No Bake Energy Bites
Sigh. Recipes will just be getting the best of me here lately.
These were so easy to make, and I had all the organic ingredients on hand too.
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup chocolate chips *
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix all ingredients and roll into bite size balls and refrigerate.
Note: *For the chocolate chips,I used a non-gmo mini chocolate chip that I can buy in the organic section of my grocer (health stores sell them too).
I accidentally left out the vanilla extract.
I had one eye on the mixing bowl and one eye on King, who was "eyeing" my mixing bowl. Hence the forgetful mind while mixing.
I'll be making them again, and again, and trying it with the vanilla next time.
Gosh only knows, I'll need those little power boosters this summer too.
I used organic old fashioned oats too. I think I got about 2 1/2 dozen "bites" from the batch too. I used my small cooking scoop.
The family devoured them. The best part, is that I can make these in the heat of summer, and not heat up my house in the process too.
I'd keep them in the refrigerator too. If you leave them out, they get soft and fall apart a bit.
