Peanut Butter Coconut Oat Energy Bites

I love having ready to eat snacks in the freezer for rushed mornings and to stash in my purse (or diaper bag!) for later in the day! These tasty little bites combine my favourite ingredients of peanut butter, honey, and coconut, with oats to make a sweet and satisfying snack! Best of all, they are quick and easy to make.

Peanut Butter Coconut Oat Energy Bites

2 cups oats (I like to combine steel cut with quick rolled oats)
1 & 1/2 half cups unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup natural peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
1 cup ground flaxseed
2/3 cup honey
2 teaspoons vanilla

Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl with your hands. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes. Remove from refrigerator and form into one-inch balls. Store in fridge for up to one week or freezer for two weeks.

If you find your "dough" too crumbly, melt a little extra honey and pour over, then mix again.
