I love this recipe because it’s lightly sweetened so you’re not getting a ton of extra sugar like most power bite recipes. There are just a couple of tablespoons of pure maple syrup and chocolate chips to sweeten these up.
These bites are the perfect after-school snack, a little mid-day treat, or take them with you when you’re on-the-go for a healthy, but yummy, snack on the run.
The great thing about these bites is the fiber content. It is why they are so filling. With oats, chia seeds, and flax meal you’re getting lots of good-for-you fiber. Fiber has so many benefits! It’s one of my weight loss hacks that actually works!
