ENERGY BITES: Choco Banana Nutter

  • 1 cup Oatmeal
  • 1 Ripe Banana
  • ½ cup Almonds (or other nuts)
  • ¼ cup Raisin/Craisin
  • 4 tbs Peanut Butter
  • 2 tbs water (may be used if mixture is too dry)
  • 1 packet Shakeology Chocolate (vegan or regular)
  • 1 cup crushed nuts for coating

In a food processor, pulse: banana, oatmeal, almonds, craisin/raisin to coarse bits.
Add in peanut butter and Shakeology. Pulse again until all ingredients are mixed - visually you should see it balled together to a thick paste.
Test the mixture for consistency. It should be slightly wet and can be rolled into balls. If the mixture is too dry, add in the water, 1 tbs at a time.  Add oatmeal if the mixture is too wet or too soft. 
After you shaped them into balls, roll them in the crushed nuts to coat the outside.

Lay the balls out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and put in the freezer until harden. Recommend storage in the fridge about 1-2 week. 
NEVER leave the bites inside a hot car! If you are going to the gym, bring them with you in the bag.
