No bake energy bites that taste like a cross between your three favorite cookies: Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Raisin. The addition of flax meal kick up the flavor and the good-for-you-factor!Chewy, sweet and healthy, these energy bites are a quick healthy snack any time you need them. You can add or substitute any ingredients you would like, and the results are a delicious healthy treat you can feel good about eating without paying almost two dollars a bar for other natural snack bars. The best part is it takes just a few minutes to make them, no baking involved!

If you have been following me on Instagram (which by the way you totally should! It is like looking behind the curtain of the blog) you have undoubtedly seen my posts about working out. I’m admittedly a spin addict and by the end of class I am usually so glad to be done and getting off the bike I want to curl up in a ball and nap next to it.  Something that has helped me recover has been getting a snack in the first 45 minutes after I finish my workout.

These energy bites are my heroes! Once I finish spin, I shower and get the kids out of the Kid’s Academy. By the time we get home, it has been almost an hour and a half since working out. I keep a small tub of these in the car so when my oldest proclaims “I’m hungry!!” as we are sitting in traffic I have something to offer. I also keep a small ziploc baggie of them with my workout gear so I am always able to refuel quickly.

MY OTHER RECIPES

You’ll love how incredibly easy these bites are, they require no cooking (so you don’t have to turn on your oven during this hot summer we have been having!) and are bite sized so they are easy to eat for both adults and kids!
