Full of natural ingredients... these little no-bake bites are a great treat packed full of healthy energy.
Of course, I offered them to Bjørn as "cookie dough" (That's what they taste like!!) so he would try one... he doesn't need to know any better and he loved them!
(I love the extra coconut kick and healthy fats from the coconut oil, but if you don't have any - feel free to use more honey instead!)
Cookie Dough No-Bake Energy Bites Recipe
adapted from smashed peas and carrots
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup sweetened or unsweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup ground almonds, ground flaxseed, or wheat germ
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together until well combined. You may want to use your [clean] hands for this... it's much easier!!
Once completely combined, roll the dough into small balls and place on a parchment or wax-paper lined baking sheet. Chill in the fridge or freezer until completely set before serving... at least an hour.
Store in tupperware in the fridge or freezer!
