Low-Fat No Bake Energy Bites Recipe
Hello sexy foxes. Today, I wanted to share a recipe that I’ve been making in bulk! I have seen a lot of no-bake energy balls recipes, but a lot of them contain a little too much fat for me. I’ve been dabbling with powdered peanut butter and I must say, I’m having a great experience! These tiny balls pack a huge punch of flavor and nutrients. My favorite thing about this low-fat no-bake snack is that it only calls for 7 ingredients. I love to pop 2 or 3 after a workout for a quick “pick me up.” But of course, you can eat them as a snack anytime. You can make a huge batch so that you and your family can enjoy them throughout the week. This recipe is ridiculously easy and fast to make, so let’s get started.
¼ cup peanut butter
½ cup rolled oats
½ tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup honey
Pinch of pink salt
¼ C flaxseed
¼ C chocolate chips
1. I ended up mixing the powdered peanut butter with water (a ratio of 2:1) to have it ready to pour. I stirred together 6 tablespoons of water with a little more than 3 tablespoons because I wanted my consistency to be a little runny
2. To make it easy on myself I just measured everything out ahead of time. You can play with the ratios to see which works better. I like a little more liquids to help the oats mix well and stick to the other ingredients
3. I combined all the ingredients in one bowl (or pot). Then, I rolled the mixture in between the palm of my hands until I made a 1-inch ball. Caution: Your hands will be sticky as f#$%!
4. Finally, I put those bad boys in the fridge and waited 30-60 minutes for them to set
Feel free to double the recipe and play around with the ingredients. You can add raisins, dates, maple syrup, chia seeds… I think you get the picture. I hope you enjoy the recipe and let me know if you end up giving it a try.
