Recipe: Healthy Energy Bites

Meal Prep- Making No-Bake Energy Bites

If you're following me on Instagram, you know that I love to meal-prep and plan. This is one of my weekly rituals that I swear by. If I meal prep on a Sunday, I essentially ensure I am:
  • making healthier food choices
  • saving time during the week
  • saving money
  • not eating out
One of my go to items for breakfast and snacks have been Energy Bites.

I love these bites because they are so delicious and they are the perfect hit of protein, energy, fibre and sweetness to tide you over till your next meal. They are also super easy and quick to make.
I really think you can make these regardless of your skill level in the kitchen. 

These Energy Bites are not something I've invented but I have experimented and tried a few different versions which led me to come up with a flavour combination that I personally love.

Making these bites will take about 15 minutes but will definitely ensure your week starts off on the right foot.

Energy Bites

Servings: 24 bites   
Preparation Time: 15 minutes


1 cup oats
1 cup of Wow Butter (to make an allergy safe version, or you can use any nut butter)
1/4  cup chia seeds (I use white chia) 
1/4 cup chocolate chips (I like semi-sweet or dark)
1/4 cup pepitas
2 tbsp. honey
dehydrated coconut to coat
1 tsp. cinnamon

1) Combine the Wow Butter, honey and oats in a large bowl

2) Add the pepitas, chocoate chips and chia seeds and stir to combine

3) Create 1 inch balls, rolling them between your palms

4) Roll them in dehydrated coconut to coat

5) Place the energy balls in a glass dish with an air tight lid to enjoy all week long. 

These energy bites can be refrigerated or kept at room temperature if you prefer. 

I find that these bites make a great grab and go breakfast snack and make an awesome afternoon pick me up instead of reaching for a cookie. 

Hope you try them out at home! If you have your own go-to energy bite recipe, I'd love to try it! Leave me a comment and share it below.
