No bake peanut butter energy bites!

Today I made bite sized balls (ha ha…) These are perfect for snacking and are so quick to make- they will replace your crappy store bought granola bars.

My recipe:

1 cup of rolled oats

1/4 cup cacao powder

1/4 cup chia seeds

2 tablespoons of honey

2 tablespoons of peanut butter (or any kind of nut butter- i prefer peanut)

3 tablespoons unsweetened apple sauce (optional)

DIRECTIONS: Combine ingredients in bowl and stir. Once mixed together form the mixture into small balls (if you are finding this hard you can put the mixture in the fridge for a bit first). Then, put balls in fridge for 10 minutes to set.

NOTE: you can add pretty much ANYTHING to these. You could add pumpkin seeds, almond butter, cashew butter,coconut shavings, raisins, nuts…the possibilities are really endless! I just came up with the recipe after reading a bunch online and made a variation based on what I had available.
