With the holiday season in full swing, we are always looking for new and fun snacks. When we stumbled upon Gimme Some Oven’s no bake energy bites a couple years ago, we were immediately hooked. These no bake energy bites, along with different variations are the perfect healthy holiday snack to share with guests (if they last that long!). Not only are they easy to make, they are a great way to get the entire family involved. We hope you will love them as much as we do!
Prep time: 10 mins Total time: 40 mins
• 1 cup (dry) oatmeal (we used old-fashioned oats)
• 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
• 1/2 cup peanut butter
• 1/2 cup ground flax seed
• 1/2 cup chocolate chips or cacao nibs (optional)
• 1/3 honey (or agave nectar)
• 1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Stir all ingredients until combined. We opted to use our hands instead of a spoon. Cover and pop in the fridge for 30 minutes, allowing the mixture to harden slighting. Roll into balls and enjoy! Bites can be stored refrigerated for up to a week.
