These no-bake bites are so easy and perfect for on-the-go snacks, a pre-workout fuel, or a post-workout protein source. I sometimes have them at night to fix my predominant sweet tooth. I'll usually sprinkle half with espresso powder for a quick pick-me-up if I have them in the morning (as the caffeine will keep me up). For the peanut butter, make sure the ONLY ingredient in your peanut butter is peanuts! It's that simple.

-1 c old fashioned oats
-1/2 c peanut butter
-1/3 c ground flax seed
-1/3 c raw honey
-1 tbsp vanilla extract
-dash cinnamon
-1/3 c dark chocolate chips
-espresso powder (optional)

-Put oats, flax, vanilla, and cinnamon in a bowl. Melt honey and peanut butter in microwave for 10-15 sec. Stir all ingredients into bowl and mix thoroughly. Let cool for a couple of minutes before adding in chocolate chips (so they don't melt). Place mixture in fridge for 20 minutes. Roll into 1-inch balls and keep in refrigerator. Yields about 20 bites.
