No Bake Energy Bites

I shared with you a few weeks ago 3 Ways I’m Getting Healthy by exercising, cooking healthier, and cutting out some sugar and caffeine. I wish I had started doing this when I was younger, but I don’t think it’s too late to start.

I don’t know if you’ve seen these or not, but these No Bake Energy Bites have been floating around Pinterest, so I decided to give them a try, and I love them!

No Bake Energy Bites

After I made mine, I realized I added 1/2 cup honey instead of 1/3 cup, so that’s why mine looks a little different. I should have added more oats.

Here’s all you need:

1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (I used regular size because that’s what I had, but mini’s would work better.)
1 tsp vanilla

Mix all the ingredients. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to make the mixture firmer and easier to work with the roll into one-inch balls. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

That’s it! When you crave something sweet, these are a great alternative!

Have you tried these no bake energy bites? What’s your go-to energy snack?

  1. I made these today & they taste amazing! I actually made 2 batches – one with chia seeds added & one with walnuts added just because this is what I had on hand. Thanks for sharing this versatile recipe!

  2. I make some similar to this & use 1/3 c. Dried crasins. Love almond butter in place of peanut butter also for variation.

    1. Oh Mary W thanks for commenting! I have a child with peanut allergy, so I was bummed I couldn’t make these. But I can try the almond butter. Thanks for the idea!

  3. the oldfashioned works just great. Try the almond butter instead of peanut butter and ck the nutrition facts. I believe the fats are better than the peanut butter

  4. Thank you for the recipe, Cyndi and a big thank you to Betsy for sharing the serving info. I don’t buy or eat most things without checking the serving size and calorie count. My energy snackie of choice is a serving (1/4 cup) of walnuts and one square of Lindts Organic 95 % Cocoa. I break that little square up into pieces and put them in a snack baggie with the nuts. I love oatmeal so as soon as I but some ground flaxseed, I will try those bites ( with semi sweet chips!…love my dark chocolate:-) )

  5. Hi Cyndi.

    They look delicious! I make something similar, but I use Shakeology in lieu of the chocolate chips. Shakeology is a super food, for sure! They are delicious and so good for you. I am going to try yours as well, maybe with dark chococlate chips.

    BTW, I love coconut oil too! I use it as my moisturizer when I get out of the shower. 🙂 Thanks for sharing. Always love your posts.


  6. After putting this recipe into my “SparkPeople” recipe calculator, but not knowing…just assuming after looking on Pinterest at other recipes that say it makes about 20- 1″ balls; that 1 is a serving, this is what I got:
    Nutritional Info: Servings Per Recipe: 20 ;Amount Per Serving 1; Calories: 105.9
    Total Fat: 5.6 g; Cholesterol: 0.0 mg; Sodium: 30.4 mg; Total Carbs: 12.6 g
    Dietary Fiber: 1.2 g; Protein: 2.5 g
    Hope this helps!

  7. I love these things! They are like dessert! I put coconut in mine and I freeze them. makes them even chewier and like a treat! and…. I LOVE francis chan. My ladies bible study is almost done with the book “Crazy Love”. It is a great Bible study. Really stops you in your tracks and calls you to live out radical chiristian behavior.I love it.

  8. These look fabulous! I am trying to get the nutrional value of these, but I need to know how many this recipe makes. Can you help me out please? Thanks!
