A quick and easy recipe for you today. These energy bites are protein loaded with peanut butter, chia seeds, and pumpkin seeds. They are a perfect afternoon pick me up with a cup of coffee or a guilt-free snack to hand out to always hungry toddlers. I love having my refrigerator stocked with these bites.
Are you ready for the recipe?
Here goes. Step one, mix all ingredients together. It is essentially that simple. I’ll give a couple tips for the easiest rolling methods, but it does not take much effort to make this snack.
1 1/2 cups Peanut Butter
3/4 cup Honey
4 cups Oats
1 cup Chia seeds
1 cup Pumpkin Seeds
1 tsp Vanilla
Mix the ingredients very well. I look all fancy here using a spoon. Don’t believe it, I dug my hands in and mixed it that way. Sticky, peanut butter fingers are the only way I can get an even blend of all the ingredients.
You may begin rolling balls from here. What I like to do, however, is to press the mixture into a pan and refrigerate for an hour or so. This helps it set up enough that it rolls and forms balls more easily.
After your hour is up, or 3 hours, wherever you are in your day. Take the tray out with a favorite spoon or scoop and begin forming balls.
Assemble balls in your Tupperware of choose and store in refrigerator for convenient snacking all week long!
