I always have some kind of energy bite in my fridge; they are my favorite pre-workout snack.

I’m a morning gym person. And if I don’t get there before work, I won’t get there at all. But, I also can’t eat a big breakfast before I workout. In fact, I can barely eat anything wtihout my stomach being wrecked. So, I’ll eat one of these peanut butter protein bliss bites before I head to the gym and it’s just the amount of food and energy that I need to get through my workout.

Now everyone is different. I’m not saying that one bliss bite will be perfect for you before a workout, just because it is for me. It’s taken me a long time of trial and error to figure out what works best for me as an early morning pre-workout snack; and it is something that you will have to figure out for yourself.

But I highly suggest giving these a try.

A pre-workout protein and energy boost - Peanut Butter Protein Bliss Bites require 6 ingredients, are easy to make, and can double as a healthy dessert!
Recipe type: Snack
Serves: 28 bites
Ingredients
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup flax meal
  • 1 packet Aloha vanilla protein powder (1.3 ounces - approximately ¼ cup)
  • 1 cup dates, pitted
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • ¾ cup natural peanut butter
Instructions
  1. Add oats to the food processor. Pulse a few times to break down the oats. There can still be some large pieces; you do not need to make this into oat flour.
  2. Add the rest of your ingredient to the food processor and process until a dough forms. You will need to scrape down the sides as you're processing.
  3. Using your hands, roll the dough into 1 inch balls.
  4. Freeze for 30 minutes to set. Store in the fridge.

Ball so hard. That sh*t cray.  <—– Also for those you don’t know, I’m Kanye obsessed.

    OK. I need to try and see if the child will eat these. Sometimes I wish I were the mom who snuck the healthy into food – – but I’m not 🙂 I don’t want to risk breaking her trust so I will have to tell her there are dates in there 🙂 I bet you can’t taste them though??
