It’s sweetened with maple syrup so it’s vegan! You can use honey if you want to swap it out. I also used crunchy peanut butter. Something about those crunchy bits make it  SO much better in energy bites. Also, I always ground up my own oat flour with raw oats in my blender. Super easy!

Chia Seeds are loaded with essential fatty acids (omega-3), fiber, antioxidants and protein! 2 tbsp contains about 4g of protein, 9g fat, 12g carbs and 11g fiber! It’s also got lots of vitamins and minerals. Definitely a superfood that works well in a variety of recipes – in energy bites, oatmeal, smoothies or on top of toast! Get creative widdit!
