Chia Seed Protein Bites Recipe



Chia Seed Protein Bites Recipe

I keep these little bites on hand in my refrigerator and grab them for breakfast or to snack on when I'm in a hurry. We have a lot of food allergies in our family and I like to keep healthy snacks around that everyone can eat. This recipe has no gluten, eggs, dairy or corn, so it's the perfect go-to treat in our house.

Ingredients :
1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup almond butter or creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup vanilla or chocolate protein powder
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
Additional unsweetened shredded coconut, optional

In a large bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to roll. Shape into 1-1/2-in. balls. Roll in additional coconut if desired. Store in the refrigerator.
