One day, I’ll quit mooching and come up with my own recipes, but for now, I’m enjoying using everyone else’s.
This is one of the greatest snacks I’ve found! I’m always looking for opportunities to hide flaxseed in my kids’ food, so I jumped on this recipe for “No Bake Energy Bites.” There are several more ideas for add-ins on her website if you want to check it out.
- 1 C dry oatmeal
- 2/3 C toasted coconut flakes (I just used some straight from the freezer)
- 1/2 C peanut butter
- 1/2 C ground flaxseed
- 1/2 C chocolate chips
- 1/3 C honey
- 1 t vanilla
Stir ingredients well. Let chill in refrigerator for about an hour. Roll into balls (1 inch diameter). Store in refrigerator for up to a week.
This is easy! And, you probably won’t feel bad about giving them to your kids! (Unless they have peanut allergy like one of mine. He’s exempt!)
