Cranberry Almond Energy Bites Recipe
I’ve been having a breakfast dilemma: Its been too cold for smoothies & my favorite greek yogurt stopped being sold in the states. In my searching for a quick and easy breakfast option, I came across these on pinterest and they are perfect! They were quick and easy to make and store easily in the fridge. I made a batch and took them to work and have been eating 2 for breakfast all week! They are a little crunchy, from toasting the oats, almonds and coconut, which I love. A great healthy breakfast for on the go!
- 1 c. oatmeal
- 1/3 c. almonds, chopped
- 1/3 c. sweetened shredded coconut
- 1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
- ½ c. almond butter (can use peanut butter)
- ¼ c. honey
- 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
- 1/3 c. dried cranberries
- Bake oatmeal, almonds and coconut for 8-10 minutes at 350°, stirring after 5 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool.
- In a medium bowl microwave the nut butter for 20-30 seconds until runny, add the baked mix along with flaxseed, honey, chia seeds and cranberries to the bowl. Form into 1.5" balls and refrigerate. Store in an airtight container refrigerated for up to one week or freezer for 3 months.
