All Natural Energy Bites

By Cassie McCully

As you may have noticed, things have been rather quiet around here.  We are working on a blog transition and have quite a few loose ends to complete.  Until we get settled, I'm going to leave you with an irresistible recipe.  It's a perfect snack for all of you last minute shoppers, those of you heading to the mountain this winter, and those who are going to motivate the rest of us during the holiday with their unwavering commitment to the gym.

All Natural Energy Bites
Adapted from
Makes approximately  16 walnut-sized bites

1/2 C. nut butter ( almond butter, peanut butter or any kind of nut butter--I buy Adam's Natural Creamy)
1/3 C. honey
1 C. old fashioned rolled oats
1 C. shredded unsweetened coconut (you can substitute here with any dry ingredients, including nuts and seeds.  I used 3/4 C. wheat germ and a small handful of ground flax seed).
1-2 tsp. vanilla
1-2 tsp. spices (optional-I didn't add any)
pinch of sea salt
1/2 C. of other addins (nuts, seeds, dried fruit, dark chocolate chips etc.  I added chocolate chips).

1. In a large bowl, mix the nut butter, honey, vanilla and salt if desired. 
2.  Once combined add the remaining ingredients.  Mix well.
3.  Place in the fridge for 15 or so minutes.
4. Remove from the fridge and begin to roll the dough into walnut (or smaller) size bites.
5.  Place in an airtight container in the fridge or in the freezer for a quick and delicious snack!
