Chocolate Chia Peanut Butter bites
Want a quick snack, full of protein and fiber? Need something quick to grab in the middle of the night when you're feeding your baby? Have a craving for something sweet? Want a post-workout snack?
Chia seeds are a great addition here. I usually add them to anything I'm baking. So many benefits - high in Omega 3, fiber, protein, calcium, iron and antioxidants to name a few.
And these little bites are awesome!!
•⅓ cup almonds
•¾ cup pitted dates (about 13 dates).
•⅔ cup old-fashioned oats

- Pulse almonds in blender or food processor until they reach a fine crumb. Pour crumbs into a medium mixing bowl.
- Blend dates until they reach a paste-like consistency. Add to bowl. Add teaspoon of water as necessary.
- Mix together and form into balls. If mixture sticks to your hands, rub a little butter or non stick spray on them.
Forms about 13 bites.
Keep in fridge for a quick snack or pop into the freezer for later!
Your kids will love them too!
