Almond Butter Protein Bites

These protein bites have become our weekday breakfast of choice. They are fast, delicious, and healthy. You can make a batch at the beginning of the week and enjoy them all week long. Add a little fruit and you've got yourself a well-balanced snack to start your day. These fill you up and keep you going until lunchtime!

Almond Butter Protein Bites
1 cup oats (I use quick oats)
2/3 cup coconut
1/2 cup almond butter
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1/3 cup creamed honey
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes.

Roll about 2-3 tablespoons into balls with 1-inch diameter. I use a small cookie scoop to get a consistent amount. Squeeze the mixture together as you roll into balls.

Store in the refrigerator in a sealed container.
