Energy Bites That Are Saving My Sweet Tooth

 If you're anything like me, your sweet tooth is a whole problem. And it is hard to control. I promise if I could eat dessert every night and there weren't any consequences from that decision I would be all over it. Instead, I try to buy foods or make snacks that naturally answer my sweet tooth's calling and contain some kind of health benefit. Added bonus if I can take them on the go. Enter my peanut butter chocolate chip energy bites.

I came across this recipe recently and really liked the idea of a healthier version of a cookie and then I thought, "I bet I could add some protein to this and really make it worth my while." I found Olly Plant Power Protein Mix at Target and knew it was a winner for me because of its plant-based protein. I have been incorporating more plant based protein into my meals and snacks because this type of protein is less fattening than some animal protein can be, but still gives you the protein you need. And having a strong presence of protein in your diet is essential to weight management and an overall healthy lifestyle. Olly's plant-based protein has 18g of protein in one packet. Talk about wins all around! Check out the recipe below for this snack that is both delicious and nutritious! 
Ingredients
1 1/4 cup of Old Fashioned Oats
1/3 cup of Olly Plant Power Protein Powder
2/3 cup of Natural Peanut Butter
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips
1/3 cup of honey

Instructions
1. Add all ingredients together in a 
medium sized mixing bowl.
2. Mix them together using a spoon or 
baking spatula.
3. Once everything is evenly mixed, put the 
bowl in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
4. After 30-ish minutes remove the mix from
the fridge.
5. Shape the mixture into bite size balls.
6. Store them in the fridge in a container as 
you snack.
