No-Bake Energy Bites
Lately my life has been pretty crazy, so I find myself eating on the go all the time. However, I won’t take my busy lifestyle as an excuse to eat junk. As a result, I’ve altered a no-bake energy bite recipe from another blog to fit my personal taste. Don’t worry if you’re not exactly a culinary expert, as assembling these scrumptious snacks is extremely easy!
Start by mixing all of the ingredients in a medium sized bowl with a spatula or spoon. When everything is well combined, let the mixture chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to make the assembly easier.
Once the mixture is chilled, take a small handful and begin shaping it into a ball.(Don’t be afraid to get a little sticky!)
Keep rolling until the “batter” is gone–there will probably be about 20-25. The bites can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. I prefer having them frozen, but they will be just fine in the fridge if you want them softer.
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1 Tbs. chia seeds
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbs. natural peanut butter
1 1/2 tbsp. raw honey
2 tbsp. pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips
2 tbsp. raisins or other dried fruit
- Mix all the ingredients thoroughly in a bowl.
- Let the mixture chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to make rolling them a little easier.
- Once they are chilled, roll them into balls about an inch in diameter.
- Store them in the refrigerator or the freezer depending on if you want them soft and chewy or more firm.
