) and last night I made it.

They are amazing! I just hope they last through the week. I know next time to make a double batch.

In case you want to try your hand at them, here is the recipe.

No-Bake Energy Bites

1 cup oats
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla

*Mix all ingredients

*Refridgerate for 1 hour

*Roll into balls



PS That is not my photography, but they are definitely what inspired me to try them!
