When you need “a little something sweet” why not boost your nutrition at the same time? These peanut butter booster bites do just that- boosting your intake of fiber, protein, and magnesium- with chia seeds, flax meal, and roasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas). Swapping out most of the peanut butter for peanut butter powder in this recipe offers a significant fat and calorie savings, plus another way to use an often-overlooked ingredient in your pantry closet.
