used my favorite protein powder for these

Protein Energy Bites?! Yessss please!! Okay, so summer is literally just around the corner and to be honest, I need a little balance in my life. I have always had a bad sweet tooth! (hence the reason I like to bake so much)

If you read my “about me” section tho, you know that while I love baking and photography. I also have a love for fitness. I am actually a certified personal trainer thru NASM. My fitness love is Powerlifting. I have done multiple USAPL meets and absolutely love love lifting heavy! With that journey has come a passion for counting my macronutrients (carbs, fats and proteins) to help me reach my goals.

I had my sweet chunky, baby boy back in October 2020. 6 months later, I am just now getting back into a consistent regime of working out and counting macros. So of course, the baking has been quite a challenge for me because I LOVE sweets lol

I made these protein energy bites the other day to help me with my sweet tooth fix, and I guarantee they will help you with yours as well!! The day before I made these, I made my Nutella Cookies and these bites (for me anyways) were comparable to how satisfying they were!

Personally I love to use 1st Phorm protein for all of my bakes. I have used their protein and other supplements for over 2 years now. I haven’t quite found another company that makes better quality products.

Key tips for making the best of your bites:

  • I use a food scale to measure out my ingredients to help me stay consistent with the macronutrients. It makes it easier to track my food. (even a gram of fat over is 9 calories 😬 so I try to stay as consistent as I can with my measurements)
  • Measure out 20g of mixture to make your balls, this is also about a tablespoon size
  • store in a covered container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days
  • Macronutrients can vary depending on which brands you use, but mine were: 10g carbs, 4g protein, 3g fat for one bite

Protein Energy Bites

Perfect little bite of energy, full of protein. A good healthy alternative to help feed that sweet tooth!! I use it for when I am craving sweets and it is so satisfying but also keeps you on track!
Servings 20 bites
Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 0 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 scoop protein
  • 110 g peanut butter I use a food scale to measure out my PB; this is roughly estimated to just under 1/2 a cup.
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  • add all ingredients to a bowl and mix together; I used a rubber spatula to mix and it made it easier to mix and scrape away from sides of the bowl
  • Take 1 tbsp, or 20g worth of the mixture (again, I used a food scale here to make sure that I each bite was the same macronutrients) and roll into a ball
  • Set in a container and store in the fridge to munch on when that sweet tooth kicks in!

Notes

  • you can find the protein I like to bake with and use in my protein recipes HERE; I have tried different proteins over the years and have been on this one for over 2 years now and it has the best flavor and not that chalky protein after taste.
  • Store in fridge for a few days (if they last that long lol)
  • Calories and macronutrients will depend on what brands you use. 
  • Macronutrients per bite I calculated were:  10g carbs / 4g protein / 3g fat
  • I used white chocolate wonderful peanut butter
  • If its still a little crumbly, add a little more honey to the mix until it sticks together well.
