I am a snacker. A hardcore snacker. I didn't realize how much my family snacked until I got married and was shocked at how little my husband's family snacked...as in not at all! I have turned my boys into snackers as well and they eat all day long. Seriously, we are like cows and graze all dang day! I go through phases of what snacks we like to eat, and right now these are one of our favorites. I try to have paleo muffins or pancakes stashed in my fridge at all times, and then one kind of energy bite like these. They are easy to make and keep in your fridge for a few weeks. Also make great on the go or road trip snacks.
Chocolate Oat Snack Bites
1 cup oats (old fashioned and quick cooking both work well)
1/4 cup nut butter (I use almond or peanut butter-no added ingredients just the nuts)
1/4 cup + 1 TBS honey
2 TBS cocoa powder
2 TBS hemp hearts or ground flax or chia seeds
2 TBS unsweetened shredded coconut
Mix all ingredients together in standing mixer until well combined. Roll into balls and store in fridge. The batter should stick together when rolled into a ball. If it doesn't stick together for you add more honey or nut butter until it holds its shape.
