Vegan No-Bake Energy Bites
Vegan No-Bake Energy Bites are easy, healthy, on-the- go snacks to give you a boost of plant-based protein throughout the day!
- ½ cup old fashioned rolled oats gluten free
- ⅓ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- ¼ cup ground flax seed
- 1 Tbsp chia seeds
- ¼ cup + 2 Tbs Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
- ¼ cup unsweetened dried fruit
Mix all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
Let the mixture chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to make them easier to roll.
Remove from fridge and roll the dough into balls, about one inch in diameter. If you are having a hard time getting them to stick, add some extra peanut butter.
Store the bites in the refrigerator or in the freezer for longer term storage. (Personally, I prefer eating them frozen.) Enjoy!
Any nut or seed butter can be used in place of peanut butter.
If you're not vegan, raw, local honey works in place of maple syrup.
