Hello! Can I just say that I am so excited for warmer weather this week! Because here in Minnesota it has been cold. Like snow flurries in April cold. Now, there are 70’s in the forecast and I am ready!
Aren’t these little energy bites just the cutest? This is the perfect recipe to have on hand for spring and summer. They are so easy to make, with no oven needed! We love to eat these for snacks or alongside a smoothie for breakfast. Delicious and filling!
These adorable little bites are so adaptable too. I use Sunbutter most of the time, but you could use any nut or seed butter. Feel free to get all crazy with the add-ins too. Don’t like coconut? Try dried fruit. Or mini chocolate chips if you’re feeling indulgent:-) Or maybe coconut and chocolate chips. Yes, that sounds just fine.
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- ½ cup sunflower seed butter
- ½ cup flax seed meal
- ⅓ cup maple syrup
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients well.
- Using your hands, roll into balls. I like to roll them small, about 1" in diameter. This makes them perfectly poppable.
- Store in the refrigerator.
