NO BAKE ENERGY BITES
1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats)
2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
1/2 cup Almond butter
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup Maple Syrup
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Optional coconut oil (try 2-4 tablespoons)
Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Cover and 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.
