Energy Bites

It's hard to find easy, healthy snacks for on the go or for pre and post-workouts.  One of my favorite snacks is energy bites! Whether you need them to fuel before your workout or after your workout or if you just need a little something throughout the day to give you a boost, they are the perfect snack!

They are so easy to make! All you need is:
1 cup oats
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
*Optional: One scoop vanilla whey protein powder

You just simply take all the ingredients, mix them together, roll them into balls, and then place in the refrigerator for around 15 minutes to give them time to set up a little.  That's it.  You have a delicious (and healthy!) snack.  You can also add other things rather than the chocolate chips.  Maybe you prefer butterscotch chips or even mini m&ms. I've even tried Nutella in place of the peanut butter (yum!).  I have yet to experiment with different types of energy bites, when I do you will be the first to know!  They disappear pretty quickly- this specific batch was gone in less than an hour with the help of my husband, father-in-law, and brother-in-law. :)
