what's cooking: No bake energy bites

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and it looked so easy and simple and delicious. I also choose to make it because I had most of the ingredients on hand and didn't feel like turning on the oven.

Adapted from Gimme some Oven

1 Cup toasted Coconut
1 Cup oats - Used Quaker breakfast oats with flax seed and wheat germ in it
3/4 Cup Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Honey
1/4 Graham cracker crumbs (instead of ground flax seed - which I was missing)
1 Tsp Vanilla

Mix it all together, then put it all in the fridge for about 20 minutes or so. Then you roll it into balls and keep them in the fridge for up to a week.

*I should have put a bit more honey in it as they were a little on the dry side when it came to forming balls out of the mix*

I'm going to make one with some crasins and seseme seeds next, something more like a trail mix energy bite. The recipe is very easy to change to suite your needs.
