Power Bites with Soya Flakes and Almonds

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2013 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com

Pop a couple of these delicious power balls before workout and you’ll get some protein, fiber, and magnesium along with omega-3 essential fatty acids and a load of antioxidants to fuel you but not fill you. They are great as on-the-go breakfast or for afternoon snack. Soya flakes can be replaced with oat or spelt flakes.

  • 100 g Soya flakes
  • 150 g Almonds, toasted
  • 3 tbsp Golden flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp Vanilla protein powder
  • 100 g Raisins
  • 4 tbsp Mango puree
  • Blanched almonds, chopped for coating
  • Dried coconut flakes for coating
  • Golden flaxseed for coating
  1. Place soya flakes, toasted almonds, flaxseed, protein powder and raisins in a food processor or blender. Pulse until well ground, then add in mango puree, stir until the mixture is well combined.
  2. Cover with a plastic wrap and chill for 2-3 hours. Remove and shape into balls. Coat the power bites with almonds, coconut flakes and flaxseed. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

Better than any store-bought power bar, by far! These look so welcoming and delicious packed with all of those wonderful ingredients.

motherrimmy 21/3/13 02:23

I google soy flakes and there appears to be a wide variety. Do you think quinoa flakes would work? I have those already in my pantry. I'll give it a try and see what happens.

Claudia 21/3/13 03:03

I'm printing this now. My workouts are not terribly stressful (tee hee) but oh my - I think my husband would go mad for these - and still feel virtuous with this delectable treat.

Kiran @ KiranTarun.com 21/3/13 04:37

I've never had soya flakes before, but that power bites is definitely tasty looking :)

Abbe@This is How I Cook 21/3/13 04:56

Power bites. I need these right now! Perfect!

mjskit 21/3/13 05:03

With the week I'm having I could definitely use some of these delicious power bites! I have to admit that I don't have even half of those ingredients in my pantry and never have had - but... things change. :)

Angie's Recipes 21/3/13 05:38

@motherrimmy Yes, I have even thought about making some more using popped quinoa or amaranth.

Shirley Tay 21/3/13 07:08

Elisabeth Foodandthrift 22/3/13 22:35

Pop a couple?...no way can you stop at just a couple of these yummy and most amazing cute little power balls; how about half a dozen, or more. Just be careful that someone out there doesn't 'market' these most FAB power balls. They would be a winner for sure:)

Georgia | The Comfort of Cooking 22/3/13 23:03

These would be amazing as a post-workout snack. Delish recipe, Angie!

chewy and crunchy and healthful and filling--these are pretty spectacular little treats!

The Café Sucré Farine 23/3/13 21:41

These are so fun Angie but I'm not sure if I would want to eat them or put them in a bowl for decoration on my coffee table as they're so pretty! :)

Balvinder Ubi 24/3/13 01:51

Love these! I have to look for soya flakes.

dentistvschef 24/3/13 15:17

Gosh, i can barely feel the crunch.....
btw, what possibly became the glue except the mango puree???

Alida 25/3/13 22:31

These look wonderful Angie. They would look great on the table at a dinner party. Very elegant and inviting little bites ;-)

Patty 25/3/13 23:31

Beautiful healthy snack -would love a few of these in my golf bag this weekend;-)

Cass @foodmyfriend 27/3/13 03:20

They sell something similar at my gym for $4.95 a ball. These look heaps better and I'm sure are much more natural Might have to make myself a batch!

Amelia 27/3/13 15:05

Hi Angie,this power bites very interesting. Something new to me, thanks for sharing this awesome recipe.

Best regards.

Rachel O. 29/3/13 00:18

Thank you thank you for sharing!!! I've been looking for some good power bites like this!

Kelly Mulcair Registered Nutritionist. Content © 2011 Trinity Nutrition. 1/4/13 02:25

These power bites are so intriguing to me... I wonder if you still pick up any of the texture from the soy flakes once ground? I love the use of the mango puree here - it must add beautifully to the flavour. Wonderful recipe Angie.

Norma Chang 15/4/13 16:33

Love these power bites and best of all no cooking.
