Easy No Bake Energy Bites

For the most part, my family and I try to eat pretty healthy. We love fresh foods and Adam is the big cook in the house so we really love our nights in relaxing over a good meal. However, now that I’m in the midst of my mommy makeover, my diet is even stricter. I’ve learned that as much as working out can transform your body, you have to meet it half way with the diet part. It’s easy to lose motivation though and succumb to sweets and heavy meals, which is why it’s important to keep a few healthier snacks on hand.

Enter, energy bites! These treats are small but mighty, and because I made them with a flax and chia seed infused peanut butter, they’re also rich in fiber and protein. Don’t you love when you come across a food you’d munch on, diet or not?

Easy No Bake Energy Bites

¼ cup pure maple syrup OR raw honey
2 cups uncooked rolled oats
1 cup crunchy peanut butter (Trader Joes has peanut butter with flax and chia, but you could add those in separately. You could also try almond butter!)
2 cups chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients except chocolate together in one bowl and mix until evenly distributed. They should be nice and sticky. One by one, roll them into bite sized balls. Pop them in the fridge for at least 10 minutes to firm up before adding the chocolate.

An optional (but key!) last step, is to melt the chocolate and drizzle on top. Afterward, store it in the fridge until the chocolate cools, and afterward you can store in covered containers.

Great for the mom with NO time, too! Pass them out to the little ones, but make sure to say they’re cookies rather than bites ;)

    Will these come out if you don’t use sweetner? I’m doing a Daniel fast right now, so peanut butter and oats are fine, but I can’t use sweetners.

    • I think they would still be tasty but the honey or maple does help it stick together.

        Okay thanks! Gonna try and make them today!

    I’m curious about how many servings per batch and what the calorie info is like. I’m also wondering if pb2 would be a good substitute for the peanut butter.

    I tried this recipe. They are delicious!! I liked that the ingredients are simple and I had them in my pantry except for the peanut butter, (which was easy for me to find.) Thanks for this recipe. Keep them coming :-)

Poor Daddy he get to eat healthy so that our 3 kiddo’s will learn to eat various foods!!! lol.lol.

  • Team Poppy Cove

    When a member of our squad was suffering from thyroid problems that left her with low energy, we rallied around her to keep our cabinets stocked full of healthier snacks that could satisfy her incessant sweet tooth. We can’t wait to try this recipe together in our work space as a team (yay no-bake!). Thanks so much for sharing!

    With love from the Bay Area <3

    Can’t wait to try. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to making these with my son.

    My 5 year old granddaughter, Isabella, and I made these tonight. So much fun to make. The only problem I had was the chocolate was to thick to drizzle good. Any suggestions? Also I’m a member of Weight Watchers and I didn’t know how to count these point wise. Do you by chance have the nutrient values. Like fat, sugar, etc…? Thanks By the way I just love you and all the girls on The Real!!!!

  • Wendy Mlaba

    So ready to try these. They are perfect for when l’m feeling lazy to slave over an oven.

    Hi Folks, I saw a few comments asking about calorie count… I was interested in making these so I plugged the recipe into the My Fitness Pal app to analyze the recipe. Based on the recipe analyzer the calorie count worked out to being 506 calories per bite (based on 9 bites per the picture in the recipe). I hope this info helps.
