Oatmeal Peanut Butter Energy Bites


If you are like most parents, you were up very early with the kiddos the day of daylight savings time. So this was a little number that we put together this morning, this little snack is loaded with oatmeal, peanut butter and ground walnuts. These little bites have approximately 2 grams of protein each, so not much or a protein snack but an energy snack for your kiddos! You could add more protein,  if you add some protein (1-2 scoops) powder into the mix. This recipe makes 15 energy bite balls. Enjoy!
