Customize this recipe template with your favorite nut butter, add-ins, liquid, and sweetener. Instead of running to the store, head over to your pantry and see what ingredients you have on hand to throw in for the “add-ins” portion. Everything from cereal to nuts to a broken chocolate bar is welcome in these guys. Some of my favorites to throw into these bites are chia seeds, mini chocolate chips, and coconut flakes.
Avoid getting “hangry” with these energy bites.
I always have these bites on hand to grab-and-go because if I don’t pack snacks with me for the day, I get serious “hangrxiety”. Hungry, angry, and anxious. Never a good combo. Avoid the hunger with these perfect little morsels–filled with amazing protein and fiber to keep you fuller longer.
How do I make energy bites?
First, mix everything together
Start with a base of rolled oats. Then, add in all other ingredients of your choice. Customize this recipe template with your favorite nut butter, add-ins, liquid, and sweetener.
Instead of running to the store, head over to your pantry and see what ingredients you have on hand to throw in for the “add-ins of your choice” portion. Everything from cereal to nuts to a broken chocolate bar is welcome in these guys. Feel free to use just one add-in ingredient or a mixture of several.
Then, stick the mixture in the freezer
Chilling for 20-30 minutes makes the mixture easier to roll. If you’re short on time you can skip this step and go right into rolling the bites–but expect sticky hands!
Finally, roll the mixture into bites
Use your hands to roll into balls. This recipe will make for 12 large bites or 24 smaller bites.
