Meatless Monday - Energy Bites

Here's a healthy tasty treat I made with my 10 year old.  These two bite treats are easy and quick to make plus gluten-free and vegan-friendly (does include honey).  Recipe adapted from Greatist.com.


In a bowl combine:
4 cups gluten-free rolled oats
1.5 cups raw sunflower seeds
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup banana chips, crumbled
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans



Add and mix until well combined:
1 cup sunflower seed butter (can also use peanut or almond butter!)
1/2 cup honey or agave nectar

Refrigerate mixture until relatively firm (about 20 minutes).

Using a teaspoon to measure, roll mixture into balls. Enjoy!

Feel free to try different substitutions for dried fruits, nuts, nut butters.  Also you can roll the finished bites in cocoa powder, cinnamon, or toasted coconut.
