RECIPE - NO BAKE ENERGY BITES


These no-bake energy bites are the easiest snack to keep on hand for those rushed mornings or for when you just need a sweet little pick-me-up in the afternoon. 
One Sunday morning I was getting ready for church and all of a sudden remembered I was supposed to bring cereal bars for the bump-in team breakfast. There's nothing open in Oxford at 6am. I realized I had all the ingredients to make energy bites. Plot twist: we had a guest sleeping in the living room of our flat which, coincidentally, is also where our kitchen is located. I stealthed in there like a ninja, collected all the ingredients from the cupboard and proceeded to make them on the windowsill in my bedroom. All in time to get to church by 6:30am. I told you - easy
Another great thing about these treats? You can customize to your hearts content! As long as you keep the wet/dry ratio to ensure the proper consistency, feel free to add in/switch out ingredients. Some suggestions: try almond butter instead of peanut butter, use 1/2 cup flax seed and use less oats, instead of chocolate chips use dried cranberries, maple syrup is a great alternative to honey. You see? Customize! (They also taste delicious dipped in chocolate, just so you know). Check out the video below for a quick breakdown of how easy these are!

What you'll need:
  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/3 cup coconut 
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter 
  • 1/3 cup honey 

Method
  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes 
  • Roll into bite-sized rounds
  • Keep refrigerated in a sealed container for up to a week
