PB Energy Bites

GF / DF / Vegan

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup organic peanut butter– creamy or crunchy both work good
  • 1/3 cup honey (raw and local is best)
  • 2/3 cup of toasted coconut flakes (I often add extra coconut flakes to add more crunch)
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup of chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life dark morsels to keep it Vegan and dairy free)–or just add one chocolate chip to the peanut butter balls at the end for less chocolate chips.
  • Optional–2 to 3 Tbsp of crushed pecan pieces

Directions:

  • Mix all the ingredients together.
  • Roll into small bite size balls. Enjoy!
  • NOTE: If the mixture is too sticky place in a covered bowl in the fridge for 1 hour and then roll into balls. Also see tips below for if the mixture continues to be too sticky or dry.
  • Store in the fridge for freshness and to reduce stickiness.
  • Tip: if the mixture seems too sticky before placing in the fridge add a little more oats. And if the mixture is too dry add a little more honey and PB.
  • These bites can make for a perfect pre or post workout snack or when you just want a yummy but healthier treat option.

These tend to be a hit when I make and take them to work!

I am a doctor of Audiology by day and always on the search for healthy living in and out of the kitchen. I enjoy a balance of family time with my husband and fitness and healthy eating where I can squeeze it in. Faith, family and friends are the foundation of my very blessed life. I am always on the search for yummy eats that have a mix of DF, GF and keto otpions. Along with clean eating options that support a long healthy lifestyle. I have been a fitness model and powerlifter and I love promoting a healthier way of life where I can. I have learned to find strength from within and believe in myself. God has blessed me abundantly with the love of my life, Shaun. My healthy living now includes finding healthy and good eats that are hubby approved.
