Prep Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 12 balls
- 1 cup of old-fashioned oats
- 2/3 cup of peanut butter (chunky for added texture)
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (optional)
- 1/4 cup of chia seeds
- 3 tbsp of honey or maple syrup (preferably raw for its natural goodness)
- 2 tbsp of Organic Alaria Flakes
- 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp of cinnamon
In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients. Stir well to ensure an even distribution of flavors and textures. If the mixture appears too dry, add a bit more peanut butter or honey. Conversely, if it's too wet, incorporate additional oats until you achieve the desired consistency.
For an optimal experience, refrigerate the mixture for 15-20 minutes. While optional, this step makes shaping the bites a breeze.
Once chilled, take a small handful of the mixture and roll it between your palms, shaping it into a compact ball.
Repeat the process until all the mixture has been transformed into delectable protein bites.
Place your protein bites in a dish and store them in the refrigerator. Now comes the best part – savoring each bite whenever your heart desires!
