Protein BitesPosted: August 22, 2012
No bake protein bites
The best part about this recipe is that there is no baking involved. These are extremely easy! They are packed with a ton all natural protein, which makes a great on the go snack.
1 Cup rolled oats
1/2 Cup whey protein powder
1/4 Cup raw honey
1/2 agave syrup
2 Tablespoons Chia seed
2 Tablespoons flax-seed
1/2 Cup almond butter
1/2 Cup “Better N’ Peanut Butter” peanut butter ( I use this because it is lower in calories and has a sweeter taste to it, however you could use a full cup of almond butter)
1/3 Cup unsweetened shredded coconut
A splash of coconut milk ( just enough to moisten)
Optional: When available I will often add dried fruit such as raisins, or dates .For a richer more indulgent taste I will add in some carob chips.
Makes about 30 bites.
Directions: Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Form into balls using your hands or an ice cream scoop. Place balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil, freeze for 30 mins or store in fridge.
Tip: “Better N’ Peanut Butter” peanut butter can be found at trader Joes.
