Holiday treats: No Guilt Chocolate & Protein Brownie Energy Bites

HEY there Flat Abs Family!

Are you ready to make amazing holiday TREATS?! Clean eating has never tasted so good!

Seriously, treats are good and you don’t have to give them up to stay on track with your eating and get results! Because when people think clean eating, they think organic, EXPENSIVE, tasteless food. Right?

Well if that’s what you’re into, by all means. You do whatever makes you happy.

But I personally like food that is delicious, AND that won’t cost me a house payment. You don’t have to be rolling in the dough to be eating healthy. Ok? That is very important. Healthy eating can be tasty, and affordable.

No Bake Energy Bites

(From the Flat Abs Fitness app)

Servings: about 4

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup oats
2/3 cup toasted, sweetened coconut
1/2 cup flax-seed
6 tbsp chocolate chips

Mix peanut butter, honey, and vanilla until it turns into a nice paste. Add the oats, coconut, flax-seed, and chocolate chips. **NOTE: make sure you toast the coconut BEFORE you start to make the bites, or else it will melt the chocolate.

If your mixture isn’t sticky enough, don’t hesitate to add some more honey and peanut butter! You should have a mixture that you can easily roll into balls. You can also add some protein powder if you want to add a little more chocolate (because I USUALLY do.)

Put the mixture in the fridge to let it cool a bit, which will make it easier to roll. Once it’s chilled, roll it into balls and enjoy! Trick your friends and family into eating healthy with this yummy treat:)

No-Bake Protein Brownie Bites

(From the Flat Abs Fitness app)

Servings: about 4

1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup chocolate protein powder
5 Tbsp honey or agave
2 Tbsp peanut or almond butter
2 Tbsp almond milk

Add all ingredients to the bowl and stir until fully incorporated. Depending on the ingredients you used, you may need to add a splash of extra milk or a small sprinkle of coconut flour. The mixture should stick together easily when pressed without being overly sticky.
Using a heaping tablespoon, roll dough between your hands to form balls. Set aside on a plate and repeat with remaining dough. Store balls in an airtight container at room temperature, or in the fridge for extended periods.
If desired, you can roll in chopped almonds, toasted coconut, cocoa powder, etc.
