March is National Nutrition Month by Christie Hunter, RD

March is National Nutrition Month so let’s celebrate by going farther with food.  One way to fuel your body better is to include nutrient-dense snacks.  My favorite afternoon snack is one that is high in protein so that I stay more satiated during my time of the day when I am most hungry.  Here is a snack that I can make ahead for me and my family to eat on during the week:

Peanut Butter Energy Bites

  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup flaxseed

Mix all the ingredients together in a medium size bowl. Refrigerate mixture for 20-30 minutes or until chilled. Remove the mixture from the refrigerator and roll into small bite-size balls. Keep balls in the refrigerator until ready to eat.

I hope you enjoy!
