Servings 24 Bites
- 2 cups organic GF Rolled Oats (I use Bob's Red Mills GF Version)
- 3/4 cup organic Peanut Butter, vegan-approved (I use Earth's Balance; See Notes!)
- 2 Tbsps organic chia seeds (I use Navitas Organics)
- 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (See Notes!)
- 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup vegan semisweet chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life Products)
- 1/3 cup organic coconut flakes
- pinch of sea salt
Add all ingredients to large bowl and mix everything together using one or both hands to ensure that all ingredients are well combined.
Immediately, add mixture in bowl to the refrigerator (covered) and chill for 30 minutes.
Once chilled, scoop 1 1/2 Tbsps of mixture and using both hands—roll into a small ball. Repeat until all mixture is made. NOTE: Be sure to add energy bites to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to ensure that they remain perfectly shaped.
Now, refrigerate rolled bites again for 5 minutes or so!
Removed from refrigerator and enjoy!
