Kick Tail DELISH Energy Bites – Clean Eating

These were CRAZY easy to make. My kids did most of the work! We got a bit jazzy and changed up the recipe. We voted in our house which was the best!

SUPER NUTRITIOUS. CLEAN. I’ll be eating these on the bike during Ironman Arizona training.

  • 1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used the quick cook)
  • 2/3 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped “something” apple, apricot, cranberry, blueberry, etc (optional)
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds (optional)

Instructions

  1. Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.
  2. Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like. (Mine were about 1″ in diameter.) Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
  3. Per 1 ball= 92 calories, 5g fat, 11g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 2g protein, 16mg sodium, 6g sugar

Notes

Spinach Muffins

My grandson calls these Incredible Hulk muffins. He loves them, he obviously doesn't know there's spinach in them! And they are only about 100 calories each!

Ingredients

  • 2 C. whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 C. unsalted butter
  • 3/4 C. milk of choice
  • 1/2 C. honey (I use raw organic)
  • 1 large banana
  • 6 oz. baby spinach
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350. Either line 18 muffin pan with liners (makes 18 muffins) or spray with cooking spray.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Melt butter. Blend spinach, banana, honey, milk, egg, vanilla and melted butter until pureed. I used my ninja and it worked great.
  4. Pour the puree into the dry ingredients and mix just until combined, don't overmix.
  5. Spoon into prepared muffin pans. Bake 18-22 minutes until firm but not browning.
  6. Cool and enjoy!
