Energy Bites: A No Bake Recipe
If you remember my “skinny” no-bake cookie oatmeal recipe, then you know I absolutely LOVE finding healthier ways to make some of my guilty pleasures.
Plus, if its something that can be made easily and ahead of time, so that my boys can walk to the fridge and pull out what they need… then it’s even BETTER!
This recipe that I’m sharing with you today, for energy bites, are made using ingredients that you more than likely have on hand, or are easy to snag at your local grocery store… or of course, Amazon!
For a Guilty Pleasure Treat, You’ll LOVE:
Chocolate and Peanut Butter Energy Bites
So I’m totally a sucker for anything chocolate and peanut butter. I firmly believe that these two ingredients were meant to be one, and can make the most simplest recipe, the absolute best.
But if you’re trying to make healthy snacks for yourself or for your family, with using things like gluten free oats, (oatmeal) flaxseed and honey, instead of sugar and flour… then chocolate and peanut butter are fantastic ingredients to help disguise the “healthy”.

Mix all of your ingredients together, then using your hand, form the energy bites in to round balls. You’ll then place them on wax paper and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes before eating.
Then, store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator or freezer so you all can grab one as you wish!
Way better than reaching for a chocolate chip cookie, right?
