I’m all about the protein lately.
Cottage cheese, edamame, peanut butter and piles of grilled fish. I’m sure the bean in my belly has something to do with it.
So when I was in full nesting mode last week, I started whipping goodies up in the kitchen. Banana bread, roasted potatoes, baked chicken, pasta fagiole.
Then a peanut butter-looking concoction popped up in one of my social media feeds. I realized I had all the ingredients and set to work to make PEANUT BUTTER ENERGY BITES!

Trying new recipes today! Meet my peanut butter energy bites. Once they chill a bit longer, I'll let you know if they were worth the effort. #fitnessmotivation #eatclean #healthyeating #nom #instagood #instafood #fiveingredients #honey #oatmeal #peanutbutter #chia #chocolatechips #mmm
All lined up in a row.
Ready to try this super easy recipe? Here is what you will need:
- 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. honey
- 1/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup chia seeds (I used ground chia)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Cover, let chill in fridge for 30(ish) minutes.
Grab a handful of oats and a few chocolate chips and scatter them on a clean cutting board. Roll the chilled mixture into bite-sized balls, then roll over the cutting board for another layer of oats and chips. My batch made 20 teaspoon-sized bites.
Store the completed energy bites in an airtight container in your fridge. ENJOY!
Even my brutally honest husband liked these. I’ll be making them more often for sure.
What’s your go-to protein snack?
