No Bake Almond Oat Energy Bites

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Zenmaria

Got this recipe from Vegetarian Times. I didn't have Barley Malt Syrup - I used honey only. My boys LOVED them (thank goodness!). I bought the pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds in bulk so it made this recipe less expensive than buying the seeds packaged. I'm sure the almond butter could be replaced with peanut butter. Enjoy! Note: I have since made these many times and boy are they yummy! I did make them with Barley Malt and it adds a great flavor.

Lovely! Crunchy, squishy and sweet. I will add more raisins and maybe some other spices next time (nutmeg? cloves? more cinnamon? I can't get enough flavor in my food!) A wonderfully earthy snack. ~ For PAC 2008
