No Bake Energy Bites

These bite sized oat snacks are perfect for mid-day cravings and breakfasts on the go.  They can even substitute as a "healthier" cookie for the kids.
 No Bake Energy Bites
Recipe from Smashed Peas and Carrots

1 c. regular oats
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/3 c. honey
1 c. coconut flakes
1/2 c. ground flaxseed OR wheat germ
1/2 c. mini chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix everything until thoroughly incorporated.
Let chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Once chilled, roll into balls.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

**Peanut butter can be substituted for any nut butter, and the combination of mix-in options is limitless. For more of a 'cookie' bite, I'll use Nutella with almonds and mint chips.
