All Natural Energy Bites
Makes 16 walnut-sized bites

Ingredients:
1/2 C. nut butter { almond butter, peanut butter or any kind of nut butter}
1/3 C. honey
1 C. old fashioned rolled oats
1 C. shredded unsweetened coconut {you can substitute with any nuts and/or seeds}
1-2 tsp. vanilla
1-2 tsp. spices (optional- but you could add cinnamon or pumpkin spice)
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 C. of other add-ins such as nuts, seeds, dried fruit, dark chocolate chips etc.

Directions:
1. In a large bowl, mix the nut butter, honey, vanilla and salt if desired.
2.  Add the remaining ingredients.  Mix well.
3.  Place in the fridge for 15 or so minutes.
4. Remove from the fridge and begin to roll the dough into walnut (or smaller) size bites.
5.  Place in an airtight container in the fridge or in the freezer {I prefer the freezer!) for a quick and delicious snack!

* Here's the thing to remember:  if you get the base goodness correct (the nut butter, honey, vanilla, sea salt), you really can't go wrong.  Just don't get too carried away with dry ingredients or they wont stick together.
