(aka Energy Bars/Balls)
1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats)
2/3 cup coconut flakes (you can toast them – optional)
3/4 cup almond butter (can substitute any nut or seed butter of your choice)
1/2 cup ground flaxseed (I have used wheat germ and it has worked to)
3/4 cup cacao nibs (can substitute with dried fruit, nuts and berries or a combination of all – let your creativity go wild and personalize these)
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Let chill in the refrigerator for about 15-30 minutes. Once chilled, roll into balls of about 1-2” (perfect portion size) Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
Makes about 15-20 Bites.
