PB Chocolate Chip Energy Bites




We've been making a batch of these every other day lately.. they are one of my favorite healthy snacks to keep on hand while working/schooling at home! 🏡

.

The original recipe was inspired by @gimmesomeoven - I've made a few changes to decrease the sugar and add more fiber and protein. My family loves them so much, and I hope you do too!


Ingredients:

1) 1 cup rolled oats (or gluten free rolled oats)

2) 1/2 cup peanut butter

3) 1/2 cup ground flaxseed

4) 1/4 cup honey

5) 1 Tbsp chia seeds

6) 2 Tbsp powdered peanut butter

7) 1 Tbsp acacia fiber

8) 1 tsp vanilla extract

9) 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (no sugar option here)

10) 2/3 cup unsweetened coconut


Directions:

1) Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

2) Stir together very well - you may need to use your hands to ensure everything is thoroughly mixed.

3) Using a tablespoon, scoop out mixture and form into balls. Roll between your palms to ensure ingredients are tightly packed together.
