Healthy snacks are VERY important in our house. If you have been following us for a while, you know that 'Nourishing Yourself Consistently Throughout the Day' is 1 of our 5 habits for Massive Impact. Committing to nourishing yourself throughout the day is important because:
1 - it keeps your metabolism burning
2 - keeps you well fueled
3 - helps you make better decisions going into the next meal (you know... so you aren't hangry wanting to eat everything in sight.)
In or family, we generally keep snacks VERY simple - think apple + cheese stick, hummus + veggies, cottage cheese + berries but this is a SNACK that we all like to have on hand. I make a HUGE batch and it lasts us a couple of months.
Mike brought these peanut butter energy bites into the gym a few weeks ago - sampling to a few our our clients and burned through our freezer stash - and they got RAVE reviews from the clients that tried them.
Brookie joined me to show you how simple it is to make them - YES - even a 3 year old can make these snacks.
Peanut Butter Energy Bites
40 ounces of peanut butter, melted
4 cups rolled oats
2 cups flax
1/2 cup chia seeds
Honey - measure with your heart
Chocolate chips - optional
Mix all of the ingredients well press into a parchment-lined (and coconut oil sprayed) baking dish. Freeze. Cut into bite-sized pieces and freeze again in individually portioned baggies.
We hope you love them as much as we do!
Lots of love,
Paige & Brookie
