Energy Bites

Energy Bites
Nut butter, oats, nuts, dried fruit, honey and other mix-in’s of your choice rolled into a delicious yet healthy bite size treat. There’s just enough healthy fat, protein and fiber to give you long lasting “energy” and help curb your appetite. The perfect pick me up breakfast, snack or desert for both adults and the kiddos.

I am so addicted to these no bake energy bites! Imagine being able to eat peanut butter cookie dough without all the guilt 😉 Well this isn’t exactly cookie dough (no flour here), but they do have a similar nutty, sweet and scrumptious taste. These energy bites require no baking, can be made in minutes and put in the freezer for a quick snack when needed (or to help satisfy that sweet tooth). There’s just enough healthy fat, protein and fiber to give you long lasting “energy” and help curb your appetite.

They also make a great and healthy snack for your kids or babies. Our little Noelle just loves munching on them.  🙂  I typically give her some that are easier for her to chew with less nuts and she does great with them.   Easy to pack up in a snack bag and go! They’re also perfect for the lunch box and much cheaper than packaged bars. What makes them fun is how versatile they can be with whatever flavors and fillings you like. Get creative! I’ve seen some other recipes for Nutella, Almond Joy or Trail Mix energy bites. Yum yum!
