Most days I find myself really hungry between meals...I'm always searching for a snack. Especially days I go to the gym. By the time I get home I'm so hungry but first I always have to look after what Bilal needs so I keep delaying eating something.
Last week was The Secret Recipe Club's reveal day. Dorothy at Shockingly Delicious made some Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Power Bites which she had found over at Cooking Whims. These looked like the perfect quick snack to help me get over those hunger pains. These energy bites are extremely easy to make and are very yummy....just make sure that you have just one since they are calorie dense! I also shared them with some friends for our weekly morning walk and got great reviews!
Peanut Butter, Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Energy Bites
Adapted from Cooking Whims via Shockingly Delicious
1/2 cup large flake oats (or old fashioned oats)
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp milk
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (I used mini white chocolate chips)
3 tbsp roasted unsalted sunflower seeds
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until well combined. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Break off small pieces and roll into a small ball. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge. I got about 12 bites out of this recipe.
