No-Bake Energy Bites

In the spirit of the arrival of the summer months -- and the fact that it is now officially “beach season” here -- I have another SkinnyChow recipe for you all -- and it’s a sweet one!  These no-bake energy bites are filling, protein packed, and really satisfy your craving for something chocolatey/peanut buttery/coconutty {yes, I made up that word}.
These bites are one of those things you can whip up on a lazy day and keep in the fridge for the week -- taking a couple with you when you run errands, etc.  There’s nothing I hate more than getting hangry {hungry + angry} in the car in the middle of the day.  These solved my problems last week!  Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

No-Bake Energy Bites (makes 20 bites)

1 c. oatmeal
1/2 c. peanut butter (or any other nut butter)
1/3 c. honey
1 c. coconut flakes
1/2 c. ground flaxseed
1/2 c. mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
Mix everything is a medium bowl until incorporated.  Let chill in the fridge for half an hour.  Once chilled, roll into balls.  Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
