Oatmeal Raisin Energy Bites

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.  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!

    I don’t usually like these balls cause they are so calorically dense and I’m a volume eater. But these arnt as bad as most out there! Love the flavors

      Yes I eat small throughout the day, so I love one of these as a little afternoon treat. You can adapt them so easily too!

    I think the internet could use a zillion of these recipes because they’re SO GOOD. And props to this one because I find that a lot of the time these healthy recipes have some bizarre ingredient that unless you live near a Whole Foods you can’t find. This seems so simple! Have a great weekend!!

      YES to so many recipes with different ingredients. My pantry is pretty simple and I don’t want to have to order an ingredient on amazon in order to make a recipe, lol. Have a great weekend Amanda!

      I definitely go through phases when I don’t want to prep anything and eat store bought bars too. I almost get mad at husband when he eats like four in one day because he doesn’t realize I want them to last the whole week, lol.

      They’re so great right! And so much cheaper and better for you than eating a packaged bar!
