raw rolled oats
shredded coconut, toasted
dried currants or raisins
In a medium bowl, stir together the honey and the almond butter with a sturdy wooden spoon until creamy.
In no particular order, dump in the oats, coconut, sesame seeds, wheat germ, chia seeds, currents and nuts.
Roll up your sleeves and get in there with your hands to mix everything together into a nice sticky ball.
Send the 'dough' to the refrigerator for 15 minutes to firm up.
Divide and roll the mixture into 1-inch power bites; try not to eat them all in the process.
Store in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to seven days. Alternately, freeze the power bites for up to one month.
Toasting the coconut, sesame seeds and even the wheat germ adds a wonderful flavour to the power bites and is well worth the extra effort.
