Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats regular or gluten free
  • 1/2 cup natural creamy peanut butter almond butter will work if you have a peanut allergy
  • 1/2 cup flaxmeal
  • 2 T 100% pure maple syrup
  • 2-3 T honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ c chocolate chips
  • ½ c shredded coconut (optional)
  • ¼ tsp sea salt

Instructions

  • Combine oats, flax, sea salt, and coconut (if using) and stir. Add in peanut butter, maple, honey, vanilla and stir to fully incorporate.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • For ease in rolling into balls, freeze for about 10-20 minutes before rolling up.
  • Roll into bite sized balls. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If the mixture doesn't seem thick of sturdy enough, add another 1/4 cup of oats or so. Different peanut butters can alter the thickness of the recipe.
  • I use creamy, natural peanut butter--the kind you have to stir. I find this kind of peanut butter to be the best for recipes like this. It is so much easier to stir and incorporate into the mixture.
  • Seriously, change up the chocolate chips each time you make these peanut butter energy bites. I am obsessed with using white chocolate chips lately. Sometimes, I don't use any chips either ( I know, I know) just to have something different. You can also add a drizzle of chocolate instead on top.
