No-Bake Energy Bites

I was on Facebook the other day and another blogger was raving about how delicious these No-Bake Energy Bites were.  She wasn't kidding.  They were so good I was afraid that my kids would eat them all before I could even get a picture of them.

1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/3 cup honey
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.

Mix the ingredients thoroughly and let it chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.

Once the mix is chilled, roll into balls and enjoy!

Perhaps make 2 batches...these will disappear fast!

My son gave these energy bites a two thumbs up!

If anyone in your family members have allergies to any of the ingredients, you can substitute almost anything .  Some suggestions mentioned in Smashed Peas and Carrots are:

-Almond butter
-Cashew butter
-Sun butter
-Agave nectar
-Maltitol syrup
-Crushed cereal
-Wheat germ
-Whole wheat flour
