I have tried so many protein and energy bars that are filled with unrecognizable ingredients. I wanted something that would give me some sugar and protein before a workout.

You will need the following ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Dark chocolate peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp sweetened cacao nibs
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1-2 tbsp coarsely ground flax seed
  • 1 cup quaker oats

Pour 1 cup of oats into a bowl along with the cacao nibs, chia seeds.

Microwave the chocolate peanut butter for 20 seconds so it is soft.

Mix together to form the dough. Roll into round balls. I made 8 balls total.

Then roll the balls in the flax seed. Place in the refrigerator and enjoy.

I also keep a few in the freezer for a late night snack.
