5 Minute Protein Peanut Butter Energy Bites

Fibre & protein packed peanut butter energy bites with amazing chewy texture! Loaded with nutritious ingredients like flaxseed, chia seeds, coconut, oats, & more!



INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup natural drippy peanut butter or almond butter
1/4 cup coconut palm syrup (honey also works)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup protein powder of choice*
1/3 cup flaxseeds
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup rolled oats (gluten free, if desired)
1 tablespoons mini chocolate chips (vegan, if desired)
1 tablespoon chia seeds

INSTRUCTIONS:

In a large bowl, mix together peanut butter, coconut palm syrup and vanilla extract until well combined. Add in protein powder, coconut, flaxseed meal, oats, chocolate chips and chia seeds. Mix until well combined. I usually have to use my hands to mix and work with the dough. At this point you should be able to form balls that stick together. Because all peanut butter/nut butter consistencies are different and depending on what protein powder you use, you may need to add in more nut butter or sweetener to help the balls stick together.

Form into 12 balls and place in an airtight container. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week, or the freezer for a month. Enjoy!
