Energy Bites

IMG_1179

Human beings get the energy they require from the food they consume.

These little bites contain protein, carbohydrates and fat. These macronutrients are what the body needs for fuel, growth, tissue repair, vitamin absorption, immune function and proper organ function, among many other things.

These bites are simple to make and delicious to eat.

Energy Bites

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Take a small amount into your clean palm and push and roll into a bite size ball.

Bring a few along with you to work or school or while snowshoeing or on a long car ride or on a long walk with your dog or bring some to your yoga class or to karaoke or snack on them while you’re watching your favorite show or while you’re in the kitchen making dinner…you get the idea.
