Peanut Butter Chia Energy Bites

These energy bites are perfect midday pick me ups, and great for a post workout protein boost! This recipe makes about 12 bite-sized snacks, each one providing approximately 5g of protein!





No baking required, these are great snacks to prepare on a Sunday night before starting a work week. Just keep the energy bites in the fridge in an air tight container and they will stay fresh and ready to eat until the end of the week. 

Here is how I make my Peanut Butter Chia Energy Bites:





Ingredients:
6 Tbsp* Chia Seeds
3 Tbsp Ground Flax 
3 Tbsp Unsalted Roasted Peanuts
3 Tbsp Peanut Butter
3 Tbsp Maple Syrup 


Instructions

Mix together 3 Tbsp* Chia Seeds with the flax, peanuts, maple syrup and peanut butter. 

Mix together until all the ingredients are well combined. 

Roll into 1/2” - 1” Balls 

Roll the balls in the remaining chia seeds until coated. 

Store in an air tight container and Refrigerate.

Enjoy!
