Protein Almond Butter Energy Bites

Happy Sunday! I love to use my Sunday to make some snacks and food prep for the week. One of our new favorite snacks are these Protein Almond Butter Energy Bites. They are perfect in the afternoon to help tide you over until dinner and beat the afternoon crash! :) 

Ingredients: 

1/2 Cup Almond Butter
1/4 Cup Honey 
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/3 Cup Protein Powder of Choice (I use 
Grass-Fed Whey Protein Isolate)
1/3 Cup Flaxseed Meal
1/3 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
1/2 Cup Rolled Oats 

Directions:

In a large bowl, mix together almond butter, honey and vanilla extract until well combined. I like to put the mixture into the microwave for about 20-30 seconds to make it easier to mix.

Add in protein powder, coconut, flaxseed meal, and oats. Mix until well combined. 

I usually have to use my hands to mix and work with the dough. At this point you should be able to form balls that stick together. If not add a bit more almond butter or honey.

Form into 12 balls and place in an airtight container. 

Enjoy!
