Vegan Protein Oatmeal Bites
Get ready to fuel your day with our delectable Vegan Protein Oatmeal Bites! These bite-sized wonders are packed with wholesome ingredients that will provide a nourishing boost of energy. With a variety of add-ins to choose from, you can customize each bite to your liking.
To begin, prepare the oatmeal batter, a base that combines the goodness of old-fashioned oats with a touch of flax seeds for added nutritional value. In a small bowl, mix flax seeds with water.
Next, gather the remaining oatmeal batter ingredients. In a blender, combine the old-fashioned oats, pure vanilla extract, organic soymilk, mashed banana, iodized salt, baking soda, baking powder, pure maple syrup, creamy almond butter and ground cinnamon. Blending these ingredients together creates a smooth and luscious batter that forms the base of our protein-packed oatmeal bites.
Now comes the fun part – the add-ins! Personalize your oatmeal bites and enhance their flavor and texture. Fresh blueberries, sliced bananas and raspberries bring bursts of fruity sweetness. Diced apples add a crisp bite, while lemon zest imparts a refreshing tang.
The oatmeal bites bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, a process that takes approximately 15-20 minutes. Once baked, let them cool slightly before enjoying their delightful taste and texture.
These Vegan Protein Oatmeal Bites are not only a tasty treat but also a convenient and nutritious option. They make a perfect on-the-go snack, a satisfying breakfast bite or a pre- or post-workout boost. Packed with plant-based protein and the goodness of whole grains, these bites offer a nourishing and energizing option for any time of the day.
