Mrs Maker’s Energy Balls (Gluten Free)

In the Maker house, our kids are always looking for something quick and easy to grab on the go. I started making these energy bites. The best part is they are easy to adapt to your own creation.
Prep Time: 20 minutes

         Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Honey
  • 1/2 cup Peanut butter, creamy
  • 1 cup Oats, old-fashioned raw (we use Quaker Oats GF)
    Parts you can play around with
    6 tbsp (Chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, M&Ms, carrots, dried raisins, dried cranberries)
    Nuts & Seeds (Sunflower, Pumpkin, Almond Slices)
    2/3 cup Coconut, toasted sweetened- optional
    Instructions
    1. In a mixing bowl, stir together peanut butter, honey and vanilla extract. Add remaining ingredients and stir until evenly coated. Transfer mixture to refrigerator or freezer and chill until set (I actually cheated here and shaped mine before chilling with damp hands but I think chilling would make it easier to shape them).
    2. Remove from refrigerator and shape into 1-inch balls. Store in refrigerator in an airtight container.
 Let me know if you have made a version of these, we are always looking for new recipes.
