No Bake Energy Bites

I’m always looking for new recipes to make for Lilly. I came across this one on Pinterest and thought I would check it out. So I went right to the source “Juggling With Kids” and found the recipe here. She’s got some great activities for kids on her blog too. I then looked up the link from her post, which came from “Smashed Peas and Carrots” – another great blog you can find here.

No Bake Energy Bar

1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/3 cup honey (or agave nector to make it vegan)
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup ground flaxseed (love putting this in everything)
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

Directions: (what I did)
1. All dry ingredients in bowl.

2. Add wet ingredients and mix well.

3. Put in fridge for 30 minutes (I did 45 as I lost track of time).

4. Roll into balls.

5. Limit intake of “no bake energy bars” – they are too good to be true!

No Bake Energy Bites

Now, I thought my picky little eater might be interested in these.

I was wrong!!!! She didn’t like them 😦

However, the next day I gave one to her again and she gobbled it up!

She’s loves them and now asks for “more”.

Looks like these will be a staple “treat” for the family. AND so easy to make vegan.
