Tasty Tuesday: No Bake Energy Bites

I first started making these No Bake Energy Bites when I was pregnant several years ago.  They were the perfect thing when I was craving something sweet because they satisfied my craving but were still kind of healthy.

These energy bites are so easy to mix up that there is really no excuse not to make them.  Well, unless you are like my sister-in-law and  don’t like peanut butter or something- then you might have a good reason.  Otherwise, go and mix these little babies up and be ready for that next sweet tooth attack!

No Bake Energy Bites
3/4 c. peanut butter (+ more for desired consistency)
1/3 c. honey
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. oatmeal (we prefer old fashioned)
1/2 c. of one of the following: wheat germ, coconut, flax seed, sesame seeds, or more oatmeal
1/2 to 1 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 to 1/2 c. mini chocolate chips

Combine peanut butter, honey and vanilla; add remaining ingredients.  Add more peanut butter if needed to get a good consistency.  Refrigerate for 30 min. then roll into bite sized balls.  Keep refrigerated.  Can be stored in freezer.
