No-Bake Energy Bites

August 2, 2013 by momadvice

No-bake energy bites are a fun snack to have on hand when you are craving a treat with a little sweetness. My recipe for these includes wheat germ and ground flax seed, both which can be healthy additions to your bowls of oatmeal, mixed into your smoothies, or even added as a salad topper for your week. The best part is that it doesn’t require an oven or mixer, making these an easy treat to make…and to eat! Did I mention it tastes an awful lot like cookie dough too? Yum!
