No Bake Energy Bites

I've been trying to stick with no-bake recipes this summer, and this is one of the best of the bunch.  

These tasty treats are easy, healthy, delicious! 
 They have protein, high-fiber and contain NO refined sugar! 

That's a pretty good mix I'd say. 

Thank you to Amee at Amee's Savory Dish who linked these up at another one of our awesome and wonderful Weekend Potlucks!
(I think you'll see a trend here...I make a lot of those linked dishes!) 

Please stop over and visit Amee - tell her I said hello.  She hosts "Fit & Fabulous Friday" linky parties and I am always happy to take part and check out the other amazing HEALTHY dishes linked up there. 

These would make a great snack or even breakfast. I sure enjoyed mine with my morning coffee (& stevia!=) 

I made make mine in the food processor because it was already setting out, so the texture of mine is smoother than Amee's.  


1 c. dry whole old-fashioned oats
(I used 7-grain - found at my bulk food store)
1 c. toasted coconut flakes
1/2 c. chocolate chips
(My homemade no-sugar recipe is here)
1/2 c. (natural) peanut butter
1/2 c. ground flaxseed
1/3 c. agave or honey
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl (or food processor for a smoother texture) and chill for 30 minutes. Roll into balls.  Enjoy.  Dip in dark chocolate for a special treat.
