Protein Power Bites
Make a batch over the weekend and store in the refrigerator to snack on all week. You can carry these with you to work. The longer they stay out of the fridge the softer they become.
- In a small sauce pan simmer chopped dried apricots in water, stirring frequently and adding more water till fruit is mushy.
- Using a blender or food processor, puree the fruit.
- Stir in uncooked oats, flax meal, coconut and nut butter.
- Add chopped dried cranberries.
- Roll into bite sized balls and refrigerate.
We keep our protein bites in the refrigerator because they seem sweeter when they're cold. They're also less sticky that way.
I use organic, very finely shredded coconut for these. It's almost powdered. If you use a larger texture you may need to use less oats so that everything will still stick together.
