Try This At Home: No-Bake Protein Energy Bites

Whether you’re training for a race or just living your normal life, it’s always important to have energy! One of favorite new snacks that help keep me going are protein energy bites. I found them at my local grocery store for a hefty price, and realized that it would be a lot cheaper and not too difficult to make them at home. These are super healthy, easy to make, easily transported, and yummy. Need I say more?

Here’s what I used (ish):

  • Peanut Butter (½ cup)
  • Rolled Oats (½ cup)
  • Protein Powder (1 scoop)
  • Chia Seeds (1 tbsp)
  • Vanilla Extract (1 tsp)
  • Cacao Nibs (¼ cup)
  • Coconut Flakes (½ cup)
  • Water

  1. Mix together the peanut butter, oats, protein powder, chia seeds, vanilla extract, and cacao nibs
  2. Add in enough water to make it into a doughy consistency
  3. Roll them into balls!
  4. Pour coconut flakes onto wax paper and roll the balls in it for a coconut coating
  5. Store in the refrigerator and enjoy!

Pro Tip: These can be made with virtually any add-ins. Try adding your favorite dried fruit, chopped nuts, substituting with almond butter, or using different kinds of protein powder (or none at all)!

Happy Snacking!
