Oatmeal, Cranberry, & Chocolate Energy Bites

Serves: 12-15 balls

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

2 cups GF oats

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup nut butter

1/4 cup shredded coconut

1 tsp ground flax seed

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 – 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in a medium sized mixing bowl and mix with a fork (at the end it’s easier to use your hands)

2. Fold in chocolate chips

3. Using a spoon (or again your hands) scoop out about 1 Tbps worth of mixture and roll into balls

4. Place on plate and refrigerate for 10-20 minutes

5. Keep in the fridge

6. Enjoy!

*If you are lactating add 1 tsp of brewers yeast for extra milk producing powers!

These are a great snack for kids and adults alike! I love having these as a “dessert” or after a great workout.
