Energy Bites

Hey there peeps!

While I’ve been mixin’ it up and teaching computer training I have had the opportunity to meet some new friends!  What a joy to meet women that are smart, funny, hard-working, and easy to be with!  Huge blessing.  Anyway, one of these great gals, Sherry, brought these little nuggets of yumminess to training one day and that is all it took, I bugged her for the next several weeks until she lovingly gave me the recipe!  This recipe is simple, adaptable, healthful, includes chocolate, and quick…how much more perfect can it get?  So, mix up these babies and you’ll have the perfect pre-workout, pre-hike, pre-bike-ride, pre-any-fun-exercise-activity snack!  Also, one of these with a small glass of milk would be a great after school snack for the kiddos.  They are addictive and not low-calorie. Consider yourself warned…

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dry oats
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (heard from one gal that almond butter doesn’t work in this recipe)
  • 1/2 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Directions:  Mix all ingredients together and shape into balls.  Store in refrigerator.

I know Sherry has made this recipe with additional items like Craisins or sunflower seeds. So you can be creative, just be sure to add healthy things!

Makes 24 balls:  Each has 90 calories/4 grams of protein/2 grams of fiber

Thanks Sherry!
