My husband and I use these little gems for snacks during bike racing and riding season. They are nutrient packed small snack that are a great replacement for granola and/or other snack bars. My kids love them too! Easy to put together and store (extras in freezer).
PB/Chocolate Protein Balls
1 C Old fashioned Oats
1/2 C ground flax seed
1/2 C mini chocolate chips
1/2 C crunchy peanut butter (I have used Almond Butter also, or Cashew Butter)
1/3 C honey or agave
1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Form into small 1 inch balls and put on baking sheet. Freeze for 1 hour until set. Store in airtight container in refrigerator. May store excess in freezer until ready to use.
Serving size: 2

JoEllen, That is so funny! I make these energy bites all the time and my family loves them. I just sent this recipe to a couple of friends. Glad to know that the “nutritionist” likes these all well. Thanks, Kristine Date: Thu, 21 Jan 2016 16:03:53 +0000 To: email@example.com
