I have gone around and around on what my first “official” blog post should be about. I have so many recipes and ideas that I wish to share that I have been debating for over a week what to post/make first. While I was overthinking, and not writing, I finally came to conclusion that I should just share what I made today with my 2-year-old; the famous energy bites.
What I love about this recipe is that they are easy to make (see picture of 2-year-old). Plus they are a much better choice for those sweet cravings. Although we make energy bites in many varieties, my favorite remains in my original recipe.
Yields: approximately 2 dozen
All you need:
- 1 cup dry oatmeal
- ½ cup peanut butter
- ½ cup ground flaxseed
- ½ cup dark chocolate chips, chopped
- 1/3 cup honey
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
All you do:
- Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
- Roll “batter” into balls to desired size. It might be helpful to chill batter prior to rolling into balls, however, it is not necessary.
- That’s it! Now enjoy J
Other ingredients that may be used, but not limited to, included dried fruit, chopped nuts, chia seed, coconut flakes, M&Ms, etc.
