no bake energy bites, super cocoa edition

recipe adapted from Gimme Some Oven

Super Cocoa No Bake Energy Bites

1 c old-fashioned oats
2/3 c coconut, shredded
2 tbsp chia seeds
4 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 c natural creamy peanut butter
1/2 c flax
1/2 c chocolate chips
1/3 c honey
2 tsp vanilla
1-3 tbsp whey or yogurt, if necessary

mix. if mixture is too dry to ball, add the whey. roll into balls. eat.

the “roll into balls” stage isn’t actually necessary. i may or may not be guilty of skipping this stage and eating it straight from the storage container. just sayin’.

these are quite filling. i love that. the peanut butter and honey give the cocoa a rich, almost heady taste, and it satisfies even my worst chocolate cravings. this recipe is flexible, too! chia seeds are optional, chocolate chips can be substituted with nuts, nuts can be added, whatever you feel.

enjoy 🙂
