I might not be Martha Stewart, but I’m not that bad of a cook. Over the years I have actually done a pretty good job at it. No one has gotten sick or died. So that has to count for something right? Right.
Well this recipe is no frills, bare bones, easy. So even all of the non-cooks out there can take a stab at it. You don’t even need to turn on the oven. Which is great for you Carrie Bradshaw types that don’t use your kitchen for its intended purpose.
This is my recipe for P-Nutty Power Bites. These are great little snacks to take with you to work for those in-between meals. Or hell, if you’re like me sometimes you miss a meal altogether. These will help tie you over until you are able to take that much needed break.
So, are you ready? Of course you are!!!
P-Nutty Power Bites
The ingredients I use in my bites are: rolled oats, crunchy peanut butter, agave nectar, flax seeds, chia seeds, semi-sweet mini chocolate chips, and coconut flakes. What I like about this recipe is that you can play around with it and add or take away things you might not like. For example, add sunflower seeds or cranberries or remove the coconut flakes.
2 cups of rolled oats
1 cup of crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup of agave nectar (you can also use honey)
1/2 cup of semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup of coconut flakes
2 Tablespoons of flax seeds
1 Tablespoon of chia seeds
Seriously, all you do is put the above ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix them up. That’s it. You are now a cook. How easy was that? Congratulations!!! All kidding aside, you will want to measure all of the ingredients into the bowl and make sure to mix with a spoon until everything is combined together well.
After the ingredients are mixed together, place plastic wrap over the bowl and put in the fridge for 30 minutes. Getting the mixture cold makes it easier to form into bites. You will not want to skip this step. The colder the mixture the better.
Once your mixture is cold, you will want to take about 1-1/2 tablespoons at a time and form into small balls or bites. If you don’t want to get your hands messy you can use a small scoop to help you form the bites. I like to place the bites in a mini muffin tin as I make them. This also helps me make all of them evenly sized. Continue to form the bites until all of your mix is used. This will make roughly 20-24 bites.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!!! Bon appetite!
