I enrolled my toddler in a little cooking class called Snack Attack. It is a fun little 30 minute class that includes a story and preparing a corresponding snack. She came home with the recipe for these yummy little energy bites one day and I knew they had to be good because she had eaten all of them in class! They are easy to make and very delicious. Perfect for a snack on the go.
No Bake Energy Bites
1 cup oatmeal1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/3 cup honey
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (you can also substitute raisins or dried cranberries for a healthier version)
1 tsp vanilla
Mix everything above in a medium bowl until thoroughly incorporated. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls and enjoy! Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week. Makes 18-20 bites.
