I train lots of clients at 5 and 5:30 a.m., which often means they don’t eat before they train.
What do you reach for that early that will fuel you but not fill you?
I’ve found the answer…my POWER BITES!
Pop 2-3 of these and you’ll get some good fat, starch and fruit along with omega’s and a boat load of antioxidants to fuel your early a.m. workout or even while you are driving the kids to their after school practices.
These are also great for your kids as they often need some fuel too and sugary drinks and bars full of junk are not the answer!
These NO BAKE bites take about 5 minutes to make and about 10 to chill in the fridge.
2 cups raw oats
1/2 cup Natural Peanut Butter (best not from fridge because it will be more runny making it easy to mix)
3 tablespoons honey or Agave
2 tablespoons Cinnamon (yes I looooove me some cinnamon!)
1/2 cup Chia Seeds (add 1/4 cup water and let sit for a few minutes before mixing, this makes them sticky)
2 tablespoons (melted/warmed) Coconut oil
1/2 cup Un-sweetened Raw Coconut
1/2 cup Dried Blueberries (I love Trader Joe’s brand)
1/4 cup Un-sweetened Apple Sauce
Mix all dry ingredients first then mix in with hands the wet ingredients until blended and sticky enough to mold into little balls. Roll them and place in a a pan or on cookie sheet and put in the fridge. Best eaten slightly cold.
