Who couldn't use a little more energy to get through their day? 🙋🏻♀️ For the past 8 weeks, I have been participating in a test group for a new Open Fit workout program. It's really exciting to be a part of the beginning stages of a new workout program and participating this group has been a great form of exercise accountability. Let's just say, there's nothing that motivates me to stick to a workout routine more than having to submit weekly selfies and measurements. 😬
Five days a week, the Open Fit trainers are introducing me to new moves and workouts that are kicking my butt. I've got sore muscles in places that I didn't even know I had muscles. 💪🏻🤣
I'm doing my best to keep my nutrition on track while I'm in the test group so that I can get the most out of the program. Somedays it's a struggle - but, like I said - I'm doing my best. 💁🏻♀️ The biggest obstacle for me isn't eating healthy meals - it's snacking. I'm trying to train myself to incorporate more healthy snacks like fresh fruits and lean protein into my day instead of reaching for a handful of chocolate chips. 🥕
To help myself avoid unhealthy snacks - I've started stocking my frig with these super delicious s'mores energy bites. They're filled with all the good stuff that I need to keep up my energy levels and a little bit of the sweet stuff too. Just one is enough to fill me up and satisfy my undeniable sweet tooth. I've made several different versions of these little peanut butter balls but I think this one might just be my new favorite.
Check out these amazing ingredients. I mean, how could these NOT turn out to be the most beautiful and amazing little snack bites ever?
S'mores Energy Bites
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup finely crushed graham crackers
2 tablespoons chia seeds
A pinch of sea salt
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup marshmallow bits
Store in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Making s'mores over the campfire is already on my bucket list for summer 2021. While I wait for the ice to melt and the temperatures to rise, I'll have to make my own (indoor) chocolate, peanut butter and marshmallow creations. I imagine that these energy bites are just about as close as you can get to actual s'mores - minus the campfire.
