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.

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!

    1. Thank for the kind words and for the pin! I still feel like it is magical when I see one of my pins while browsing through Pinterest!

    1. I haven’t tried with nutella, but I have done it with Cashew butter and sunflower seed butter. Can she enjoy either of those?

  1. They look easy to make and sound flavorful. My brother loves peanut butter and granola so I bet he’d be a fan of these.

  2. I have been wanting a good snack to have before or after my workouts. I can’t wait to make these. Thanks for the recipe.

  3. I like that it’s no-bake. I would make these for the summer, it’d be nice not to have a stove running and still get a sweet treat.

  4. There are so many things to love about these energy bites, including the fact that they contain both peanut butter AND chocolate, but my favorite is that they are no bake! Running the oven during the summer is never fun.

    1. I had a few weeks I didn’t make it in. Even just going back once will reignite the addiction… well at least for me. Then you have the week or so your body has to readjust to those awful seats too, haha.

    1. That is such a good idea! I bet my morning coffee would be better with a couple bites too! On weekdays my breakfast is usually just coffee.
