Mix up this recipe when you’re looking for a quick tasty snack on the go.
PEANUT BUTTER TRAIL MIX EDITION
Peanut Butter. Just typing that word makes my mouth water. Who doesn’t love nutter butters? This is a fun recipe that I love to make during my off season. Now this is a somewhat healthy snack as long as you can eat them in moderation… I will not lie, I have eaten an entire batch before. I do not recommend that…
BUT this is a quick and easy recipe if you want a bite on the go that is sweet and packed with protein and energy.
Since there is no baking involved the preparation time is short. Prep time: 20 mins
So if you are looking to try a yummy recipe that takes minimal time, this is a tasty snack! Enjoy them all for yourself, or share! This a great treat to bring to a potluck, BBQ, or event — they will go quickly!
What you will need:
- Oatmeal (I use Quaker Oats)
- Natural Peanut Butter
- Vanilla Protein (I like to use Quest or ISO-100)
- Trail Mix (your choice)
*If you do not like trail mix you can replace this with raisins or semi-sweet chocolate chips (or both)
- Large Bowl
- Wax Paper
- Cookie Sheet
1 c. Peanut Butter
3\4 c. Honey
2 1\4 c. Oats (dry)
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1\4 c. Trail Mix
(or raisin\semi-sweet chips replacement) (I just use Quaker Oats)
In a large bowl mix together oatmeal, protein powder, honey, and peanut butter. Once ingredients are mixed together add trail mix (or replacement) and mix into batch.
Once batch is mixed, use a spoon to measure out a large spoonful. With hands (make sure you wash them lol) roll mixture into a ball and place ball onto wax paper on a cookie sheet. Measurements should make roughly 25 protein bites, dependent on how large each ball is made.
Place in refrigerator for 30–40 mins, and Enjoy! (Don’t eat them all, seriously)
