(I adapted the recipe from http://www.gimmesomeoven.com/no-bake-energy-bites/. She adapted it from someone else. Etc, etc. This recipe is so variable and is found in so many places online.)
My husband LOVES no-bake cookies. It was a childhood favorite in his family. Meanwhile, honestly, I can take or leave them. I’m more of a granola bar sort of gal. So, when I found this recipe for bite-sized, no-bake bundles of energizing goodness, I was sold. I did, however, want to make them my own, which I will share with you.
- 1 cup uncooked oats
- 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup chia seeds (or ground flax seed)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Then, mix the ingredients together in a large bowl, either by hand or stand mixer
Roll dough into balls, place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, and then chill for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
Yield: about 2 dozen. Prep and cook time: 10 minutes total.
