Chocolate and oat energy bites

    40 min

    A very versatile recipe that will make about 10 bite size enery-boosting balls. You can use almond butter instead of peanut butter and cacao powder instead of chocolate protein powder. If you find that the mixture is too dry - try wetting your hands as you shape them into balls.

    These are so good! I don't use the chia seeds, but I do use the flax seed. Be sure to grind the flax seed to get the full nutritional value from it. I used a little coffee bean grinder. Great recipe!!  -  05 Mar 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I use almond butter and semi-sweet chocolate chips. I only put in a couple tablespoons of honey. One thing that helped a ton was wetting my hands when forming the balls.  -  28 Sep 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My husband and I love protein balls. I make them quite a bit to give us that boost of energy we need to get through our workouts or recovery afterwards. This is a great tasting and easy to make protein ball. You can mix up the additions to whatever you want. They are a great alternative to a pre-packaged granola bar. Give them a try you'll love them.  -  20 Aug 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
