NEW CASTLE —
Oatmeal Energy Bites
One of our Jameson volunteers, Karen Kerber, shared this recipe with me. She said she loves it in the morning or later as a snack.
- 1 cup dry oat meal
- 1 cup toasted coconut flakes (optional)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup ground flax seed
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix all ingredients together until thoroughly mixed. Spray an 8 x 8 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Spread the mixture evenly in pan, cover with cling wrap, and putinto the refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill. Cut into even sections (either 12 or 16 squares). You can keep them in the fridge in the pan, covered, or store them in an airtight container in the fridgefor up to one week. Super easy. Super quick.
