Protein Packed “Speed Balls” Snack

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

  1. 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: kristinerenaeritter@hotmail.com
