Back-To-School Freezer Cooking: No-Bake Energy Bites

My children love this healthy snack.  The recipe is originally from Smashed Peas and Carrots and is a very flexible recipe and can be made with any type of mix-ins that your family likes. If you don't have flaxseed, try replacing that ingredient with finely chopped nuts, more oatmeal or more chocolate chips(!).

Because of a peanut allergy in our family, I used sunflower butter. We've also tried them with raisins, but I think the chocolate chip version is our favorite.

No-Bake Energy Bites

1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/3 cup honey
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix all ingredients and roll into balls.

To freeze, put them on a baking sheet and flash freeze for about 15 - 20 minutes.  Store frozen bites in a freezer bag or container in the freezer.  Put frozen bites directly into lunchboxes or thaw on the counter for 15 minutes and serve as an after-school snack.

Quick. Easy. Delicious.
