Recipe – No Bake Energy Bites


energy1

I’ve decided to finally take control of what goes into my body.  I’m not going to say I’m dieting, because diets fail.  What I’ve decided to do was to finally take a stand on what’s going in my (and my families) bodies.  What does that mean?

Eating healthier!  Eating cleaner!  I’m not saying we never go out to eat anymore, because we do, but it’s fewer and far between, I’m not going ALL ORGANIC, I just can’t afford to do that with a family of 4, but when I can, I do.  I’m cooking more at home, cooking a little more naturally, and making healthier decisions when I do cook.

I’ve also decided to use a resource I have, my fabulous Zumba Instructor MiZFitness-Liz Davis.  Liz just had a baby and her motivation throughout her pregnancy and after has inspired me beyond belief.  She’s also a fitness coach, which I’m taking advantage of very soon to help me reach my goals.

A few weeks ago she posted a recipe that sounded really good so I decided to try it out, not only do I like it but so does my youngest daughter and my hubby, so yummy!!!

No-Bake Energy Bites
(makes 18-20 bites)

Ingredients
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/3 cup raw honey
1 cup shredded unsweetened organic coconut
1/2 cup ground flaxseeds
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

Directions
Take all of your ingredients and mix them all up into a bowl until everything is thoroughly mixed. energy2Put into the refrigerator for about a half hour.

Once your ingredients have been chilled, roll them into balls, and ENJOY!

The Energy Bites can be placed into an air tight container and into the fridge for about a week.

There are various things you can put into your energy bites, don’t want to go organic don’t, don’t want to use peanut butter you can use any other kind of ‘butter’ that you’d like.

Next time I’m going to try to make them with agave nectar, you can also use that or any other kind of honey or syrup you’d like. I’m also going to maybe add some protein powder and goji berries to them, play around, you can add/omit things and make them your own!

Smashed Peas and Carrots where the recipe originated from, has a ton of other ideas you can use to substitute things in this recipe.

Visit my friend Liz on her Facebook page MizFitness-Liz Davis, Twitter @ZFitWithLiz, and on her blog, she has some amazing recipes and tips daily!
