Peanut Butter Energy Bites

A few days ago I posted a new recipe for Energy Bites. I hope by now you have already tried them, loved them, and reveled in their deliciousness! If by some reason you are already bored of the original flavor, I have concocted a new and completely unique flavor! This way you can continue to enjoy the simplicity and convenience of Energy Bites but give your taste buds a wake up!

I don't know how many of you out there are obsessed with peanut butter... As hard as it is for me to believe it, I realize there are a few people out there that aren't as completely heads over heals for peanut butter like I am... in fact.. there may even be some of you that don't like peanut butter (I shudder at this thought!) For those of you who love it like myself-you'll love this new recipe... For those of you who don't (really, could there be anyone who doesn't like peanut butter?!) just bear with me during my peanut butter recipes!

These little spheres of peanutty goodness are filled with nutrition in each bite! Healthy fats, some fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, etc. etc.... these guys have it all!

-3/4 cup peanut butter
-3/4 cup oats
-1/4 cup nuts (any kind will work-use peanuts for an even more distinct peanut butter taste!)
-1/4 cup shredded coconut
-1/4 cup all bran cereal (i.e. bran flakes)
-1/4 cup wheat germ
-1/4 cup ground flax seed (you have to grind flax seed to ensure your body will absorb its nutrition)
-7-8 dried prunes (or any dried fruit will suffice)

Add all ingredients to a food processor and process until smooth

The mixture should resemble something like this...

Roll into desired shapes/sizes

I got about 24 good sized bites
