Glow on the Go with Collagen Energy Bites

Don't let a busy schedule get you down! When your days are long, don't lose your shine. These chocolate collagen energy bites are the perfect snack to help you glow on the go. 
We liken these convenient bites to a brownie, but with superpowers. They are chocolatey, chewy and packed with nutrients. Your body gets a boost while your sweet tooth gets satisfied. 

Here's all the power these little snacks are packing:

  • 100% Bovine Collagen Protein: Collagen is essential for healthy skin, nails, hair and joints. Each tiny bite delivers more than 5 grams of pure, pharmaceutical-grade protein thanks to ProGlow YOUTHFUL. So when you reach for a second, third or even fourth bite, know you're getting healthy protein every time!
  • Healthy fats: Ground flaxseeds contain omega-3 fatty acids, which deliver a rainbow of benefits for your body and mind. Omega-3 fatty acids help ease anxiety, reduce inflammation, protect your skin and so much more.
  •  Fiber: Medjool dates are not only full of nutrients, but they deliver a healthy dose of fiber wherever they go. Fiber is important to beat bloating, combat inflammation and keep your digestive system moving and grooving.
  • Energy-Boosting Carbs: Carbs are our friend! They give us the energy to make it through intense workouts and busy days. These little bites have the perfect amount of healthy carbs to give your brain a wake-up call and your body a boost.

Chocolate Collagen Energy Bites Recipe

collagen energy bites

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup raw, unsalted pumpkin seeds

  • 1 cup raw flaxseeds

  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates, packed

  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder, plus more for rolling

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2 cups ProGlow YOUTHFUL collagen 

  • 1 banana

Instructions

  1. Grind the pumpkin and flax seeds in a high-speed blender.

  2. Combine the ground seeds, Medjool dates and cocoa powder in a food processor until the mixture is finely ground and feels like wet sand.

  3. Add the sea salt, vanilla extract and banana into the food processor and mix until thoroughly combined.

  4. Time to get messy! Transfer the dough from the food processor into a large mixing bowl and add in ProGlow YOUTHFUL collagen. Use your hands to incorporate the collagen into the batter. The dough will be very sticky from the collagen.

  5. Add 1/4 cup of cocoa powder into an empty bowl for rolling.

  6. Scoop 1 tablespoon of batter at a time and form into a ball. Roll in the cocoa powder to coat. Repeat until the batter is all used up. (If the batter becomes too sticky, place in the fridge for 15 minutes before continuing to roll.)

  7. Arrange the coated energy bites on a plate in a single layer. Place the plate in the freezer for at least 1 hour or until the balls are frozen.

  8. Once frozen, transfer the collagen bites to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
