This week really got away from me! One of the things I did was to create a quick and easy energy bite recipe.
1/3 cup raw nut butter (for this batch I used homemade cashew butter, but you can use any, even peanut butter)
1/3 cup raw honey
1 1/2 cups oatmeal (Old-fashioned, not instant)
1/4 cup raw seeds (I used pumpkin)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)
Melt honey and nut butter. While that is melting, mix together dry ingredients. Pour in honey/butter mixture, mix together until all oatmeal is moistened. This mixture will resemble wet granola.
Roll into 1″ balls (these are sticky!) and place on a pan.
Refrigerate until firm (or enjoy right away). Keep leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
These energy bites are my favorite afternoon pick-me-up snack, post-workout treat, or dessert. The beauty of this recipe is that you can play around with the ingredients to your liking. You can make the oats gluten-free, change the seeds, the nut butter, switch out the chocolate chips for white chocolate and add in some craisins…the possibilities are endless!
If you have a fun healthy workout snack, please leave a comment! I’m always looking for good snack options! 🙂
