Brownie Energy Bites:

One of my favourite easy snacks to make when I’m craving something sweet has to be energy bites. They are great to grab and go for a quick breakfast, to snack on in between meals, pre or post workout or as a nighttime sweet snack. They are high in protein and fats so a couple of these bite sized balls will keep you satisfied.

You can experiment with different add ins but the base is really the first four ingredients.

Brownie Energy Bites:

•1/2 cup natural peanut butter

(or you can use almond butter)

•1/4 cup honey

•1 cup of ground oats (you don’t have to grind the oats but I like the texture better)

•1/2 cup of almond milk (or milk of choice)

•1 tbsp of cacao powder

•1 tbsp of coconut oil (a must if adding cacao powder)

•1 tbsp of chia seeds

• 1 tbsp of ground flax seed

•1/2 scoop of chocolate protein powder (I use Quattro by Magnum Whey Protein or Genuine Health Vegan Protein for a plant based option)

•pinch of sea salt

Other great add ins: chocolate chips, chopped nuts etc..

Mix all ingredients in one bowl. Refrigerate for 20 mins and then roll into 1 inch balls.
