Satisfying Snack: No Bake Energy Bites

Here’s an easy to make and even easier to eat protein packed post-workout snack or for that needed extra energy boostbites3

They’re small in size but big on flavour and loaded with goodness. 

Ingredients:

1 cup large-flake rolled oats

3/4 cup finely chopped pitted dates

1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter (or smooth peanut butter and add 1/2 cup of chopped nuts like cashews)

3 Tbsp. ground flaxseeds or ancient grains (or combo)

1/2 cup plain or toasted coconut (spread coconut on a parchment lined baking sheet in 300F oven until slightly brown & fragrant) – Optional

Handful of dark chocolate chips – Optional

*I added 1/4 cup chopped dry roasted pecans to crunchy peanut butter  and a little Protein Powder.

1/4 Cup liquid honey

MIX all together in a large bowl. CHILL until firm, about 30 minutes.

ROLL into balls (about 2 Tbsp. per ball)bites1

The taste is similar to that of a yummy cookie and you know how much I love cookies!
