No Bake Energy Bites

Hellooooo weekend and good morning Everyone! Saturday's are just the best! On a scale from 1-10, I'm about a 9 on the mood scale this morning. That's pretty high. I think it's because there are FORTY degree temperatures on the horizon. With the weather Michigan has been having, that will nearly feel like swimwear temps...nearly.

These little no bake energy bites taste like a chocolate chip peanut butter cookie. Most of my sweeter recipes have those ingredients - do we see a trend here? They are packed full of oats, honey, chia & flax seeds, and toasted coconut. I make them almost monthly and will indulge in one or two for dessert {or a sweet snack}. My sweet tooth saviors!

I found the recipe from Gimme Some Oven, and put some of my own personal touches on them. These little bites are extremely dense {and addicting} so be careful not to pop too many at once!
