6 Ingredient Christmas Energy Bites
This healthy no bake recipe is easy and quick to prepare. Oatmeal, flaxseed (or hemp seeds), peanut butter, M&Ms, honey, and "snow" aka finely shredded coconut make up these homemade gluten free goodies. Make these raw bites for kids and adults alike. Think monster cookie, but with 5 simple whole food ingredients!
Servings: 25 bites
- 2 cups old fashioned oatmeal
- 1/2 cup "snow" finely shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1/2 cup Christmas M&Ms, coursly chopped or crushed
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds or ground flax seed
- 1/2 cup peanut or nut butter
- 1/2 cup honey
Mix all ingredients in bowl. Scoop out 1 Tbsp at a time. Press and roll into balls.
Chill in the fridge or freezer until ready to eat! Store bites in sealed container.
**If your mixture is very sticky, add more oats or chill mixture in the fridge for 30 minutes and then roll into bites.
I have used both regular green and red holiday M&Ms and Chocolate Holiday Mint M&Ms in this recipe. Both flavors tasted amazing!
