No-Bake Peanut Butter Energy Bites – Grab and go snack!

This recipe is a great, fun and quick snack for before and after a run. Runners don’t generally have enough energy in their body before they head out, and this is a great way to quickly give you the fuel you need.

These are also great for the very long hikes and runs. They are light, provide tons of energy, and are easy to eat on the fly.

Ingredients:

1 cup (dry) oatmeal (we use gluten free oatmeal in our recipes, but normal oatmeal is fine!)
2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed or wheat germ
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla

Method:

Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. 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.
Other optional add ins:

chopped dried fruit (apricots, dates, raisins, etc.)
dried berries (cranberries, cherries, etc.)
chopped almonds, pecans, walnuts

    when its warm out they do tend to get a bit on the soft side but whether they keep their shape or not it still tastes the same 🙂
