If you’re looking for a healthy and simple snack, try these No-Bake Oatmeal Energy Bites. They taste like a yummy no-bake cookie, are fun to make, and most importantly – they are kid approved!
Oatmeal Energy Bites
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup almond butter ((or substitute peanut butter))
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup raw honey
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together. Roll out teaspoon sized balls and place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Freeze until set about one hour. Enjoy and keep leftovers in a Ziploc bag in fridge or freezer. Makes about 20-24 energy bites.
Personalize this recipe with add-ins such as raisins, dried cranberries, pumpkin, and dried cherries. I’ve also used ground bran cereal like Fiber One instead of flaxseed. These bites make a great afternoon snack and are also handy to take along when traveling.
