peanut butter choc energy bites

22nd July 2013


Running on the forest trails is where I go to return to my centre.



Even though I return to the same trails, I always discover something new that brings me back to my core.


A renewed spirit and a cleansing of soul.

And after these soul-cleansing runs, a re-fuelling is much needed.  Something clean, fulfilling and of course, delicious.

These Energy Bites meet all requirements. Added bonuses are no cooking, quick and easy to make.

Many substitutions could be used with this recipe. All you need are some sort of nut/s, nut butter, dried fruit, & chocolate (optional).

Recipe inspired from ‘Gimme Some Oven’ 

peanut butter choc energy bites

Makes about 20 – 25 small balls

1 cup wholegrain oats (or mix of quinoa flakes & oats)

2/3 cup toasted shredded/flaked coconut

1/2 cup 100% peanut butter

1/2 ground flaxseed (linseeds)

1/2 cup dark chocolate. chopped roughly in small bits (optional)

1/3 cup maple syrup

1 tab chia seeds

1 tspn vanilla extract

Add all ingredients to a medium-sized bowl and mix until thoroughly combined (you may need to use your hands). Place bowl in fridge for at least half an hour (easier to roll).

When chilled, roll mixture into balls of whatever size you like (I used about a teaspoonful).

Store in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to 1 week (if they last that long)
