No Bake PB Protein Bites

Peanut butter bites
  • Author: Eating Bird Food, Chef for EatLove
  • Yield: 18 servings 1x
  • Category: Snack

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 scoops organic vanilla protein powder
  • 1⁄2 cup creamy peanut butter (heaping)
  • 1⁄4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened apple sauce, more, if needed
  • 1⁄2 cup organic freeze dried strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons mini chocolate or carob chips

Instructions

  1. Place oats, protein powder, freeze dried strawberries and chocolate chips into a small bowl and stir to combine.
  2. In a separate bowl mix together the peanut butter, applesauce and honey. Pour the wet peanut butter mixture over the dry mixture and stir well. Combining this mixture will take a little stirring power and it may seem a little crumbly at first. You can use your hands to knead the dough near the end. If it’s too crumbly, you can add an extra tablespoon applesauce to moisten it.
  3. Once combined, start forming the the dough into one inch balls.
  4. Store in a covered container in the fridge or freezer.
