This is a healthy take on the traditional no bake cookies. So good and good for you! I am always asked for this recipe every time I make them. They are a hit with the kids and the adults, and always go quick! I store them in the freezer because I think they taste best frozen, but not necessary.

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup ground flax seed
  • ½ cup crunchy peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine oats, chocolate chips, flax seed, peanut butter, honey, and vanilla extract together in a bowl; form into balls using your hands. Arrange energy bites on a baking sheet and freeze until set, about 1 hour.

  5. Made these few weeks ago, keep in fridge for when I need-yes need;) easy, yummy & health conscious. I added some dark chocolate nut butter, as well peanut butter, added some cinnamon, & didn't have enough vanilla so augmented with almond.
