WITH A DELICIOUS DOSE OF PROTEIN
I LOVE THESE DELICIOUS TREATS AND THANKS TO THE NUTRITION PLAN I FOLLOW I GET TO EAT THEM! NOTHING MAKES ME HAPPIER THAN A SWEET TREAT THAT HAS THE RIGHT COMBINATION OF NUTRITION.
If you have a sweet tooth like me, have some Peanut Butter Bites on hand. These bites are a little balls of happiness and protein- there couldn't be a better combination. I am always grazing the kitchen looking for something to satisfy that need for a dessert, these bites do the trick! I highly recommend making these while you're traveling too- having these on hand keeps you away from those bad desserts and vending machines!
THIS RECIPE IS EASY...Peanut Butter Bites
1 cup Natural Peanut Butter (creamy or smooth) (you can also use almond butter!)
1 cup Honey
1 cup Old Fashioned Oats (Gluten Free oats if you're Gfree like me, otherwise these are not Gluten Free)
1 cup Diced Apricots
1 cup Sliced Almonds
Cinnamon to taste (optional)
1) In medium size pot, on lowest heat- warm up the Honey & Peanut Butter until texture is runny. You are not cooking it, just mixing around until it is smooth.
2) Mix in diced Apricots, sliced Almonds and Oats
3) Stir until all ingredients are well coated
4) Cool in fridge for at least 45 minutes
5) Roll into small bite sized balls (about 1 tbs)
-If you are Gluten Free use G-free oats, these are not gluten free using regular oats
-I was in a hurry making my bites so I threw them in the freezer to cool them down, then I rolled them while they were still a little warm and then put them back in the freezer for them to chill quickly!
-If you want to make them higher in protein, the girls behind the nutrition plan like to add 3 scoops of organic vanilla protein powder. I like brown rice protein!
Enjoy this Peanut Butter treat!!!
