Energy Bites

Dawn’s Energy Bites

If you’re a parent, you’re probably all too familiar with the ‘I’m hungry! There’s nothing to eat!’ chorus that fills the house, especially during summer break. That’s why I love having these Energy Bites on hand. They’re not just a ‘treat’ but a nutritional powerhouse. Packed with protein and nutritious seeds, they’re a great way to boost energy. I stash a few in my work bag for a quick and satisfying mid-morning or afternoon snack. Energy Bite Ingredients: 1 cup pure creamy peanut butter {look for the type without sugar or added oil} 1/4 cup raw honey 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats 3 tbsp chia seeds 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds 3/4 cup chocolate chips {mini work best} 1/4 tsp sea salt Optional ingredients: Shredded coconut Chocolate candies {UNREAL chocolate gems or M&Ms} Flax seeds Hemp hearts Directions: Mix all ingredients with a wooden spoon or mixer, then refrigerate the dough for about 20 minutes until set. Roll the dough into golf-ball-sized balls. We keep ours in the refrigerator to keep them fresh. I typically double this recipe because we go through them fast!
