1 cup old-fashioned oats
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup ground flaxseed
½ cup chocolate chips
⅓ cup honey
1 t. vanilla
Stir everything together in a large mixing bowl until combined. Cover the bowl and chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours or until the mixture is chilled. Roll into 1-inch balls. Serve or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to one week or freeze up to three months. Makes 20-25 energy bites.
Cook’s note: I personally don’t refrigerate the mixture before rolling into balls.
