Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Line a tray with parchment or wax paper and set aside.
  2. Combine toasted oats, toasted almonds, ground flax, chocolate and salt in a medium bowl. Add maple syrup and vanilla. Stir to combine. Add peanut butter and mix, using a spoon to start and then using your hands to work the ingredients together well. Don’t worry if the mixture feels sticky. Let it sit for a few minutes to allow the wet ingredients to soak into the dry ingredients. Peanut butters differ widely in texture so If you find that even after a few minutes, the mixture sticks to the spoon when you try to shape the bites, add a bit more oats.
  3. Shape the bites: You can roll up a tablespoon full of the mix into a ball or, my favorite method is to use the tablespoon of my measuring spoons to shape the bites into little domes. Scoop a generous tablespoon full of mixture and press it firmly against the side or bottom of the bowl get it packed in tight. Then, gently push your finger in on one edge of the oat-peanut mixture to nudge it out of the spoon. It should slide out easily. Set the bites onto the prepared tray.
  4. Eat and enjoy! Peanut butter energy bites can be stored in a plastic bag or airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.

Notes

*Toast oats in a dry pan over medium high heat, stirring constantly, for a few minutes, until they color slightly.

*Toast almonds in a dry pan over medium high heat, stirring constantly, until they turn golden brown in spots, about 2 minutes.
