Raw Protein Bites (With Hidden Veggies)

The other day, the neighbor kids came over while I was making some snacks. I thought that would be great market research, so I gave each of them one. They ate it and said, "oh these are good." I told them they were also healthy and had vegetables in them. One of the boys went outside and told my son, "Those things your mom made were good, until she told me they have vegetables in them."
Yep, plenty of them including: pumpkin, butternut squash, berries, rhubarb, yellow pepper and more!!! 

Score one for mom!

This recipe can be made with shelf stable ingredients that store well. Something I try to keep a big stock of in case of an emergency.

Raw Protein Bites

 (Made with Blendfresh Orange)
(Made with Blendfresh Red)
1 cup oats
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup chocolate chips or dried fruit
6 T Powdered Peanut Butter (or 1/2 cup of the real stuff)
1/3 cup raw honey or maple syrup
1 scoop Blendfresh Raw Protein Powder
1 scoop Blendfresh Fruits and Veggies.. any color
1 scoop Blendfresh Fiber

Put the PB powder, Blendfresh Fruits and Veggies and Fiber in a medium bowl. Add enough water to (approximately 1/3 cup) make a peanut butter consistency. Then add the honey. Mix well. Finally add the oats, coconut, protein powder and chocolate chips and mix well. It will be thick, and hands work well for this. Shape the mix into balls of whichever size you choose. You can eat right away. Store in the refrigerator.
