You don’t need to get out of your home in order to make these delicious energy balls—we’re sure all the ingredients are already in your pantry! Here’s how to make simple almond oat bites that will satisfy your craving for a sweet snack while being a healthy and responsible choice.
Are you still working from home? With kids who have Zoom classes all day long, we completely understand why there always needs to be something sweet in the house. If you want to avoid industrial snacks and want to make something healthy for your family instead, these energy bites are a perfect solution even when you don’t have much time.
We absolutely love snacks like this that manage to combine protein, carbs, and healthy fat into delicious bite-sized pieces. You will need rolled oats, almond butter, and maple syrup—that’s all! Oats are a whole grain that will keep you satisfied for a long time. Almond butter adds healthy fats as well as Vitamin E, potassium, calcium, and other minerals into the mix. And maple syrup is there to spice things up in the most beautiful way. This natural sweetener balances the flavor of oats and almond butter and you will love it.
Mix together 1 cup of oats that you previously toasted in a pan, 6 tablespoons almond butter, and 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Use a blender to create a compact mixture then create balls with your palms. Store in the fridge before serving.
