No-bake energy bites – quick and easy to make, naturally sweetened with honey, and so delicious. Perfect for a quick breakfast, snack, or even a healthy dessert. Gluten-free and vegan.
The recipe calls for:
* chocolate chips
* toasted coconut
* vanilla extract, store-bought or homemade
* peanut butter
* old fashioned oats
* honey (or agave nectar)
* freshly ground flax seeds
* chia seeds (optional)
To make the no bake energy bites, just stir all of those ingredients together in a large bowl until combined.
Once the mixture is combined, pop it in the fridge for 10-20 minutes, so that it will harden slightly. This will help make it easier to roll it into balls.
Once the mixture has cooled slightly, shape it however you please, and refrigerate in an airtight storage container. Or if you’d rather, you can press the mixture into a baking dish lined with parchment paper and you make energy bars instead of bites.
The best thing about this recipe is that it is super flexible as well. So if you are allergic to any of the ingredients, or if you are just looking for other substitution ideas, feel free to use:
* Different (or no) chocolate
* Different nut butter
* Different sweetener.
