I love these “No-Bake Energy Bites.
Some mornings I do not have time to cook breakfast, so these energy bites are a great grab and go treat. They are packed with fiber, protein and fruit. A couple bites will easily take away the morning hunger pains. I often change up the recipe by using different nut butters or raisins instead of dried cherries. They can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. The recipe makes 25 to 30 balls depending to the size of the balls.
1 Cup (dry) Oatmeal – (old-fashioned oats)
2/3 Cup toasted coconut flakes
1/2 Cup sunflower seed butter
1/2 Cup ground flaxseed
1/2 Cup dried cherries
1/3 Cup honey
1 Teaspoon vanilla
Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Let chill the refrigerator for half an hour then roll into balls. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week,
Makes about 20 -25 balls
