Protein Packed Energy Bites

I have a new snack recipe for you!   Protein Packed Energy Bites.  These Protein Packed Energy Bites get a lot of their protein from quinoa.  Quinoa is one of the only complete plant based proteins.  In addition to the quinoa, I have also added some seeds.  These healthy energy bites are healthy and super easy to make.  They would make a great pre or post workout snack.

Protein Packed Energy Bites

These energy bites are vegan and gluten free.  I used quinoa flakes which are similar to quick oats in texture.  If you didn’t want to use the quinoa flakes, you can probably use quick oats in their place.  Nuts may also be a good sub for those that are grain free.  If you like energy bites, you may also like my grain free energy bites or my 3 ingredient energy bites.
