Ever wish you could pop some goodness in your mouth and your body would be fueled for hours? Look no further! These power bites are full of fiber, protein and are a great snack pre or post work out. Heck, I might even have them for breakfast. I might even go as far as saying they are perfect when you are craving something sweet. I would totally eat them for dessert and not feel guilty about it at all!
Can I start by saying, these bites could not be any easier to prepare! You literally measure all of the ingredients out, mix and refrigerate. You can add whatever mix-ins you like much like the granola bars I made before. I used unsweetened coconut flakes and chunky peanut butter. You can add walnuts, cranberries, chocolate chips etc.Use your imagination! I also added chia seeds ( seeds of awesomeness from the Aztecs) because they have a ton of fiber and Omega 3's. Plus they give the bites a nice crunch!
Granola Power Bites
Recipe from Vippins
|Makes about 20-25 balls.|
1 cup (dry) oatmeal
1 cup toasted coconut flakes
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla
Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed.
Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
Cooking tip: When putting honey or peanut butter in measuring cups, spray measuring cup with cooking spray first so the honey or peanut butter won't stick!
