These energy bites are truly the best snack and do provide a nice boost of energy!
These are my version of a homemade protein bar. If you don’t know by now, I love protein bars but as I’ve said before, you have to be careful with which ones you choose to eat because they aren’t all healthy. These energy balls are great because they’re homemade so you know exactly what ingredients you’re putting into your body.
These are also so easy to travel with, so when you're on the move and need a healthy snack, take these babies with you. Not to mention these will take you less than 10 mins to make. I hope you enjoy!

If you don't 'have coffee or chocolate protein powder, use vanilla or unflavored protein powder and add 100% pure cocoa powder if you want more of a chocolate flavor
If you don't have honey, use maple syrup
If you don't have cacao nibs, use mini chocolate chips
I n g r e d i e n t s

1/4 cup rolled oats
2 scoops plant based protein powder, I like to use coffee or chocolate flavored

D i r e c t i o n s
Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix together.
Refrigerate for 1 hour. This makes it easier to roll into balls, but if you don't have time to refrigerate you can try making balls without doing this step.
Roll into balls.
Store in refrigerator.
