Simple and tasty No Bake Energy Bites – filled with honey, flaxseed, chocolate chips, oats and peanut butter, these energy balls are great to have on hand!
Happy 2018 everyone! I hope you all partied hard for New Year’s Eve. We also hope you didn’t hold back on the yummy foods since it may have been your last chance to pig out before you set goals to be healthier in the new year. Did you know that only 8% of goal setters actually stick to their new years resolutions? That’s a pretty sad percentage! We don’t want you falling into that 92%, so we’re kicking of 2018s Tried and True series with a practical recipe for No Bake Energy Bites, which won’t add to your love handles. 😉
These energy bites are similar to this recipe, with a few changes. We left out the coconut and blended the oats and chocolate chips, which I think changed the texture a bit. We love both recipes but love to change things up and are glad we tried this version. This recipe has so many natural ingredients that increase energy but also has that natural fat that is actually good for you.
Even though we left out the coconut, you can definitely add it or customize these Energy balls to your liking. We love them as is but may try adding the coconut back in next time for added flavor. 😉
