Almond Butter Oatmeal Energy Bites are a protein-packed, healthy snack combining your favorite trail mix, quick oats, protein powder, almond butter, maple syrup, honey, and chocolate.
Looking for a delicious, protein-packed snack?
Hi Everyone, I’m excited to share this incredibly easy-to-make, healthy, protein-packed snack recipe: Almond Butter Oatmeal Energy Bites!
These energy bites can be made ahead for the week and freeze well, making them a wonderful meal prep snack option. I can see these energy bites as a great option for an after school snack, pre or post work out snack, or just because!
They are customizable! You can pick your favorite trail mix and protein powder so they can fit your personal tastes. It is a bonus that they are mostly (save for the chocolate chip morsels) naturally sweet with 100% pure maple syrup and wildflower honey. If you want to make them 100% naturally sweet, you could sub the chocolate chips for cacao nibs.
Helpful Tip for Almond Butter Oatmeal Energy Bites
Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or wax paper to place the energy bites on to before rolling to avoid sticking. You can line your storage container with the paper as well.
