Healthier Energy Bites

Why Reese’s Easter PB eggs do you have to be so temptingly delicious?! The holiday edition of Reese’s peanut butter cups tastes even more awesome than the already awesome regular Pb cups.

So while I really want to be eating Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs, instead I will be good and snack on some of this healthier option of an Energy bite.

I find that just one or two of these little bites will be just enough to fill me up and stave off unwanted afternoon snacking.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cup oats  (dry)
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter (I love crunchy, but smooth is fine of course too.)
  • 1/4 cup almond butter (if you don’t have any almond butter just use 1/2 cup of peanut butter.)
  • 4 Tbsp honey (use local raw honey for an added immune boost.)
  • 4 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extractAdditional ingredients for added flavor and nutrition…
  • 1 Tbs chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 scoop vanilla flavored protein powder of your choice.

DIRECTIONS

  1. Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl using a spatula
  2. Place mixing bowl in refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour
  3. Roll mixture into equal size bites (I use my 2 tsp scoop to make them all uniform)
  4. Store in refrigerator until ready to eat
