Has everyone has seen those Snickers commercials where people change characters when they are hungry? Sooo, apparently I tend to get hangry in as well. These energy bites have saved me many times. I usually throw together a couple batches of these guys and store them in the freezer for backup.

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (or vegan chocolate chips)
1/3 cup honey or agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
