Under the food category of this blog, you can expect to find healthy recipes, local restaurant reviews, and maybe even happy hour specials. I may be petite, but don’t be fooled… I loooove food! Luckily, I don’t really have a sweet tooth, so I’d rather stuff my face with food and skip dessert.

But for all you sweet lovers, here’s a healthy snack alternative… Try this simple recipe below made with all natural ingredients.

Yields:  20-25 No-bake Energy Bites


  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup of honey
  • 1/2 cup of ground flax seed
  • 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
    (optional extras: 1/2 cup of ground coconut, pecans, or raisins)


  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. (I accidentally purchased whole flax seeds, so I had to put them through the food processor first.)
  2. Grab a handful of the mixture and begin shaping them into balls. (Spraying cooking spray into your palms may help during the ball-making process.)
  3. Refrigerate or freeze for about an hour and you’re done!
  4. Enjoy!
