Hey everyone! Today, I’m excited to share with you one of my favorite healthy snacks – skin-boosting energy bites. These bites are not only delicious but also packed with protein, fiber, and collagen. They’re perfect for a quick snack or a post-workout boost. Let’s dive into the recipe and learn how to make these nutritious treats.


Ingredients and Their Health Benefits

Before we get into the recipe, let’s take a closer look at the ingredients and their health benefits:

  • Rolled Oats: A great source of fiber and complex carbohydrates, oats help keep you full longer and provide steady energy.
  • Almond Butter: Rich in healthy fats, protein, and fiber, almond butter supports heart health and provides sustained energy. I love using Justin’s Almond Butter because it’s made without added sugar.
  • Honey Substitute: Adds natural sweetness without the extra sugar, making these bites a great option for those watching their sugar intake.
  • Chia Seeds: Packed with fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and various micronutrients, chia seeds support digestive health and provide a protein boost.
  • Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips: These add a touch of sweetness and a chocolatey flavor without the extra sugar.
  • Collagen Peptides (Sparkle Wellness Skin Boost Plus): Collagen is crucial for maintaining healthy skin, hair, and nails. The addition of collagen peptides helps replenish collagen levels, especially important as we age. Sparkle Wellness Skin Boost Plus Collagen Peptides are high-quality and also include vitamin C and hyaluronic acid for extra skin health benefits.

Recipe: High Protein, High Fiber Skin-Boosting Energy Bites

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Mixture:
    • Start by adding 1 cup of rolled oats to a large mixing bowl. Oats provide a hearty base and are a great source of fiber.
    • Add 1/2 cup of almond butter to the bowl. This will help bind the mixture together and adds healthy fats and protein.
    • Pour in 1/4 cup of honey substitute. This natural sweetener adds a touch of sweetness without the added sugar.
    • Add 2 tablespoons of chia seeds to the bowl. Chia seeds boost the fiber and protein content of the bites.
    • Add 1/4 cup of sugar-free chocolate chips for a hint of chocolate flavor.
    • Finally, add 4 scoops of Sparkle Wellness Skin Boost Plus Collagen Peptides. These collagen peptides are unflavored, so they won’t alter the taste but will add significant skin health benefits.
  2. Mix the Ingredients:
    • Mix all the ingredients together until well combined. The honey and almond butter will help hold everything together and add a natural sweetness.
  3. Form the Bites:
    • Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls. You should get about 12 to 15 energy bites from this recipe.
    • Place the energy bites on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Chill the Bites:
    • While you can eat the bites immediately, I recommend popping them in the fridge for about 30 minutes. This helps them firm up and enhances the texture.
  5. Enjoy:
    • Once chilled, your energy bites are ready to enjoy. They make a perfect snack or post-workout boost, packed with protein, fiber, and collagen.
