PB-Cinna-Choco Energy Bites

I have a massive sweet tooth. I think its genetic, so I blame my dad. But seriously, I can’t make it through the day without some sort of dessert. I’ve made a few different types of these no-bake energy bite cookies before and they can do the trick for me from time to time. Now that I have my dairy issue, these have made it back to the top of the quick dessert list.

These are yummy and easy to whip together. Plus, in a non air conditioned house, I never want to turn on my oven to make real cookies in the summer, so these are a great substitute. I even excuse eating them as a snack because, I mean, they are healthy…right?!
energy bites you will need:
½ cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup shredded coconut, toasted
½ cup ground flax meal
¼ cup mini cinnamon chips
¼ cup mini chocolate chips (I use vegan, dark chocolate chips)
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch nutmeg

In a medium bowl, combine the peanut butter, honey and vanilla extract. Add in the remaining ingredients and then mix everything together until well combined. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Once chilled, shape mixture into 1 inch balls. Store in the fridge for up to a week…if they last that long 😉

makes: about 20
time: 10 minutes prep + 20 minutes chilling + 5 minutes to roll the dough into balls
