Ingredients

  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1-½ cups old fashioned oats 
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • ⅓ cup dried cherries
  • 1 scoop collagen peptides, or protein powder (optional)

Directions

  1. To a large bowl add peanut butter, honey, oats, chia seeds, and collagen powder. Mix together with a spoon.
  2. Scoop out a heaping tablespoon of the oat mixture and roll into a ball. 
  3. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Recipe Notes

  1. If your oatmeal bite mixture is too dry, as in it won't stick together when you squeeze it together, you can add in a tablespoon more of peanut butter at a time. Alternatively if it is too sticky, add in 1/4 cup of oats at a time until it is workable enough.
