18 energy bites

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 11 to 13 dates, pitted
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, add the oats, dates, peanut butter, and maple syrup. Blend until you have a crumbly looking dough.
  2. Next, add the chocolate chips, and pulse for about 5 seconds until just combined.
  3. Form bite-sized balls out of the dough. Enjoy right away, or store in an airtight container (I like using Pyrex storage containers) in the fridge.
