No Bake Energy Bites – a Recipe

We’re into our second week of school and Greysen is pretty much eating through our pantry as soon as he gets home. Which is great! I love it. He is a pretty picky eater and will go without if he really hates whatever is in front of him. I have made these bites before when he was playing soccer and they’re just quick, easy and super delicious. I trick them into thinking they’re eating cookie dough. Oops.

Recipe adapted from Pinterest (of course)-

2/3 cup coconut flakes

Let mixture sit in fridge for 30 minutes, then roll into small balls. I use a melon scooper and then roll in my hands to make them round. Next, stick bites onto parchment paper and put back into fridge for another half hour. And if you’re anything like me, you can eat as you make.

Store in sealed container. Try not to eat them all in one day ;)
