Boy, do I have a treat for you!
One of my favorite flavor combinations on earth has always been peanut butter and chocolate. The sweetness and the saltiness compliment each other perfectly. When I was home a couple of weeks ago, my mom made some energy bites, and as soon as I tried one I had to have the recipe. They are the perfect size for a little treat that leaves you feeling satisfied and not too guilty 🙂
- 1 cup dry oatmeal
- 1 cup toasted coconut (you can toast your own)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup chopped almonds (can use flax seed, pecans, etc)
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
Combine all ingredients together in a food processor.
Process until it is a sticky dough.
Once chilled, roll into 16 balls and store in the fridge. Enjoy!!
