Less Naked Energy Bites

I love Benchmark workouts. Tonight at CrossFit Gamma we are doing Fran. I know, one of the most beloved and yet despised workouts of all time.

In honor of this festivious occasion, I wanted to bring in some tasty treats for the athletes. A little post-workout pick me up, if you will. 

I'm lucky enough to have partnered with the amazing folks at Naked Nutrition. I am obsessed with their products, they are all incredibly clean, naturally sourced, full of everything athletes need and absolutely nothing that they don't. Nutrition with nothing to hide. 

If you're looking for a tasty protein, I recommend the Less Naked Strawberry Whey. The amino acid profile is out of this world. But check out their pea protein, casein, and their creatine, too! Use code PETITE for 10% off and free shipping. 


Less Naked Energy Bites
Makes 18 Bites

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Less Naked Strawberry Whey (about 58g)
  • 1 1/2 cup oats
  • 3 tablespoons honey, melted
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, softened
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon 
  • 1/3 cup pepitas
Directions

Blend all ingredients together well with a wooden spoon. Store in the fridge for about 30 minutes, this allows everything to cool and makes rolling them into balls much easier! Roll those puppies up with your hands. Roll into 18 1" size balls. Store in the fridge for up to a week. Or share with friends and watch them disappear! 

These are a perfect pre-training, during training or post-training snack to tide you over between meals.
