Description

No Bake Coconut Cranberry Energy Bites are loaded with nutritious ingredients in a small bite size snack. Peanut butter, oatmeal, coconut, dried cranberries, flax seed, chia seeds and honey give these a sweet, nutty flavor. These make a great toddler snack, or you can pop these in your mouth post workout, when you are running errands, or freeze a batch for later.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats, old fashioned
  • 3/4 cup coconut {I used unsweetened, but feel free to use sweetened}
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup honey {or more as needed}
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons flax seed

Instructions

  1. Line a large cooking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Put all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well to combine. Put the dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour to help the ingredients stick together.
  3. Using a cookie scoop or your hands shape the bites and place on the parchment lined cookie sheet.
  4. Enjoy!
  5. {You can store these in an airtight container on the counter, in the refrigerator or the freezer.}

Notes

If you freeze these take one out of the freezer and let it sit out for 20 minutes before you are ready to eat it. [br][br]If at any point the bites don’t seem to be sticking together very well add more honey in order to get a stickier consistency.[br][br]The amount you make will depend on the size of the ball that you make.
