Peanut Butter Energy Bites-Round One!

August 5, 2012

Well, I’m still in search of great lunch snacks…so far, its been veggies and dip (stand by for the White Bean Hummus Dip), trail mix, fruits (mainly cherries/berries), pretzels and PB, cheese and crackers and now, PB Energy Bites! Yum.

A few weeks ago, I discovered “Superfood Balls” from a local store called Bamboo. They make a lot of tasty treats in house and these grab n’ go superfood balls are excellent. A great blend of everything you’d need in a protein packed snack. I checked out their ingredient list and its basically, PB, puffed rice, tahini, brown rice syrup, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, raisins, spirulina, flax and oats.  I also spoke to a friend of mine who makes her own. She adds chocolate chips to hers, which sounds excellent. She gave me the link and I think I will try those next.

My first attempt turned out pretty good. I definitely want to continue to improve on them. I think maybe less PB and more of other things…as the PB is a bit overbearing. And while I can definitely eat spoonfuls of PB, I want to try to get a little closer to the lighter taste of the superfood bites I tried.
Here they are!

PB Energy Bites:

1/2 cup PB

1/4 cup flax meal

1/4 cup coconut

1/4 cup raisins

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1/2 cup oats

1/4 cup honey

Directions: Mix all ingredients together and shape into balls. (I made 20 small ones) Store in fridge.

Yum! But like I said, maybe too peanutbutter-y? I think I’ll go on a little mission to figure out the recipe they use at Bamboo…I think they may be onto something with the puffed rice..

In the meantime, enjoy some photos from the rodeo!
