May I Suggest

I made a new discovery via my dear cousin Hannah's pinterest account.  (I am beginning to think that anything wonderful in this world somehow involves Hannah.

They are called Energy Bites.  I make them on the weekend and they never make it to the next weekend.  Last weekend I even made a double batch.  On Tuesday, Adam said, "Who has been eating all of these?"  Mark and I looked at each other, a little sheepish.

But they're good.  And they seem all healthy and virtuous.

And they're really good.

I think I found the original source of the recipe here.

I am grateful.

Here's the recipe:

Smashed Peas and Carrots: No-Bake Energy Bites {Recipe}
http://smashedpeasandcarrots.blogspot.com/2011/08/no-bake-energy-bites-recipe.html August 23, 2011
No-Bake Energy Bites
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/3 cup honey
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
Mix everything above in a medium 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.

I toast the coconut first which I like.  Also I have used peanut butter chips and I think I'll make them with craisins next time.  Of course you can't go wrong with chocolate chips.
