These no-bake energy bites are super yummy, loaded with healthy ingredients, and perfect to have on hand for breakfast or an anytime snack.
My friend Mary Catherine served these no-bake energy bites (pictured above) last week, and I immediately asked for the recipe. They are REALLY yummy, and they are packed with good-for-you ingredients such as oatmeal, flaxseed, chia seeds and more.
Mary Catherine found the recipe here on Gimme Some Oven, where you can find full details on ways to switch up ingredients to suit taste or dietary preferences.
For example, if you eat Paleo, you could substitute almond butter for peanut butter. Vegans could use agave in place of honey. The options of nut butters (sunflower, almond, peanut), sweeteners (agave, maple syrup, honey), and chocolate chips (carob, vegan, or other baking chips) are many. These bites are super adaptable.
I ate two of these bites and wasn’t hungry for several hours after that. I did also enjoy a gluten-free bran muffin that Mary Catherine made; that recipe will come soon:-)
If you make these energy bites or would like to share your own version, please let us hear from you! As always, thanks so much for stoppinig by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
