Energy Bites

Energy Bites


Energy Bites are perfect for a healthy quick snack or breakfast on the go. We have made these four times in the last 4 weeks.

It’s been a crazy year, with being pregnant and all the other things that come with life. I would come home from school and obviously feel a little tired and maybe on edge also, you know hormones.

My kids would get home and have a lot of emotions and since I was already tired I would lose it a little. Then we figured out they just needed a little snack when they got home. Which seems kind of silly, because I know the two at daycare get plenty of food.

Since, being home on maternity leave, I decided to make the bottom drawer of our fridge a snack drawer. The kids can reach it and get out what they want. I put in veggies, fruit, string cheese, Gogurts, lots of other stuff and these energy bites.

Greyson is a little dude and isn’t always the best eater and so I always worry he’s not getting enough calories and these have been the perfect snack for him and his siblings. They have been such a hit at our house we have been making them frequently and the kids love to eat them.





Peanut Butter & M&Ms
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup mini M&Ms
  • 1/4 cup ground Flax seed
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


Almond Joy
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/4 cup flax seed
  • 2/3 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt



Oatmeal Raisin
  • 1 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup flax seed
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon





  1. Stir everything together.  Stir all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl until thoroughly combined.
  2. Scoop into about 1 inch balls. I used a small cookie scoop, sometimes I roll them and sometimes I leave them in a rough ball shape so I don’t have to get my hands dirty. 
  3. Chill. Cover the mixing bowl and chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours, or until the balls are chilled.  
  4. Then I put them in little snack bags for the kids to grab.
  5. Serve.  You can eat them right away or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 1 week. I heard you can freeze them for up to 3 months, but I haven’t tried that yet. Mine don’t last long enough, if you try it, let us know how that goes!

I have been on a quest to make the Perfect Green Smoothie, since I’ve been trying to make healthier breakfast in the mornings.

Fresh garden tomatoes are my favorite, especially when you can make salsa! Homemade Salsa and chips are the best appetizers!
