5 No-Bake Energy Bite Recipes

Toni-Ann DiSantis

5 No-bake energy bite recipes that will satisfy your snack cravings

 

Key Lime Coconut Energy Bites

Ingredients

1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup cashews
1 1/2 cups Medjool dates*, pitted
zest and juice from 3 key limes
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut

Instructions

Add the almonds and cashews to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until nuts are finely chopped (but do not pulse too long, you do not want the nuts to turn into a paste). Add the dates, lime juice and zest. Pulse until the dates are finely chopped and the mixture starts to clump. Shape the mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls. Roll in coconut to coat outside of the balls. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Notes

If Medjool dates are not available, any other pitted date will work.

 

Chocolate Chia Power Balls

Ingredients

1/2 cup almond butter
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup rolled oats (gluten free if necessary)
¼ cup chia seeds
pinch sea salt
¼ cup dark chocolate chips

 

Instructions

In a small sauce pan over low heat, melt together the almond butter and honey, then stir in the cacao powder, sea salt and vanilla. Stir well until everything is combined
In a mixing bowl stir together the chia seeds and oats
Pour the chocolate mixture over the oats and seeds and mix well. I used my fingers to really blend it well
Pop the mixture in the fridge for 5 minutes to cool down
Add in the chocolate chips and roll into balls
Store in the fridge in a sealed container

 

Carrot Cake Granola Bites

Ingredients

1½ cups old-fashioned oats
⅓ cups unroasted pecans, chopped
1 tbsp ground flax seed
¾ cup almond butter
3 tbsp agave nectar or honey
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
¾ cup (packed) grated carrot
⅓ cup raisins

Instructions

In a large bowl, mix together the oats, pecans and flax seed.
Stir in the almond butter, agave nectar and cinnamon until well combined.
Stir in the grated carrot and raisins.
Using 2 tablespoons (packed) of the mixture for each bite, roll the mixture into bite-sized balls. Using a medium-sized cookie scoop makes this process easier. Also, spray your hands with cooking spray to stop the mixture from sticking.
Place the granola bites on a baking sheet, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Serve.
Store the remaining granola bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

 

Blueberry Coconut Granola Bites

Ingredients

1/4 cup coconut oil
5 Tablespoons honey
1 cup shredded coconut
1 3/4 cups rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup dried blueberries

Instructions

Melt the coconut oil and honey together in a small sauce pan or in the microwave. Pour over the oats, coconut, blueberries, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir until everything is covered.
Press the mixture firmly into a foil lined 8x8 baking dish. Cool completely. Cut into 16 squares. Press and roll the squares into balls. Store in a sealed container on the counter.

Notes

*You may need to refrigerate the pan of granola to chill it more if you are having problems keeping the granola in a ball form.
