These energy bites have shown up in my snacking routines pretty frequently lately. I initially wanted to make a PB & J version…but I didn’t have any J to add to them. But vanilla protein powder and peanut butter went together surprisingly well! Lo and behold, the outcome was a batch of delicious vanilla peanut butter energy bites.

Ingredients
  • ½ cup natural or creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup crunchy peanut butter
  • ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 scoops About Time vanilla protein powder
  • ¼ cup ground flax seed
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds (optional)
Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients together into a bowl. If you use natural peanut butter, you may need to add a few more oats, since it can have a thinner consistency. If you the mix is too dry, add more PB!
  2. Roll together into 15-16 balls.
  3. Stick in freezer for 1 hour minimum before eating. Store in refrigerator.
