how to make easy energy bites, healthy snacks

This week really got away from me!  One of the things I did was to create a quick and easy energy bite recipe.

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

1/3 cup raw nut butter (for this batch I used homemade cashew butter, but you can use any, even peanut butter)

1/3 cup raw honey

1 1/2 cups oatmeal (Old-fashioned, not instant)

1/4 cup raw seeds (I used pumpkin)

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)

Melt honey and nut butter.  While that is melting, mix together dry ingredients.  Pour in honey/butter mixture, mix together until all oatmeal is moistened.  This mixture will resemble wet granola.

Roll into 1″ balls (these are sticky!) and place on a pan.

Refrigerate until firm (or enjoy right away).   Keep leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.

These energy bites are my favorite afternoon pick-me-up snack, post-workout treat, or dessert.  The beauty of this recipe is that you can play around with the ingredients to your liking.  You can make the oats gluten-free, change the seeds, the nut butter, switch out the chocolate chips for white chocolate and add in some craisins…the possibilities are endless!

If you have a fun healthy workout snack, please leave a comment!  I’m always looking for good snack options! 🙂

Happy Friday!
