No Bake Protein Bites

high protein snack - no bake energy bites w logo
These oven-free #protein bites will give you a zap of energy thanks to ground flaxseed. Fast, easy and #delish, I make a big batch at least once a month, and love popping them as an easy breakfast, a quick snack, a pop of protein before a workout, or even occasionally as a sweet dessert.

I love this recipe because it is super flexible and can be customized to your own taste (see some substitutions below). While the chia seeds are optional, I’d add them in — why not get some extra nutrients?! Take these bites along for a delicious on-the-go protein snack.

INGREDIENTS

chocolate chips
toasted coconut
vanilla extract
peanut butter
old fashioned oats
honey (or agave nectar)
freshly ground flax seed
chia seeds (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

Stir all ingredients together until combined. (Or if you get tired of using a spoon, just use your hands. I do!)

Once the mixture is combined, pop it in the fridge for 10-20 minutes so that it will harden slightly. This will help make it easier to roll it into balls.

Then once the mixture has cooled slightly, shape it however you please! I like shaping mine into 1-inch balls. Or if you’d rather, just press the mixture into a baking dish lined with parchment paper, and you can make energy bars instead.

Substitution ideas:
Different (or no) chocolate: I generally use cacao nibs (vegan). But you can also substitute in any other kinds of chips (butterscotch, milk chocolate, white chocolate, cinnamon chips, etc.). Or if you don’t dig chocolate, you can leave this part out altogether.
Different nut butter: If you are allergic to peanuts, feel free to substitute in any other kinds of nut butter, like almond butter, sunflower seed butter, cashew butter or others.
Different sweetener: I really prefer honey in this recipe, but agave also works and is vegan.

The name of the game with this recipe is customization.  So feel free to give them a try and keep tweaking them to whatever specific combination tastes and feels good to you!
