Three Easy-To-Make Energy Bites

Tamera Mowry Recipe Energy Bites

Energy Bites Recipe

I love a good snack! I especially love a healthy snack that is delicious, quick and easy to make. That is why when I saw recipes for energy bites on Pinterest, I had to start experimenting in the kitchen, and come up with my own version of this very popular recipe!

These little bites are perfect for me, particularly when I am busy because they are not only tasty, but give me a quick protein fix! The recipe requires no baking, and it only takes about 30 minutes to make a big batch of them. They disappeared suspiciously fast in my house, so I think it is safe to say that everyone else enjoyed them as much as I do.

The base of this recipe is really simple — Old fashioned oats, peanut butter and honey. After that, you can start getting creative, and add in whatever other ingredients you feel like! I created three different versions of these bites, and all three turned out amazing!

Energy Bites Recipe 3

Recipe Base (makes approximately 20 energy bites, rolled into 1 inch balls)

  • 1 cup of dry old fashioned oats
  • ½ cup of all-natural smooth peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup of organic honey

 

Chocolate Chip and Hemp Hearts Energy Bites

  • Recipe Base
  • 1 cup of vegan chocolate chips, divided into 1/2 cups
  • 1/3 cup of shelled hemp hearts

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and set ½ cup of chocolate chips aside. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for ten minutes so that the batter gets a little firm.

Roll the batter into whatever sized balls you would like, and place them on a cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper. I rolled mine into balls that were about 1 inch in diameter. Next, melt ½ cup of chocolate chips in the microwave (about 20 seconds on high), and stir until the chocolate is smooth. Finally, drizzle a little bit of chocolate on top of the bites and place in the refrigerator for 10-15 more minutes until the chocolate hardens.

Place into an airtight container, and store in the refrigerator for up to one week!

 

Blueberry and Almond Energy Bites

  • Recipe Base
  • ½ cup of organic dried blueberries
  • ½ cup of slivered almonds
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for ten minutes so that the batter gets a little firm. Roll the batter into whatever sized balls you would like. Place into an airtight container, and store in the refrigerator for up to one week!

 

Chocolate Chip, Chia Seed and Coconut Energy Bites

  • Recipe Base
  • ½ cup of vegan chocolate chips
  • ½ cup of dried coconut flakes, divided into 1/4 cups
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, and set aside ¼ cup of dried coconut flakes in a small bowl. Place the mixing bowl in the refrigerator for ten minutes so that the batter gets a little firm. Roll the batter into whatever sized balls you would like. Dip the top half of each ball into the bowl of remaining coconut flakes. Place into an airtight container, and store in the refrigerator for up to one week!

 

I hope you all love these as much as I do! Let me know if you make your own version of this recipe!

    Hi Tamera,
    My recipe base is the same but I usually substitute honey with dates in these protein balls so they remain all vegan; and use cacao powder and desiccated coconut. They are so delicious! Love your idea of incorporating fruit in it – will give it a go this week!

    Hi Tamera. I know this is not a related topic but I was trying to get information on the milk booster foods you recommend for breastfeeding?
    Thank you
