NO-BAKE WEEK: Energy Bites

July 8, 2012 

The middle of summer is the perfect time to learn a new no-bake recipe. Today, it's a healthier take on no-bake cookies from the blog Gimme Some Oven.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup oatmeal
2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed or wheat germ
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla

Along with full directions, Gimme Some Oven has lots of ideas for modifications like using dried fruit and nuts.
