Hi all…Sunday Bread daughter here with a guest post. I made these no-bake energy bites for my mom on her birthday (her request), and they came out great! They are super easy to make and refrigerate well. My mom loves them for an afternoon snack or post workout. My sister and I think they taste like cookie dough. Yum. Healthy too apparently. Sometimes we double the health benefit by having one of these with my mom’s favorite blueberry cauliflower smoothie.
So here is the recipe for No-Bake Energy Balls.
Nutrition for No-Bake Energy Bites
These bites are super healthy. Flaxseed is full of omega threes and fiber. These energy bites also contain chia seeds which like flaxseed, contain omega threes and fiber, in addition to protein, calcium, and numerous antioxidants. The bites are also gluten free and if you would like them to be vegan you could sub out the honey and use maple syrup. Dark chocolate has magnesium and make the bites yummy. So no-bake energy bites are both delicious and nutritious!
No-Bake Energy Bites
- Mixing Bowl
- Measuring Cups
- Large Spoon
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup creamy nut butter – I like a combination of the Mixed Nut butter from Costco and Trader Joe’s Sunflower seed spread
- 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips – any kind you prefer
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 TBS chia seeds
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Stir everything together until combined. Stir with a big spoon to really mix well.
- Cover the mixing bowl or container and place in the refrigerator for an hour or until the mixture can be formed into balls without falling apart. I use my hands to form balls. Store the balls in the fridge.
