Chewy Coconut Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

For those of you that don’t know, I’m a teacher.  Every Monday we have professional development meetings.  Each staff member signs up for a few meetings to bring a group snack to.  Sometimes the snack ends up being donuts, cake, or cookies.  Not that I have anything wrong with those delicious desserts, but I reserve my splurges for the weekend.  So I usually end up bringing my own to munch on. This week happens to be my week to supply something yummy.  Along with a crate of clementines and a bag of apples, I made these.

 No Bake Chocolate Coconut Energy Bites

They taste like s’mores chewy granola bars and have the texture of a grainy dough.  These aren’t carrot sticks, but compared to the cholesterol laden coffee cakes we normally have available, these are healthy.  I tweaked the original recipe a tad and doubled it since I was making this for a crowd.  This is my big batch which made about 4 dozen.

2 cups old fashioned oats

1/3 honey

1/3 light agave nectar

1 cup ground flax

2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut

1 cup mini chocolate chips

2 t vanilla extract

1 cup natural creamy peanut butter

 

***********

Mix everything well.  Pop into fridge for a half hour or so to firm up a bit.  Roll into bite size balls.

Sounds like a good lineup of ingredients to me! Click here for the original recipe…Enjoy!

    Sounds delightful. I love healthy snacks. Do you have any recommendations for substituting the agave nectar? :)
