No Bake Energy Bites
My hubby and I have been hiking several days a week on our local mountain, Bradbury Mountain. We always hike before dinner, so we are pretty hungry! I made up these (and several versions of) No Bake Energy Bites to carry us through the hunger.
Find the basic recipe here: http://bakinginsaskatoon.com/2012/10/23/no-bake-energy-bites-by-lynne/ Then, make it your own! I have added all different nuts and seeds, some chocolate covered sunflower seeds, chocolate chips and more.
No-Bake Energy Bites - makes about 25 1-inch balls
1 cup old fashioned oats
2/3 cup toasted coconut (I didn't use coconut, hubby doesn't care for it)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup flax seed meal
1/3 cup dried cranberries, chopped
1/3 cup raw almonds, chopped
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla (I left out the vanilla, I didn't think it needed it)
Place all ingredients into a large bowl.
With a rubber spatula, mix ingredients together until thoroughly combined. You could use your hands since you’ll be rolling the dough anyway, but I thought it was just too sticky when first combining the ingredients to do so.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls.
Store in an air-tight container.
