I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving. But, before we move on to Christmas I wanted to share a simple, easy and healthy treat with all of you. Gluten free energy bites! I’ve recently got myself motivated enough to get back to the gym. And by recently I mean last week! Anyone who works out knows nutrition is key. These delicious little balls will help keep you on track, but the kids will love them too. It’s a treat you won’t have to feel guilty about because they are pretty healthy and full of good wholesome ingredients. I’ve been making these for years and everyone loves them. They truly are a guilt free treat. For me, they are a perfect snack to bring to work. These little gluten free energy bites satisfy my cravings and keeps me away from the vending machine at work! Here’s what you need to make them:
1 cup old-fashioned oats
2/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey
1 TBS chia seeds
1 tsp vanilla extract
Throw all the ingredients together in a bowl
Stir it up
Cover the bowl and let it chill in the fridge for a half hour.
Once chilled, roll into whatever size balls you want. I usually do 24 mini balls or 12 larger balls. Each serving has 6 grams of protein!
There you have it, gluten free energy bites! Enjoy!!
