Easy Energy Bites

These little gems are perfect for a quick bite during the busy morning rush, an afternoon energy boost, or an after school snack for the littles.
Prep Time 10 mins
refrigeration time 30 mins
Course Breakfast, Snack
Servings 24 balls

Ingredients
  

  • 2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup peanut butter creamy or crunchy, your preference
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup mini m&ms
  • 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder

Instructions
 

  • Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
    2. Shape into balls, about 1" in size. I like to use a cookie scoop to get them uniformly sized.
    3. Store in refrigerator. Or, place in a freezer bag or other air-tight container and store in freezer for several weeks. I take out enough for a work week on Sunday nights, and thaw in fridge, so they are ready to grab and go each morning. You can also warm individually for about 10 seconds in the microwave to thaw.
    4. These bites can be customized to your liking easily. Try adding nuts, dried fruit, or different flavors of chocolate chips.
