Need that extra boost of energy?

Energy bites may be the trick for you!

Mindy Quesenberry from MyFitnessQuest is stopping by the FOX43 Kitchen with Marcella Cucchiara, a nutrition coach, to prepare energy bites.

The recipe for the bites can be found below:

Ingredients:

1 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1/2 cup ground flax seed

1/2 cup crunchy organic peanut butter or almond butter

1/3 cup raw honey

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Combine all ingredients together into bowl.  Refrigerate mixture for about 20 minutes so it is easier to work with. Then, form mixture into balls using your hands.  Arrange bites on a baking sheet and refrigerate to set, about one hour.  These are also great frozen. I always have some on hand in my freezer ready to go.  Enjoy!
