Pistachios can help to keep you in running shape. They have been coined "the skinny nut" for good reason. Pistachios are one of the lowest fat, lowest calorie, and highest fiber of any nut. There are 49 pistachios in one ounce serving! Can you believe it? Thus the tasty Peanut Butter Pistachio Energy Bites were born!
These energy bites are packed with protein, healthy fats, and fiber to give you that "stick to your ribs" feeling of fullness. Each bite is naturally sweetened with figs, honey, and coconut. It's a perfect combo of protein and fiber rich carbohydrates that will give you sustained and slow releasing energy to carry you through your training and help to keep your weight in check. Enjoy!
In bowl of food processor, mix figs, peanut butter, honey, coconut, and chia seeds until pureed. Add pistachios and oats and process just until combined.
With a cookie scoop, or spoon, roll mixture into 12 uniform balls. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
