Quick and Healthy Snack Bites
This recipe is easy, ready in 30 minutes or less. It is freezable and a great make ahead treat the whole family will enjoy. And, it’s vegetarian.
One of the things I really like about this recipe is it is easily adaptable, you can make any number of variations. Try using crunchy peanut butter or add some granola instead of coconut flakes. You can change the chips that you use, try butterscotch or dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet. If you want to boost the protein content, add a scoop of dotFIT WheySmooth protein in the flavor of your choice. The options are up to you, so play around with it.
Snack Bite Ingredients
Makes about 3 dozen
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup natural, creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup ground flaxseed meal
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Directions for Snack Bites
1) In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except chocolate chips.
2) Stir to combine.
3) Add chocolate chips to mixture and stir again, just until combined.
4) Using your hands, press firmly to form one-inch balls.
5)Place in air-tight container and refrigerate as needed.
If your peanut butter is one of the natural brands that needs to be refrigerated, then so do your Snack Bites. Actually, regardless of the peanut butter you use, these will keep much better in the refrigerator. They can even be frozen (so you may want to make a triple batch!). When frozen, these Snack Bites will be thawed in about 20 minutes.
