Happy Monday! Sorry, I’ve been SO MIA. I’ve been drained with work and school. It was a crazy month so I haven’t had much time to work on my blog. I apologize! 🙁 On Thursday and Friday, I went all out and wrote my 15 page paper in 16 hours. From finding research articles, reading them, highlighting important points & getting all my thoughts out on paper. My brain is so fried. On Saturday, I skipped the gym to sleep in and make pancakes for breakfast. So worth it. I had work later at night so I needed the rest!
Anyways, onto these Peanut Butter Superfood Energy Bites! That’s what you to came here for right? These are so flavorful and delicious, you’ll love it. No-bake and so easy to make. I’m all about those one-bowl recipes!
It’s sweetened with maple syrup but you can also use honey. I used crunchy peanut butter but can sub it out for any other nut butter of choice. These also have oat flour! I always ground up my own oat flour with raw oats in my blender – it’s super simple!
Chia Seeds are loaded with essential fatty acids (omega-3), fiber, antioxidants and protein! 2 tbsp contains about 4g of protein, 9g fat, 12g carbs and 11g fiber! It’s also got lots of vitamins and minerals. Definitely a superfood that works well in a variety of recipes – in energy bites, oatmeal, smoothies or on top of toast! Get creative widdit!
Flaxseeds are also known as linseeds. They are a rich source of dietary fiber, omega-3’s (essential fatty acid) and contains antioxidant qualities because of lignans!
