no bake energy bites

One of my favorite snacks recently has been these no-bake energy bites. They are an easy and delicious source of protein and fiber so they make for a good filling afternoon snack. After testing a bunch of recipes from Pinterest, I've adapted my own to share with you all. While they may not look delectable, I promise you they taste a LOT like cookies!

1 cup of old fashioned oats
1/4 cup ground flaxseed 
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (I sometimes use 1/4 cup PB2 and 1/4 cup real peanut butter)
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
The best part is the recipe is really easy to customize.  Sometimes, I add 2/3 cups toasted unsweetened coconut or use Nutulla instead of peanut butter.Or I wont grind the Flax Seed so the give the bites extra little crunch. All depends on what you like!

-Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.
-Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
-Remove from the refrigerator and squeeze/roll small handfuls into balls.
-Leave in an airtight container for up to a week.
-And that’s it!
