Energizing Nutta Butta Bites Peanut Butter Balls Recipe

Makes approximately 23 peanut butter balls


  • 2 cups quinoa flakes
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon coconut butter (I used Nikki’s Coconut Butter Dark Chocolate Fudge)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • ½ cup smooth peanut butter
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder


var googletag = googletag || {};
googletag.cmd = googletag.cmd || [];
(function() {
var gads = document.createElement(‘script’);
gads.async = true;
gads.type = ‘text/javascript’;
var useSSL = ‘https:’ == document.location.protocol;
gads.src = (useSSL ? ‘https:’ : ‘http:’) +
var node = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0];
node.parentNode.insertBefore(gads, node);

googletag.cmd.push(function() {
googletag.defineSlot(‘/268437716/In-article_Box1_336x280’, [336, 280], ‘div-gpt-ad-1451354753139-0’).addService(googletag.pubads());

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1451354753139-0’); });



Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir it up!

If you like less texture, blend up the quinoa flakes and pumpkin seeds in a food processor/blender until they are more finely chopped.

Once combined, take the mixture and roll into 1.5 inch peanut butter balls.

I store them in a glass container in the fridge and they make the perfect snack for pre- or post-workout, to add into kids’ lunches, or snacks on the go!
