While on Pinterest I saw many of these recipes entitled "energy bites"and they looked very interesting. Of course I had to try it myself because I had all the ingredients on hand. These are almost like a cookie form of a granola bar, which is pretty wonderful. There are many other recipes out there with different variations that I would recommend you try if you like these!
What you need:
1 cup oats
⅔ cup toasted shredded coconut
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup mini chocolate chips
⅓ cup honey
1 Tbsp. chia seeds
1 tsp vanilla
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
Roll and compress the mixture into 1 inch rounds and place on parchment paper
Refrigerate a few minutes until firm and then transfer to an air tight container.
Refrigerate and enjoy for up to one week.
*These can be very sticky and hard to handle. I would recommend using a cookie scoop to shape the bites just for convenience.
