Prep Time

10 Minutes

Total Time

10 Minutes

1. Line a plate or baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.


2. Melt the peanut butter, honey, and coconut oil together until it becomes thin and liquid. It doesn't need to cook, just warm up.


3. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, flaxseed, chia seeds, cocoa powder, vanilla, and protein powder.


4. Using a rubber spatula, mix in the peanut butter/honey mixture into the oat mixture until well combined. You might need to switch to using your hands.


5. Using your hands, roll out 20-24 small round balls. You want these to be bite sized, about 1 TBSP worth at a time.


6. Place all the bites on the lined tray, and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to firm up.


7. Store in a covered container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
