Here’s the recipe I found the other day….Abbey has made them 3 times now! We keep them in the fridge. They are DELISH!

No-Bake Energy Bites
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Yield: About 3 dozen

These delicious little no bake energy bites are the perfect healthy snack!
Ingredients:

• 1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats)
• 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
• 1/2 cup peanut butter
• 1/2 cup ground flaxseed or wheat germ
• 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
• 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
• 1 Tbsp. chia seeds (optional)
• 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like. (Mine were about 1″ in diameter.) Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
Makes about 20-25 balls.

    These look /sound yummy. Substitute carob chips for chocolate chips, I might do. Thank you, now if i just knew how to calculate for Weight Watchers. Anyone out there have an idea?

    Do you have any ideas as to the approximate calorie count of one of these? They look and sound delicious!
