These No-bake Power Bites are just the PERFECT nourishing quick snack that provides a dose of fiber, healthy fats, and protein! The combination of oats, peanut butter, cinnamon, and chocolate chips can really help satisfy sweet cravings as well.  These are a minimal effort grab-and-go snack option that you can get creative with.  Recently, I decided to throw in some Vital Proteins collagen powder into the recipe since their collagen products are so versatile and can be mixed into meals, drinks, and snack recipes like this one!
