Power bites are nutritious, energy-boosting snacks that are perfect for anyone on the go. They come in small, bite-sized chunks ready to be taken to the field or enjoyed right at home.

 

Ingredients:

1 cup rolled oats
¼ cup ground flaxseed
¼ cup sliced almonds
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
¼ cup honey

Directions:

  • Combine oats, almonds, flaxseed, chia seeds, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl and stir.
  • Melt peanut butter and allow it to cool slightly (I melted mine in the microwave for about 30 seconds, then stirred), then stir in honey and vanilla extract until it’s combined. Once peanut butter has cooled a bit, pour it over the oat mixture and mix well with a spoon then bring together with your hands.
  • Roll dough into golf-ball sized (or slightly smaller) balls.  These can be eaten at room temp but store well in the fridge too!
