If you know me, you know that my cooking/baking skills are about at the level of a 5 year old so it's kind of funny that I am posting a recipe but this one is legitimately easy! There is actually no baking or cooking involved! I have been fooled by many recipes that say "This is easy! Anyone can do it!" And then somehow I can't do it so clearly I am not in the "anyone" category. BUT these energy bites are actually really easy to make, semi healthy, and yummy! Well...at least A told me he thought they were yummy but he could have just said that to make me feel good. He also calls me "Chef-Boy-R-Jenny" from time to time to make me feel good too so you can just make them and judge their yumminess for your self!Here it is!
- 1 cup (dry) old fashioned oatmeal
- 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Method: Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Let chill in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like. Store in a container and keep refrigerated! Makes about 20 bites!
Enjoy the energy!
