Yogurt Iced Power Bites
These Yogurt Iced Power Bites are no joke when it comes to power thanks to the addition of TSP. By providing 3 grams of protein per bite these are the perfect after workout snack to help rebuild those muscles. They would also be a good part of a breakfast on-the-go or an easy after school snack that young helpers can help make! Try dipping the bites in the yogurt to make granola pops or leave off the drizzle entirely.
Power Bites Ingredients 1/2 cup TSP
2 tablespoons honey
½ cup old fashioned oats
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Yogurt Icing Ingredients 1 tablespoon butter
1 container vanilla greek yogurt
2 cups powdered sugar
Instructions To Prepare Bites: Preheat Oven to 400 degrees and cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. In a small bowl combine ½ cup TSP with 2 tablespoons honey. Spread TSP on cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Stir the TSP every 2 minutes. Transfer into a medium bowl with remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Shape into 1-inch balls with your hands and set them on a plate or in a container. Move the bites to the refrigerator and allow to harden for at least 1 hour.
To Prepare Coating Add butter to a small saucepan and melt over medium-low heat. When melted, whisk in the yogurt and powdered sugar until smooth. Take off the heat and allow to cool slightly. Transfer the coating into a zip top bag. Cut a very small tip off of the bottom of the bag to make a piping bag. Drizzle the bites however you would like. Transfer bites into container and store in freezer.
Notes Serve cold.
