This is my favorite thing of all to make and eat. My boyfriend has me make a triple batch before his rugby tournaments almost every weekend and since I’m just so kind (aka since they are just so easy to make) I always oblige.
The ingredients (1 batch makes 15-18 small bites or 12 large bites):
- 1 cup oats
- 1/4 cup honey (if you prefer less of a peanut butter taste, use 1/3 cup, but I prefer less sugar)
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- 2/3 cup shredded coconut (toasted if you prefer)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
Have a Tupperware container lined with wax paper or parchament paper ready for the bites to be placed in, because my method gets messy.
Using your hands, mix all the ingredients together in a big bowl until the oats are well blended. Take small sections of the mixture and roll into bite sized portions, then place the ball into the container.
Once all the bites are rolled, put them in the fridge for about an hour. I like to cheat and throw them in the freezer for 10 minutes so I can eat them right away!
These are great for on the go breakfast, a midday snack, or a pre-/during- workout boost. Enjoy!
