Homemade Energy Protein Bites

As I mentioned in my previous post, for me to stay on track with eating (mostly) healthy, it is essential that I have good snacks on hand. These are a favourite of mine because they are filling, delicious and take all of 10 minutes to make. There is a ton of recipes online for similar ones but I never really follow a strict recipe for these because it’s pretty hard to screw it up. I typically follow some form of my own recipe below:

1 cup oats (quick oats)
1/2 cup peanut butter or almond butter (whichever you prefer!)
1/4 cup honey
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (sometimes I melt them before mixing everything together)
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1 tsp vanilla
1 or 2 full scoops of protein powder (usually something vanilla or chocolate flavour works best)
A sprinkle of cinnamon
Mix everything together in a bowl. Form into balls and place on a tray/pan then put in the freezer for an hour or so. I usually keep them in the freezer and take them out a few minutes before I want to eat them. They stay better this way, but you can leave them in the cupboard or fridge if you prefer 🙂

The finished product! So easy and simple, I promise if you try them they will be a staple snack for you too.
