Low FODMAP Cinnamon Protein Energy Bites Recipe
1/3 cup Oats (quick)
1/4 cup Oat Flour
1/4 cup Ground Flax Seed
2 tbsps Chia Seeds
1 1/2 tsps Cinnamon
1/2 cup Almond Butter
1/4 cup Maple Syrup
1 tbsp Unsweetened Almond Milk (optional; if needed)
In a large mixing bowl combine quick oats, oat flour, protein powder, ground flax, chia seeds and cinnamon. Fold in the almond butter and maple syrup until a thick dough forms. If it is too thick to work with, add the almond milk.
Use a tablespoon to scoop out dough and roll into balls, approximately 1-inch in diameter. Chill in the fridge for at least 20 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
Keep energy bites in the fridge for up to seven days or freezer for up to three months. Always serve chilled.
One serving is equal to one ball.
Use sunflower seed butter or pumpkin seed butter instead of almond butter. Use coconut milk instead of almond milk.
This recipe was developed and tested using a plant-based protein powder.
No Maple Syrup
Use honey instead.
Use certified gluten-free quick oats.
No Quick Oats
For best results, these balls need a smaller oat-texture. If you substitute with rolled oats, pulse a few times in a food processor to chop them into a quick oats texture.
No Protein Powder
Use more oat flour instead.
