I am obsessed with these No-Bake Energy Bites and I am so excited to share them with you. They are easy to make and the best part is they taste like cookies. I am not kidding, you have to try these!
These energy bites are super easy and don’t require baking. With only 5 ingredients you can whip up a batch in no time.
The main ingredient in these Energy Bites is oats making them great for a quick breakfast on the go or a snack to get you through the rest of your busy day. I use old-fashioned oats for a chewier texture. These bites are made with whole food ingredients including peanut butter, coconut, and honey giving them a good mix of healthy fats, carbs, protein, and fiber to keep you going.
Oats: Full of fiber and protein, oats are a nutritious way to keep you full throughout the day.
Peanut Butter: One serving of peanut butter contains 7 grams of protein. Filled with healthy fat and fiber, it’s sure to keep you full of energy.
Honey: A natural sweetener, honey is packed with vitamins and minerals.
Coconut: This fiber-rich food will help control your blood sugar and cholesterol, plus keep you full longer.
Dark Chocolate: High antioxidant content in dark chocolate along with soluble fiber and minerals can improve health and lower the risk of heart disease.
The variety of these energy bites is endless:
The base for these bites is oats and peanut butter, but you an add all sorts of super-foods and nutrient dense ingredients including – Chia seeds, flax seeds, substitute dark chocolate for cacao nibs or almond butter instead of peanut butter. You can add any dried fruit and nuts. The options are truly endless. Check out my No-Bake Cranberry Almond Energy Bites.
