Equipment

  • Mixing bowl

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Truvia brown sugar blend or substitute for a sweetener of your choice
  • 1 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup organic peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup organic honey
  • 1/3 cup mini dark chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds
  • Cinnamon optional for drizzling
  • Coconut flakes optional

Instructions

  • Simply combine all of the ingredients in a bowl until well mixed. It should be the same consistency as cookie dough.

  • If the mixture is too sticky, you can refrigerate the dough for an hour or so for it to harden. Then begin rolling the mixture into individual bite-sized balls and placing them on wax paper. 
  • Garnish them with cinnamon powder, shredded coconut, or edible flowers as you'd like, then serve.

Notes

  • You can also easily customize these protein balls however you'd like. For instance, feel free to add a scoop of protein powder for an extra post-workout kick! Other options for including in your peanut butter energy bites:
    • Rolled oats
    • Almond butter
    • Nut butter
    • Crushed graham crackers
    • Sprinkles
  • For a finer energy ball recipe, you can combine the dry ingredients into a food processor to make a smooth, easy to eat consistency.
  • You can also store leftover bites in a zip lock bag in the freezer to keep them nice and fresh for a simple and easy snack on the go!
