Boy, do I have a treat for you!

 

One of my favorite flavor combinations on earth has always been peanut butter and chocolate.  The sweetness and the saltiness compliment each other perfectly.  When I was home a couple of weeks ago, my mom made some energy bites, and as soon as I tried one I had to have the recipe.  They are the perfect size for a little treat that leaves you feeling satisfied and not too guilty 🙂

 

Energy Bites

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dry oatmeal
  • 1 cup toasted coconut (you can toast your own)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds (can use flax seed, pecans, etc)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla

 

 

Directions:

Combine all ingredients together in a food processor.

Process until it is a sticky dough.

Transfer to a bowl and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Once chilled, roll into 16 balls and store in the fridge.  Enjoy!!
