We’re getting back to a bit of normalcy here and my daughter is starting lacrosse with her middle school. She was looking for a good snack to have before practice and we found this recipe for energy bites. They’re packed full protein and nutritious snack to give her the energy to give it all her all on the field.
She wanted to make these herself and because it’s a simple and easy recipe, she had no issues. I’m sure her younger brother would have no issue making them either. There’s only 5 ingredients and take less than 30 minutes to make!
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
2 Tbsp honey
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a medium bowl, mix all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to firm up the mixture. Scoop the mixture into 12 equal balls. I used a tablespoon cookie scoop to make it easy.
Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
