Recipe of the Week: Energy Bites

oatmealball

Oatmeal balls, energy bites, globules of deliciousness, whatever you want to call them- they are amazing. My favorite thing about them is that they take less than 10 minutes to prepare and you can really alter any recipe to fit whatever ingredients you have around your house. Sometimes I add extra chocolate if I want them as a dessert or I add a scoop of protein powder

My Classic Oat Bite Recipe

1 cup dry rolled oats

1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

½ cup nut butter (I used natural, unsalted peanut butter)

½ cup ground flax seed

½ cup chocolate chips (optional, may substitute with raisins, seeds, or cranberries)

1/4 cup raw honey

1 tsp vanilla
