The almond flavor in these energy bites is off the charts. Rich, dense and chewy, these protein bites are a good post workout treat. Definitely will help those trying to gain weight/put on mass (hint: this is not a low calorie or weight loss type of snack).

 

Ingredients 

  • 3 cups raw oats, soaked overnight (or 2 cups oat flour - we used a coffee grinder to grind whole rolled oats)

  • 2 eggs

  • 3 cups prunes
