No-Bake Energy Bites
Posted Jun 20th, 2016
These protein packed bites are a great option for a quick wholesome snack. You can even choose to make them with all organic ingredients. I love an energy bite paired with a banana slice, it makes a perfect sweet treat and mid afternoon boost.
1 1/2 cups Clearly Organic Old Fashioned Oats
1/2 cup whey protein powder (optional)
1 teaspoon Clearly Organic Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon chia seeds
1/2 cup Clearly Organic Almond Butter (or any natural nut butter)
3 Tablespoons Clearly Organic Honey or Agave Sweetener
1 Tablespoon Clearly Organic Vanilla
1/4 cup Clearly Organic Raisins
3 Tablespoons mini chocolate chips
2-4 Tablespoons liquid (water, almond or coconut milk)
Add oats, protein powder, cinnamon and chia seeds to a mixing bowl. Stir, then add nut butter, honey and vanilla. Stir to combine. Place raisins and mini chocolate chips into the mixture. Add liquid 1 Tablespoon at a time stirring as you go, you may want to use your hands to mix well. Combine until all ingredients start to stick together in a large ball. Then using your hands shape the mixture into small bite size pieces. Mixture should make about 20 energy bites. Place energy bites on a plate or in an air tight container. Store covered in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving. The energy bites can last up to 3 weeks if stored in a covered container in the refrigerator.
