These energy bites are a great snack and they satisfy a chocolate craving but they’re relatively healthy. They are easy to make and won’t heat up your house since they’re no bake. You just simply put them in the refrigerator once they’re prepared. They are a hit with most people and kids love them too.
I made these as a snack for when I was craving something sweet and found out that they’re a nice post-workout or post-yoga snack. I did change one thing though. I left the coconut out and added more oats. I have to admit, I’m not the biggest coconut fan. Make sure not to stop at just a few since they do have some sugar in them. My friends really enjoyed these too.
1/2 cup no stir almond butter
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Up to 4 tsp warm water, as needed
1 cup old fashioned oats (raw)
3/4 cup toasted or raw coconut
1/2 cup flaxseed meal
6 Tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a mixing bowl, stir together almond butter, honey, vanilla and cocoa powder. If mixture seems too thick stir in 2 tsp warm water to thin. Add oats, coconut, flaxseed meal and chocolate chips and stir until evenly coated. At this point if mixture still doesn’t stick well, stir in up to 2 tsp water as needed. Transfer mixture to refrigerator or freezer and chill until nearly set and easier to handle.
Remove from refrigerator and shape into 1-inch balls. Store in refrigerator in an airtight container.
