Granola Energy bites

Posted by Lisa

This is a recipe inspired by a friends recipe. 
 If you are looking for something "snackish", 
this has no added sugar (except a handful of choc chips 
which you could leave out) and has great crunch and flavor!

Ingredient List:
2 cup quick oatmeal
1/2 c unsweetened flaked coconut
1/2 c slivered almonds

1/2 c honey
3/4 c peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c choc chips
1/2 chopped dates

1- I spread the oatmeal, coconut, and almonds on a cookie sheet and cooked until lightly toasted.  (you have to watch the coconut closely)  

2- warm the honey and pour into large bowl.  Add the peanut butter and stir to combine totally.  Add in the vanilla, dates and choc chips.  Stir together.

3- Once dry ingredients are toasted, stir into the honey mixture until combined.

4- Using scoop or spoon, place small mounds onto parchment paper and let set.  

5- Eat and enjoy!  
***you can mix in your favorites...raisins, peanuts, dried fruit, flax seed...***
