“Energy Bites” a.k.a. healthy snack

These “Energy Bites” as Pinterest calls them, have suddenly become the rage. Funny thing is that I have been making them for years. An old Weight Watchers no-bake cookie recipe (flat…no trendy ball required) They are yummy, easy, travel well, kiddies love them and you can really throw anything you want in them as long as there is something sticky to keep them together 🙂

1 c rolled oats

1 c shredded coconut

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 c ground flaxseed

1/2 c mini chocolate chips, chopped apricots or prunes, raisins, mini m&m’s (whatever you want)

1/2 c peanut butter (I prefer natural but it really doesn’t work with these, you need the regular stuff)

1/3 c honey

Mix together. Chill for 30 minutes, roll into balls. Mmmmmm!
