Energy Bites to the Rescue!

Problem:      My son needed a GFCFSF between-meal snack, to tide him over. And I didn’t want it to be junk.

Solution:      Energy Bites to the rescue! I whipped up a batch of these no-bake morsels of nutritional goodness and, well, everyone’s happy now.

Next time I think I’ll triple or quadruple the batch. [I have to hide these from my husband!]

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup rolled oats

½ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips [I use Enjoy Life brand dark chocolate morsels; they’re dairy, nut, gluten & soy free.]

½ cup ground flax seed

1 cup coconut flakes

½ cup sunflower butter or any nut butter, crunchy or smooth [I use Sunbutter Sunflower Spread.]

1/3 cup honey

1 teaspoon vanilla

DIRECTIONS:

Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Chill in the refrigerator for half an hour, roll into balls and enjoy! Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week, if they even last that long. I store these in the freezer because my guys like them best that way—but it’s not necessary.

Thanks to Susan for the idea! xoxo
