No Bake Chocolate Chip Protein Bites for National Chocolate Chip Day

SHARE THIS PAGE:

So, the timing of this post is quite good for our household…as the last weeks of school are now upon us, and between concerts, field trips, end of year school projects & events, the normal stuff of work, and a daunting new project, I find I’m living with this constant sense that I’m forgetting something  terribly important. Having some decent snacks to grab for the kids (and us) as we manage these next weeks is important. This 1 bowl, easy measure, no bake, delicious Chocolate Chip Protein Bites Recipe is a very good thing right now. While these tasty bites aren’t designed to be a meal replacements, I’m open to that possibility.

Oh, and it’s National Chocolate Chip Day today!

The Recipe:

No Bake Chocolate Chip Protein Bites Ingredients Fillmore Container1Measure & Mix these dry ingredients in a large bowl:

  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts
  • 1/2 Cup Sunflower Seeds (roasted, unsalted)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Coconut (Flakes or Shredded or a mix)
  • 1/2 Cup Dried Chopped Cranberries
  • 1/2 Cup Ground Flax Seed
  • 1 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips (We prefer a mix: dark chocolate morsels and some minis)

 

Add the following ingredients and mix well:

  • 1/2 Cup Maple Syrup (the real stuff!)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Creamy Nut Butter (natural, unsalted)

After everything is mixed well, roll small balls like you would with cookie dough – either with your hands or starting with a small scoop. If your mixture is feeling dry (natural peanut butters can vary in moisture content) you may add more maple syrup. Store them in the refrigerator. My batch filled our 64oz Cracker Jar perfectly!

This recipe can be adjusted to your liking since there isn’t any processing or baking – so if you want to use gluten free, sugar free, GMO free versions of any of the ingredients, or if you want to bump up the portion of certain items, you may. You just might need to adjust for moisture so that the bites don’t fall apart.

What’s your favorite go-to healthy snack when life gets a little crazy?
