These simple clean little peanut butter coconut bites are easy to make and great for a healthy snack for the whole family. Toss them in the fridge and in 30min they are good to go. Ive always had people tell me they love these. I love anything apricot and with the added apricot in this recipe it really brings out an sweet delicious flavor in these bites.
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup apricot (chopped)
1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon flax seed (optional)
1 tablespoon wheat germ (optional)
1/2 scoop peanut butter or vanilla Isagenix protein
Preparation of Peanut Butter Energy Balls – Easy No-Bake:
Mix peanut butter, oatmeal, apricots, honey, flax seed, wheat germ and protein powder Roll mixture into balls, then lay out finely shredded coconut flakes and roll the balls in this mixture, you can also use graham crackers. The flax and wheat germ provide you with healthy fats and fiber.
Once finished just let the balls sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
You can make some substitutions with the ingredients, such as, the apricots for chocolate chips or chopped nuts. There are many possibilities, just be careful and keep the ratios consistent. I used natural peanut butter which caused my mixture to be more dry. If this is the case add a little milk; about 1/2 tablespoon at a time. Or even better use Almond Butter!!
