Here we go again with the oats.
I just can't help myself people.
The fact this recipe is no bake and makes a plethora of coconut banana energy bites also doesn't help matters much.
But, what can I say, my baby wants oats so I'm going to feed him all the oats!
A while back when Pinterest first started blowing up, there was this recipe for a no bake energy bite that people went bananas over.
I, myself, never actually made the recipe. I always wanted to, but, meh, I just never got around to it. I also had my own recipes to create. Then when I got knocked up, I started craving crazy amounts of granola bars and oats, and those images of tiny balls of energy kept bowling over in my mind.
My appetite has also gotten practically insatiable as of late, and I have become "that girl" at the office. You know the one, right? The girl with the incredible stash of snacks and goodies squirreled away in her desk drawer?
Yeah. That would be me.
As of right now, I have a box of 100 calorie packs of both cocoa & vanilla roasted almonds, a box of Blueberry Crisp Clif bars, a box of mini bags of trail mix (with M & Ms in them), a bag of organic Ginger candy, as well as a box of Banana Harvest granola bars. I just can't help it, y'all! I have to eat, like, every 2-3 hours or I will get incredibly nauseated and will feel like crappola for the rest of the day.
Can I please also just tell y'all that those banana granola bars are incredible, and the moment I first bit into one I knew I had to recreate them. But, since I had just posted a granola bar recipe a few weeks ago, I wanted to make something a little bit different.
Today's recipe is more of a variation of the no bake energy bite recipe that has been all over the interwebz lately. I'm not exactly sure who to give the original credit to, but I will say that I adapted my recipe from Ali at Gimme Some Oven.
The end result was exactly what I was looking for. Tiny, tropical morsels of energy bite euphoria that will keep me satisfied all afternoon.
