Quinoa Peanut Butter Bites

The amount of peanut butter I go through is really pretty ridiculous. Anyway I made these little guys today and they are pretty darn delish. The ingredients are really clean and the chocolate satisfies my everlasting sweet tooth! Did I mention they are packed full of protein!

Ingredients
  • 1 cup puffed quinoa
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 3-4 tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 tbsp crushed peanuts (optional, for extra crunch if using smooth PB)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • vegan dark chocolate (optional)
  • I added chia seeds 
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, agave and vanilla. If the mixture is too firm, heat it up on the stove a little bit.
  2. Add the puffed quinoa (and peanuts, if using), and stir to combine.
  3. Place mixture in the fridge for 15 minutes to let it firm up.
  4. Remove from fridge, roll into 12 balls, and return to fridge for 15 minutes before serving.
  5. Optional: dip some or all of the balls in dark chocolate.
