No Bake Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate Energy Bites

This is my new favorite snack to throw together!  Thanks to our client Kelly Hall in Las Vegas for sharing the recipe and making some for me while I was teaching a certification course at The Green Room Pilates in Henderson, NV.  The best part about these (besides their deliciousness) is how easy it is to customize them to fit your preferences and needs.  I have made them using almond butter or peanut butter, agave syrup, dark chocolate chips,  pumpkin flax cereal, and I love to throw in a raw fiber mix from 'The Garden of Life' to get some extra fiber.  You can add protein powder, dried fruits, coconut, carob powder or cocoa powder, and anything else you can think of!  Just store them in the fridge and grab one or a few on the go.  So easy!

Yields about 40 pieces, depending on how big you make them

2 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup brown rice cereal 
1 1/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup flax seed meal 
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup honey
1 tablespoon dark chocolate powder, optional, I did not use this on this batch but I will on the next

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate for about 1 hour. Roll into balls about 1-2 inch in diameter. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1-2 weeks.
