Super Seed Protein Bites

  • Yield: 36 Bites 1x

Description

Freezer-friendly and peanut-free protein energy bites are a delicious snack or dessert.  They are full of healthy fats, heart healthy seeds, and sweetened with just a touch of honey.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats (I pulse mine in a food processor for 1-2 seconds)
  • 1 cup ground flaxseed powder
  • ¼ cup raw chia seeds
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ cups toasted coconut*
  • 1 ¼ cups cashew or almond butter
  • ¾ cup honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl
  2. Roll into round tablespoon sized balls and place on a cookie sheet
  3. Place cookie sheet in freezer for 90 minutes before transferring balls to an airtight container.

Notes

To toast coconut, add to a large skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until flakes begin to brown and become aromatic.

Homemade energy bites will stay fresh in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.  I keep mine in the freezer (up to 2 months) until I am ready to eat them.  Thaw for 5-10 minutes before trying to eat them straight from the freezer.
