No- bake peanut butter energy bites recipe

These no-bake peanut butter energy bites are the perfect snack anytime. Not to mention, they’re chock full of protein, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids. I remember making these years ago as a pre-workout snack. They always provided me with the energy that I needed while working out and would make an excellent post-workout snack as well.

I have made several variations of these protein bites but always come back to this recipe since it is my all-time favorite. My Hubby and 19-month old son love these as well!

I used organic peanut butter and shredded coconut flakes as part of this recipe. The only brand of coconut flakes that I use is the “Let’s do…Organic; check it out here. This recipe is vegan and gluten free (as long as you’re using gluten free oats). I have to admit that for being someone who isn’t a vegan, I sure eat like one on a regular basis. I guess part of me hopes to one day transition away from eating meat and dairy but I am just not sure I’d be committed enough at the moment.

Anyway, without further adieu, here is the recipe for these babies!

Enjoy!

    This seems like an easy recipe and portable. I spend three hours a day communicating and need quick snacks that aren’t full of junk. I’m planning to make these this week 🙂
