No Bake Energy Crumble

I absolutely LOVE finding things that have a nutritional punch but taste amazing! So that is what I've been up to lately. I should post these kinds of things more often!

So I found this one on pintrest, but it is supposed to be bite sized balls. Mine however, did not form into balls, so instead of adding more peanut butter or honey to hold them, I just left it as a crumble and went with it. It was a yummy afternoon pick me up!

The best part about no-bake stuff like this is that if you don't have an ingredient or don't like something, it is easy to switch it out for something else. In this case I didn't have coconut on hand, so I used some Cheerios (which is probably why it didn't roll into a ball). One could also add nuts, dried fruits, different flavors of chocolate chips, etc.

1 C oats
1 C toasted coconut
1/2 C chocolate chips
1/2 C peanut butter
1/2 C ground flax seed
1/3 C honey
1 tsp vanilla

Stir everything together. Chill for 1/2 hour, then roll into balls. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
