We all have those days when we are just sapped of energy. Sometimes we go crazy looking for a good pick me up. Some would grab coffee, some would grab sweets, but caffeine and sugar alone can only get you so far, not to mention, they aren’t actually very good for you. But what if I told you that you could get that much needed boost by eating a simple cookie? What if I told you that this cookie was made with various ingredients that, while not necessarily healthy, are still much better for you than the competition? What if I told you that this cookie was a simple, easy to make and best of all, no-bake recipe that you could throw together in the comfort of your own home? If those questions intrigue you, I think you need to check out this recipe I found over at Gimme Some Oven.

Here is what you’ll need to make No-Bake Peanut Butter Energy Bites:

chocolate chips
toasted coconut
vanilla extract
peanut butter
old fashioned oats
honey (or agave nectar)
freshly ground flax seed
chia seeds (optional)

If five year old me knew that one day, I could eat cookies to stay energized enough to get through the day, she would probably give me the BIGGEST hug! Cookies are certainly one thing you NEVER outgrow! For the full instructions, head over to Gimme Some Oven now. Enjoy!
