Super Satisfying Energy Bites
Ingredients: Prep Time: 10 mins, Servings: 18 (1-inch) balls
1 1/4 cups Rolled Oats - you can also swap quick oats or a blend of half quick, half old fashioned
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup raisins
2 tablespoons superfood ingredients - ground chia seeds, flaxseeds, hemp seeds
Place all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl: oats, optional superfood ingredients, nut butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, salt, mix-ins, and any other spices you'd like to add. Stir to combine. If the mixture seems too wet, add a bit more oats. If it's too dry, add a bit more nut butter. It should resemble a somewhat sticky dough that holds together when lightly squeezed. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to set (this will make the balls easier to roll later on).
Remove the bowl from the refrigerator and portion the dough into balls of desired size. I prefer about a 1 inch diameter size.
Good to know:
Store leftover energy balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months.
