Protein Cookie Energy Bites
I am thrilled to have partnered with Munk Pack to create these delicious double dark chocolate energy bites!
Creating super easy recipes that are tasty, nutritious, and convenient for on the go is what I am all about.
I love having a variety of snacks on hand and this is one of my favorites.
Here are a couple of reasons why I think you will love them too.
These protein bites are:
approx. 18 grams of protein per 3-4 bites
full of ingredients to help your body be fueled for the next adventure
Chocolate has always been one of my favorite ingredients. It tasted even better when it is paired with nut butter (am I right?) Also, the addition of medjool dates make these taste somewhat carmel like too.
They taste just like fresh baked fudgy brownies without all the baking and waiting!
You are going to want to make this recipe very soon!
Okay, so now that I have talked these up I suppose you want the recipe so, here it is!
Here is the Recipe:
Protein Cookie Energy Bites
These delicious little snacks are perfect for a quick pick me up-especially after a long adventure!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
2 Munk Pack Protein Cookies *I used double dark chocolate but the other flavors work great with this recipe too!
4 Medjool Dates (the bigger the better!)
2 tbsp Sprouted Buckwheat Groats I used local Lil Bucks
1 tbsp Coconut Oil or MCT Oil I love Dr. Bronner's unrefined
1 tbsp Nut Butter I used Peanut Butter but I am sure other nut butters or seed butters would be great!
1 tbsp Blackstrap Molasses
1/4 tsp Ceylon Cinnamon I love Simply Organic
1/8 tsp Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
Place all ingredients into a food processor.Process for about 1 min, and check consistency. If needed, pulse for no more than 30 more seconds or until the dough comes together. Do not overmix as the oils will release and be messy!
Yield: This will make 20 bites that weigh 15 grams each or .5 ounces.
These can be stored in the fridge for max 2 weeks. They also freeze well!
I love coming home from a long run and having these ready to snack on!
I find that 2-3 bites is an appropriate serving with how filling these are!
Feel free to add walnuts to make them even more brownie like but I felt that these buckwheat groats added a nice little crunch without being overly nutty since there is already nut butter in the recipe. Mix it up and use a different nut butter or seed butter or try the peanut butter, coconut white chip macadamia, or oatmeal raisin cookies as a base!
Personally, I love the double dark chocolate protein cookies the best for the base of this recipe but the other protein cookie flavors work well too. I have tried the coconut walnut macadamia cookies and subbed an unsweetened homemade cashew butter instead of peanut butter and both were delicious!
Storing these in my Stasher Bag works well so that they are ready to go when I need them.
Where to find Munk Pack Protein Cookies:
