 Healthy No Bake Blackberry Energy Bites Vegan Gluten free

Over the weekend, me and my boyfriend were craving something really sweet, but I also felt like eating something healthy. Given that it’s blackberry season, I had a base ingredient to work with. I knew that I wanted to make something that involved peanut butter. After thinking about it for a few minutes, I decided I was going to make energy bites. It’s summer, so operating the oven is horrible and these treats don’t require more than 10 minutes of “cooking”. They are the perfect healthy summer snacks.

If you don’t have oat flour at hand, you can use regular oats, just make sure, you make them into a flour consistency with a blender before using, otherwise the balls will be hard to chew.

After I was done making the balls, I popped them into the fridge for 30 minutes. That time and temperature allowed them to “harden up” a bit, before eating.
