Trail Mix Energy Bites
Serves: 12 balls
1 cup dry bobs red mill gluten free oats (I like ½ old fashioned oatmeal and ½ quick cooking)
¼ cup peanut butter
¼ cup honey
¼ cup dry roasted peanuts
¼ cup mini M&M's
dash of salt
½ teaspoon vanilla, optional
In a medium bowl, add all of the ingredients and stir to combine well. The mixture should be a bit sticky. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Use a spoon to scoop about a tablespoon of the cookie ball mixture into your hand. Roll into a ball. Repeat with remaining mixture. This should make about 12 oatmeal energy balls.
Store the balls covered in the fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for much longer.
Keep in mind you can create what you want with this. Add raisins, chocolate chips, flaxseed, different nut varieties, the list goes on!
