Peanut Butter Energy Bites

From Sarah Lipoff, POPSUGAR Food


You can use creamy or crunchy peanut butter for these bites.

These Protein Bites Are Perfect For Grabbing on the Go


  1. For the bites:
  1. 1 cup oatmeal
    3/4 cup peanut butter
    1/4 cup cocoa powder
    1 tablespoon vanilla protein powder
    1 tablespoon honey
    1 tablespoon chia seeds
    1 tablespoon raisins, chopped
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. For the coating:
  1. 1 cup shredded coconut, slivered almonds, or chopped peanuts for rolling bites


  1. Add the oats, peanut butter, cocoa powder, protein powder, honey, chia seeds, raisins, and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Use a wooden spoon to incorporate the ingredients until the dough comes together. It will be loose but clumpy.
  3. Cover a sheet tray with the coconut, almonds, or chopped peanuts or even a combination of all three.
  4. Roll the bites into golf-ball-size balls, squeezing to form together, then gently toss them on the sheet tray to coat. Press the coating as needed so it sticks.
  5. Line a storage container with wax paper and layer in the refrigerator. Let set for 1 hour before enjoying.
