Very nice 👍
Thank you, Joanne!
Fast, easy, and very tasty! All ingredients are in your kitchen. They were very delicious, I love this recipe definitely recommend you try. They were fabulous I would definitely make these again. Even my 13 year old can make these and she loved them. My whole family enjoyed these lovely treats.
Thanks for sharing! Those look mighty tasty!
I made these and substituted hemp hearts for the coconut and they turned out perfectly! My 10 month old and 2 year old love them, and I have to hide them in the veggie drawer so my husband doesn’t eat them all before the kids do!
I also gave the oats a quick blast in the food processor because they were very large flake and I thought my 10 month old might have a little trouble with them. They softened up nicely in the fridge, so next time I won’t even bother with the extra step.
Fantastic recipe! Will be making many times!
Thanks for sharing, Cora! Great modifications!
Made the recipe and they’re pretty soft and sticky still. Still taste good. Going to try and freeze to see if they harden a bit
Thanks for sharing, Shelby!
I can’t wait to make these!! Are the coconut and flax seed absolutely necessary or can I leave them out? Or substitute with something else? Thank you!
You could try sunflower oil!
Are the nutrition facts per energy bite or per batch?
I did some tweaking…it’s per ball now. Enjoy!
Thank you!! Can’t wait to try them!
Hope you love them!
