Cinnamon Sunflower Seed Energy Bites


You all might be keen enough to deduce how slightly addicted I am to these little energy bites. I've made a batch a week since I first found the original recipe and each time I've tweaked it into something new. I love the versatility of the recipe, not to mention the amazing flavor, and the packed nutrients. If you haven't tried these yet, you must!

Cinnamon Sunflower Seed Energy Bites
recipe adapted from Smashed Peas and Carrots
Makes 24 bites

1-1/2 cup oats
1 cup flaked coconut
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup ground flax seed

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix together until thoroughly combined. Refrigerate for 15-30 minutes then roll into walnut-sized balls. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to a week.
