Yum-o Organic Energy/Protein Bites

Energy Bites - MinnesotaFromScratch.wordpress.com

A few months ago, a co-worker brought these healthy snacks into work to share her delicious discovery.  They were so good I immediately requested her source and put them on my “to make” list.  The great thing about these amazing bites is that they are no-bake, easy to make, and kids love them!

This versatile recipe can include a plethora of different ingredients, whether it’s dried fruit replacing the chocolate chips or honey replacing the syrup.  I left out the coconut flakes and added in hemp hearts.  Below is my version of the recipe using all available organic ingredients.

The Ingredients (makes 20 balls):

  • 1 C. Old-Fashioned Oats
  • ½ C. Peanut Butter
  • ½ C. Ground Flaxseed
  • ½ C. Chocolate Chips (next time I’ll use mini chips)
  • 1/3 C. Maple Syrup
  • ¼ C. Hemp Hearts (additional information)
  • 1 T. Chia Seeds (additional information)
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract

Mix everything together well, place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, and then roll into 1” bites.  Store them in the refrigerator and they will keep for up to a week!
