GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Getting back to the groove of work, school and weekly responsibilities is sure difficult, especially after a long weekend spent with family and friends.
In this week’s Make It Monday, we’re showing you a healthy energy bite recipe packed with protein and sweetened with honey. You can adapt this recipe to your own personal needs, like making it gluten-free or organic.
These bites don’t need to be baked yet still taste just like cookies.
Here’s what you’ll need:
– 1 cup oats
– 2/3 cup coconut flakes
– 1/2 cup peanut butter
– 1/3 cup honey
– 1/4 cup cocoa powder
– 1 tablespoon chia seeds
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Part of the reason these are considered energy bites is because of the chia seeds. They’re small ovals that are rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, B Vitamins, Calcium, Iron and other minerals.
Add all your ingredients into a big mixing bowl and take a spoon to combine. Next, put the mixture in the fridge and wait about an hour.
When it’s time, take it out and use a spoon and your hands to form the mixture into balls.
Place them on a plate or container and keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to eat them.
