Recipe: Peanut butter cacao nib no bake energy balls

IMG_5602Hello non baking! I enjoy you very alot!
These balls*snigger* are a great breakfast cheat. Packed with protein and energy giving food stuffs to last you at least until elevenses, when you could have some lemon blondies, right? xD
I’ve made these before, but with real chocolate chips! I made these healthier by using cacao nibs(like chocolate chips, only healthier…no sugar, non refined..yadda yadda yadda..) cacao nibs have a slight texture of bark(nice!) and taste more fruity/woody than normal chocolate chips, but still quite nice! An okay replacement for chocolate chips anyhow! I bought them from Amazon. They’re not cheap unfortunately!

These healthy bites of energy take:

1/3 a cup of honey(it’s all needed-helps with binding!)
1/2 a cup of peanut or almond butter(I use meridian-see below)
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2/3 a cup of shredded coconut
1/2 a cup of flaxseed(I used some with goji berries-ooh fancy! – see below!)
1 cup of plain old oats
5 tbsp of cacao nibs(could have used 4)

Mix mix mix…
