Protein Bites

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.

Ingredients:

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.
