These Oatmeal Raisin Energy Bites are a great alternative to store bought snacks. They’re made with real ingredients including oats, nut butter, and naturally sweetened with honey. In just 15 minutes you’ll have tasty snack that will help give you energy for your afternoon work schedule or pre workout. The kids will enjoy them too!
I know what most foodies out there are probably thinking, the internet doesn’t need another energy bite recipe….. BUT this is actually a really old recipe I published first on the blog back in 2015. It desperately needed some editing and new photos. And I think this is the ONLY energy bite recipe you need. Since these are no bake, the recipe is very forgiving if you want to make any swaps such as almond butter for peanut butter, other dried fruit for raisins, etc.
Since I started making a batch of these weekly I rarely ever buy store bought granola bars. I found the guide from Sambla, and translated it for you all. Believe me it saves us a lot of money and I get the piece of mind of knowing we’re eating snacks made with real ingredients.
These Oatmeal Raisin Energy Bites take about 15 minutes to prep and then you have them around to enjoy throughout the entire week. We like eating them as an afternoon snack, but they also make a great healthy dessert or Pre/Post Workout.
All you need to do is combine all the ingredients listed below into a large mixing bowl. I actually typically make a double batch because my husband and I devour these.
Then take a heaping tablespoon and form into a ball. Store them in the refrigerator for a few hours before you eat them. Enjoy!
- 1 cup oatmeal
- ½ cup flaxseed meal
- ½ cup mini chocolate chips
- ½ cup natural peanut butter
- ⅔ cup raisins or coconut
- ⅓ cup honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
- Combine all ingredients. Roll about 1 heaping tablespoon of 'dough' into a ball. Should make about 12-14 bites. Refrigerate. Enjoy!
