what with all the running i’ve been doing lately, i’ve been looking for healthy and tasty energy sources and the no-bake energy bite recipe from the smashed peas and carrots blog definitely fits the bill. and as an added bonus, if made them with non-contaminated oats then they fit right in with my (mostly) gluten free lifestyle.
and they’re super simple to make! it’s win-win-win.
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
mix all the stuff up in a bowl real good, refrigerate for a time, then roll up into little balls and enjoy.
