Peanut Butter + Chocolate Energy Bites

Peanut Butter + Chocolate Energy Bites

Craving something sweet?? Maybe that 3pm slump has got you down or need an after dinner treat?? You can't go wrong with these Peanut Butter + Chocolate Energy Bites!

Loaded with whole grains and protein, they also give you a little sweet treat, without going over the top--i usually count 2 of these treats as one serving.  Whip up a batch on Sunday and have them to snack on all week long. They keep great in the fridge and freezer!

You can add extra nutrients by adding chia and/or flax seed, too but it's totally optional!

Peanut Butter + Chocolate Energy Bites
Makes about (24) 1-inch bites

2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips (dark chocolate is great and mini chips are easy to eat!)
1/2  cup peanut butter (may need to add slighlty more)
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons chia seeds (optional)
2 tablespoons ground flax seed (optional)
Pinch of salt

  1. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients with a spoon until well combined. You may need to add a bit more peanut butter if the mixture has a hard time coming together.
  2. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to an hour, then roll into 1 inch balls.
  3. Store in an airtight container or freeze for up to a month.
