We are working closely with many families in our community to help them overcome picky eaters. We understand how frustrating it can be when children refuse to try new things, or make that I don’t like it face before it even touches their lips. As a parent, I know how upsetting it becomes when your kids do NOT getting the proper nutrition. With busy schedules and picky eaters, it feels like there is nothing you can do about it. Well, now you can make a difference.

NO BAKE ENERGY BITES RECIPE
1 Cup Rolled Oats
1 Cup Coconut Flakes (replace with sesame seeds to make nut free)
½ Cup Ground Flaxseed
½ Cup Mini Chocolate Chips
½ Cup Raisins
½ Cup Peanut butter (substitute sun butter for nut allergies)*
⅓ Cup Raw honey
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 cup coconut
1. In a medium bowl, add oatmeal, coconut flakes, flax seed, mini chocolate chips and raisins.
2. In a small bowl, whisk peanut butter, honey and vanilla.
3. Pour wet mix into dry bowl until thoroughly incorporated. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls and enjoy! Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
The peanut or non-nut butter you use will make a difference in how well these “stick” together. If they are not “holding” together well, add 1-2 tablespoons more peanut/non nut butter.
