Energy Bites (gluten-free)
Makes 15-20
Ingredients

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey or agave
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup shredded coconut
1 cup gluten-free oats
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Combine peanut butter, honey, and vanilla in a medium size bowl.  I find it easier to combine if I melt the peanut butter and honey first.  Add shredded coconut and gluten-free oats to mixture.  Stir to combine.  I set mine in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes before adding in the chocolate chips; otherwise, the chocolate chips melt if you chose to melt your peanut butter and honey.  Once cooled, add chocolate chips and roll into 1 inch size balls.

These are the perfect snack to fuel you for a workout or get you through the day!  I often eat these before a race.  They freeze great so I can keep myself stocked up for a couple of weeks!
