No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites

No bake chocolate chip "cookies" for snack, yum! These energy bites are so easy to make. Just mix quick oats with your mixins' of choice and bind with nut/seed butter. We used chocolate chips, dried cherries, coconut flakes, ground flaxseed, chia seeds and peanut butter. But you can change it up however you like. If you want them to be completely added-sugar free, swap the chocolate chips with cacao nibs and use naturally sweet fruit, like raisins or diced up dates. We usually make the dough together and eat it straight from the bowl.
It's that good!

Ingredients straight from the pantry - doesn't get much easier than that :)
'Come on and stir it up...little darling, stir it up...' Do you like Bob Marley? Silly question. 
So good! Sometimes we flatten them so they are more cookie-like.

No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites

1/2 cup quick oats
1/4 cup coconut chips
1/4 cup dried cherries
1/8 cup vegan chocolate chips
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon flaxseed
1/3 cup natural peanut butter*

1.  In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients except the peanut butter.

2.  Add in the peanut butter. It may take several minutes of stirring to bind the ingredients together. If it is too wet, add more oats. If it is too dry, add more peanut butter.

3. Take a heaping tablespoon of dough at a time, pressing and rolling them into balls with your hands. You can keep them in this shape or press them down so they are flat, if preferred.

*you can swap the peanut butter with any nut or seed butter you prefer but may have to slightly increase or decrease the amount depending on the thickness of the butter you use.
