No bake energy bites

Today’s adapted recipe is for no-bake energy bites. All measurements approximate!

  

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder
  • 1 cup crispy rice cereal
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil

Mix the first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. 

  
Combine the last three ingredients in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave for a minute or so to melt, and stir to combine them. Add the softened ingredients to the  dry ingredients and stir until all ingredients are well blended.

Press the mixture into a pan lined with parchment paper, cover, and refrigerate to set. 

  
After they’ve set, cut into cubes and store in the refrigerator until you’ve eaten them all… Which won’t take long. 

  

Note: I cut them up into 30 pieces. MyFitnessPal says they’re 125 calories each.
