Ingredients
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • ½ cup shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened)
  • ½ cup carob chips (Chocolate works too.)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl.

  4. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or eat immediately.
  5. Makes about 16 energy bites.
