First, toast the coconut and set aside to cool.
In a medium bowl combine the peanut butter, corn syrup (or honey) and vanilla extract.
Add the remaining ingredients and thoroughly mix together. Use a small cookie scooper to shape into small balls. Cover, chill approximately 15 minutes and serve.
Now, this mixture is so yummy you could eat it right out of the bowl. But, you only have to wait a few more minutes and you’ll be enjoying these tasty little energy bites!
