No-Bake Energy Bites

I got this idea from a blog called Smashed Peas and Carrots via Pinterest. I changed it a little. These are oh-my-gosh-these-can't-be-healthy good!
Ingredients:
1 cup oatmeal (quick cook)
1/2 cup peanut butter or other nut butter(I used raw almond butter and sunbutter mixed together)
1/3 cup honey
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (you can get these without hfcs, but be prepared to pay twice as much)
1/4 cup pecan pieces -chopped to medium fineness
Mix everything in a bowl and roll into small balls
Store in covered container (in fridge for longer shelf-life)
