No Bake Energy Bites~ By Lydia

1c. Oatmeal 
1/2 c. Peanut Butter
1/3 c. Honey 
1 c.Sweetened Coconut Flakes
1/2 c. Dried Cranberries 
1/2 c. Ground Flax seed
1tsp. Vanilla

Mix all ingredients and chill for 30 minutes.  Roll into balls and store in the fridge. 

Variations:  I used an extra cup of oatmeal instead of the coconut flakes and 1/4 c whole flaxseeds instead of ground because I love the "crunch!"  The original recipe uses chocolate chips instead of dried cranberries, but I didn't have any chocolate chips on hand and the cranberries are delicious!

These are a perfect sweet snack before or after a run.  I also like to grab one early in the morning before milking to help me wake up!
