Ingredients

  • 1

    cup old fashioned rolled oats

  • 1/2

    cup ground flaxseed (optional)

  • 1/4

    cup cocoa powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4

    cup dark chocolate chips

  • 1/4

    cup raisins

  • 3/4

    cup natural (unsweetened) crunchy peanut butter

  • 1/4

    cup honey

  • 2

    Tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2

    tsp vanilla extract

Directions

In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients (oats, flaxseed, cocoa, cinnamon) plus the chocolate chips and raisins. In another, microwave-safe bowl, combine the peanut butter and honey. Microwave on high for 30 seconds, until honey is melted and peanut butter is softened. Add the olive oil and vanilla and stir everything together. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix using a fork, or better yet, your hands. When everything is very thoroughly combined (this will take a few minutes), use a teaspoon or a small ice cream scoop to form 1.5" round balls of dough. In the palm of your hand, pack them together very tightly so that they don't fall apart when you put them down. Store in an airtight container for a week to 10 days. Makes 18-20 1.25" round energy bites.
