There are several versions of these around, but this is how I make my energy bites. They are a perfect snack- a healthy combination of carbohydrates, protein, and fats. They are also great for those of us who suffer from a serious sweet tooth.
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup of nut butter, I used peanut butter
- 1/3 cup of honey or maple syrup
- 1/4 cup of almond meal
- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, melted
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients together, in a large bowl. Put the mixed ingredients in the fridge for 30-45 minutes just to allow them to harden. Take them out of the refrigerator, roll teaspoon sized balls, and viola!
