3 Step Protein Bites

I have heard of protein energy bites for a while now, and never took the time to make them. With this wedding getting closer, and my sweet tooth needing a bit of control I had to try them out.




You will need:
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/cup flax & chia seeds
2/3 cup toasted coconut
1 cup old fashioned oats


To prepare:
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until well mixed
Place bowl in your refrigerator covered for 30 minutes
When chilled, roll into bite size balls, I made mine about 1"
Keep in refrigerator, for up to 1 week
Makes 20-30 balls

These were so easy to make, and even better to enjoy. They are the perfect snack any time of the day, I have been enjoying them with my lunch or when I'm craving something sweet.




What's your favorite go-to healthy snack?
