i don't know about your household, but we sometimes have...issues getting going in the morning. and until that first sip of coffee gets into my system, i'm kind of a slow-moving disaster. i love breakfast and usually cannot go without it, but sometimes i don't have time to make something. so imagine my delight when i found these little guys! they have sweet and hearty flavors, and the energy they give you comes from the flax seed. (don't forget to grind up your flax seed to unlock their secret powers!) i'm not sure what they're actually called, but we call them energy bites. AND THEY'RE SO DELISH. super simple to make, and they are the perfect small breakfast when you're just not going to have the time to make something. and let's be real; we're all busy people.
1 cup of rolled oats 1/2 cup of flax seed (the ingredient my husband was most scared of.) 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (the ingredient that convinced him it was all going to be okay.) 1/2 cup of honey 1/2 cup of almond butter 1 tsp of vanilla
mix everything together in a medium bowl, and then roll it into 2-inch balls. store in an air-tight container and grab whenever you need a quick snack.
