Because I love on-the-go breakfast options, I usually bake muffins for Bill to eat for breakfast on his drive to the office. I wanted to find a healthier alternative using oatmeal, since it's basically a health super-food and stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest (from fitsugar.com).
After making a few adjustments to suit our style, I have perfected the recipe for Oatmeal Energy Bites.
Oatmeal Energy Bites
1 C peanut butter
1 C honey
1 C dried fruit/nut mix
3 C rolled oats
Mix peanut butter, honey, fruit/nuts and oatmeal together until combined. Form into balls using small scoop and roll through shredded coconut. Bake at 350º for 15-20 min until coconut is toasty. Enjoy!
Here they are step-by-step:
|Get all your ingredients out|
|Mix them up!|
|Insert sad dog who didn't get to lick the spoon...|
|"WHAT?! PEANUT BUTTER?!!"|
|Roll in coconut|
|Cram them on the sheet - they don't spread!|
|Ta-da!! Toasty, nutty, oaty delicious bites.|
What's your favorite on-the-go snack?
