Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Protein Bites Recipe
This recipe is so simple — you won't even need to turn on the oven! Just mix up the ingredients and allow time to refrigerate the bites before serving.
Makes 24 bites
- 1 cup almond butter
- 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups oats
- ½ cup to 1 cup chocolate chips or mix-ins of your choice
1. Beat almond butter with a hand mixer on medium speed until fluffy.
2. Mix in protein powder.
3. Beat in honey and vanilla extract, mixing until well combined.
4. Gradually add in oats, blending on low speed, then stir in chocolate chips.
5. Roll into tablespoon-sized balls and refrigerate.
Usually this recipe turns out well, but depending on the consistency of the almond butter you have available, it may be a little dry. In this instance, you'll need to use a little more honey to help the mixture stick — you can also try adding a small amount of flaxseed oil or coconut oil to bring moisture to the mixture.
You'll know it's right when the consistency feels good in your hands and you can shape the bites the way you want to.
