Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 20 energy bites
In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients (oats, flax seed, cocoa, cinnamon, salt) plus the chocolate chips and raisins.
In another, microwave-safe bowl, combine the peanut butter and honey. Microwave on high for 30 seconds, until honey is melted and peanut butter is softened.
Add the olive oil and vanilla to the honey-peanut butter mixture, and stir everything together.
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix using a fork, or better yet, your hands.
When everything is very thoroughly combined (this will take a few minutes), use a teaspoon or a small ice cream scoop to form 1.5" round balls of dough. In the palm of your hand, pack them together very tightly so that they don't fall apart when you put them down.
Store in an airtight container for a week to 10 days.
- You may need to add additional oil if your peanut butter is from the bottom of the jar and is too dry to stir into a paste that will keep the balls together.
- Makes 18-20 1.25" round energy bites.
