No Bake Energy Bites Recipe

No Bake Energy Bites Recipe - Must Have Mom

It’s Winter and here in Minnesota we are experiencing freezing cold temperatures already. This time of year we always focus on ways to save energy as heating costs rise and we need to look at the best ways to be efficient. What better way to be efficient than to indulge in some no bake energy bites?! Not only will you be saving energy by leaving the oven off, but you’ll be gaining energy from the power packed ingredients so you can get through your day without the mid-afternoon drag!

Energy Bites Recipe

These no bake energy bites are easy and super fast to throw together. In fact I threw a batch together at 10:30 last night so we could enjoy them today! It only takes a few minutes to toss the ingredients in a bowl and mix them together to form balls. Toss in old fashioned oats (uncooked oatmeal), coconut flakes, peanut butter and cinnamon (or Don’t Go Nuts Cinnamon Wowbutter for the nut-free version), ground flax seed, chocolate chips, raw honey, vanilla extract and chia seeds (optional but healthy!). Mix it all together with a spoon or your hands and then form them into 1 inch balls. Store in the fridge and they last about a week!

Energy Bites Recipe

The end result is a very tasty energy bite that is perfect for grabbing on the go or popping when you get that afternoon slump hitting you. Re-energize with these and get moving again! They are so good! They don’t taste healthy for you but they are!
