During mobility lab the other night I was sharing the recipe I use for no bake energy bites – which I eat on the daily!! I got the idea from the energy balls we make at the coffee shop and now pretty much survive off them. They are full of high protein and good fat ingredients to get you through whatever part of your day you need them for. I make these no bake energy bites weekly and sometimes eat two a day! Because I am constantly on the go I need energy fast; I will usually snack on one of these after I finish my personal practice before I go teach. They are the perfect mix of sweet and salty, and have enough calories to keep me fueled for my next appointment. I take them with me and while they will get soft if it’s hot out they stay pretty together for about an hour or two before they need to be refrigerated. My trick is to put them in a little container and keep them in my purse so they don’t sit in my car between classes!
Ready to make yours? Here’s my recipe!
Since I stopped measuring ingredients a while back here’s a guess but you can alter as your please.
4-5 large spoonfuls of peanut butter, almond butter, or any nut butter – I put in peanut & almond
4 squeezes of local honey
2-3 handfuls of dried cranberries
1.5 handfuls of dried blueberries
2 spoonfuls of chia seeds
1.5 spoonfuls of flax seed
Mix everything together & then add old fashioned oats in until the mixture becomes less sticky
Refrigerate about 30 mins to an hour or cover if longer. (I sometimes leave them overnight)
Put a cup of oats & a spoonful of chia seeds on a plate.
Form mixture into balls & roll in oats & chia seed mixture & press into ball.
Refrigerate & enjoy these tasty no bake energy bites!!
To make vegan, simple leave out the honey!
