Almond Butter Energy Bites

Hope everyone had an AMAZING New Year! Looking forward to 2018 and what it has in store for my family and me. Today I would like to share with you my “Almond Butter Energy Bites.” No-bake and super easy to make and takes less than 10 minutes to put together. This recipe is the perfect, delicious snack, breakfast, or even dessert! They are great for freezing ahead as well. Packed with protein and is my go-to snack after a grueling workout. Loaded with oats, almond butter, flax seeds, cherries, and dark chocolate. Some healthy fats and fiber for a quick energy boost.

I love incorporating flax seed into things that I eat. Whether it be smoothies, sauces or my flax seed chicken tenders from my cookbook “The Seasoned Life.” Did you know that flaxseed is known to improve digestion, clear skin, lower cholesterol, and so much more? I love how flexible and forgiving this recipe is to make. If its too sticky add more oats if its too dry add more honey. You can use almond, peanut, cashew, sun butter or whatever you have on hand. My kids love helping me make these. Riley likes to pop these in her lunch box for school. Do you have a favorite energy bite variation? Please share yours in the comments below. Happy Monday!

Almond Butter Energy Bites

1 cup dry old fashioned oats
1 tablespoon flax seed
1/4 cup almond butter
1/4 cup honey
3 tablespoons mini dark chocolate chips
2 tablespoons chopped dried cherries (Optional)
Pinch of sea salt

Combine oats, dark chocolate, flax seed, almond butter, honey, cherries, and salt in a bowl. And use your hands to blend and mix all of the ingredients. ( A Perfect job for the kids to help with) Form into golf sized balls using your hands or a cookie scooper. Place energy bites on a parchment-lined baking sheet and allow to rest for about 30 minutes. This process will allow the oats to absorb some of the moisture and stick together.

They can be stored and refrigerated in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
