Espresso Happy Body Bites

So you're thinking about a snack to eat before the Monument 10K race and are considering the ole' banana + peanut butter + jelly with a cup of coffee breakfast.

One word....BORING.

Pop a few of these tasty treats and you'll be well on the way to your fastest PR ever!

Recipe makes 12 bites:

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter (crunchy or creamy)

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter powder ( I use Bell plantation PB2)

  • 1/2 cup old fashion rolled oats (any brand will do)

  • 1/4 cup cacao powder ( Navitas Naturals certified organic)

  • 1/4 cup agave nectar- add more for increased desired sweetness ( Organic Raw blue agave by Wholesome, you can certainly use honey or maple syrup)

  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds (Navitas Naturals or RVA's local Health Warrior brand)

  • 2 Tbsp finely ground espresso beans

**Option: If not using for a pre-race snack add 1 Tbsp of ground flax meal for some extra fiber.

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. It may help to melt the peanut butter before mixing. If you find your mixture is TOO dry, then add water 1 Tbsp at a time, the chia seeds and PB powder absorb water at different rates.

Refridgerate to cool, then pop and enjoy!
