I Love Food Friday: Peanut Butter Cup Bites

Inspired by Tone It Up's recipe, I made a few changes and created these delicious treats!!  The whole family loves them and no one can seem to get enough!  Good thing it made for a pretty big batch!

1c Peanut Butter (I used Smart Balance, Creamy)
1c Agave (or honey)
1c Oats (I used the Instant Old Fashioned, Walmart brand)
1c Chopped Dried Apricots
1c Sliced Almonds (I just threw 2 handfuls of whole, raw almonds into a little food chopper)
1Tbsp Flax Seed
2 Scoops Chocolate Protein Powder
A Few Tbsp Water (if needed to help moisten the batch)

Heat (on low) the Peanut Butter and Agave on the stove until warm and runny.  Turn off heat and add all remaining ingredients.  Roll into balls (when cool enough to handle) and refrigerate at least 45 minutes.  Store in a ziplock bag.  Enjoy!  (Approx. 100 calories a piece).
