Peanut butter & co Chocolate Peanut Butter Dream is Dreamy

I think you all know by now how much I love chocolate peanut butter. I liked them on Facebook and they often post recipes. I made the Triple Chocolate Energy Bites from Kitchen Meets Girl and I just have to share:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup chocolate peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cocoa powder, for dusting
  1. Stir all ingredients except for the cocoa powder together in a medium bowl until combined. Allow the mixture to chill for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Once chilled, roll into small balls - I used a 1" cookie scoop to form mine, but you can make yours whatever size you like. Roll formed balls into cocoa powder if desired.
  2. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to one week.
The only things that I did differently was I skipped the vanilla (it was sweet enough, I can't believe I am saying that) and added a scoop of chocolate protein powder (Designer Whey). The problem will be trying not to eat the whole bowl!
