Energy Bites Recipe

A guest post by Mia’s Domain–a refreshing food blog from a woman who says she simply enjoys cooking.

Energy Bites:
1 cup Oats
1 cup milled Flax seeds
1/4 cup whole flax seeds
1 cup roasted wheat germ
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup bitter sweet chocolate chips
1 cup dried apricots, chopped
1 cup dried pomegranate
1 cup raw honey or agave
2 cups crunchy peanut butter
2 large ripe bananas
Mash bananas. Combine all the ingredients, mixing well to combine. Add to a greased 8″ by 8″ square dish. Push down hard on the mixture to help it bind together. Set aside while you make the ganache (optional).

1/2 cup bitter sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup cream
Bring heavy cream in a saucepan on medium heat to simmer (don’t boil). Pour over chocolate chunks and whisk until chocolate mixture is smooth and shiny. Pour over the top of the energy bar and refrigerate for up to 4 hours before cutting into square bite size pieces.
Store in a airtight container in the refrigerator.
