2 2/3 tbsps Oats (quick)
2 tbsps Oat Flour
2 tbsps Vanilla Protein Powder
2 tbsps Ground Flax Seed
1 tbsp Chia Seeds
3/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 cup Almond Butter
2 tbsps Maple Syrup
1 1/2 tsps Unsweetened Almond Milk (optional; if needed)
In a large mixing bowl combine quick oats, oat flour, protein powder, ground flax, chia seeds and cinnamon. Fold in the almond butter and maple syrup until a thick dough forms. If it is too thick to work with, add the almond milk.
Use a tablespoon to scoop out dough and roll into balls, approximately 1-inch in diameter. Chill in the fridge for at least 20 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
Storage: Keep energy bites in the fridge for up to seven days or freezer for up to three months. Always serve chilled.
Serving Size: One serving is equal to one ball.
Nut-Free: Use sunflower seed butter or pumpkin seed butter instead of almond butter. Use coconut milk instead of almond milk.
Protein Powder: This recipe was developed and tested using a plant-based protein powder.
No Maple Syrup: Use honey instead.
Gluten-Free: Use certified gluten-free quick oats.
No Quick Oats: For best results, these balls need a smaller oat-texture. If you substitute with rolled oats, pulse a few times in a food processor to chop them into a quick oats texture.
No Protein Powder: Use more oat flour instead.
