No-Bake Energy Bites

I’m one of those people who get bored easily and when I get bored, I head for the kitchen to find something to snack on. It never fails, I gravitate towards snacks like Gold Fish or Teddy Grahams and eat about 20 at a time. It’s embarrassing, really. I wanted to find something I could make that would fill me up faster and would be a little better for me. These no-bake bites are packed full of protein and fiber with the added rolled oats and flaxseed. Plus, the mini-chocolate morsels give a burst of energy I need throughout the day. These are great for a grab ‘n go breakfast or for an after lunch dessert.
