Start with base ingredients

ENERGY BITE BASE 

  • 1 1/4 cups oats (gluten free rolled oats, quick oats or a blend of half quick, half old fashioned)
  • 2 tablespoons “power mix-ins” (chia seeds or flaxseeds)
  • 1/2 cup nut butter of choice (peanut butter or almond butter)
  • 1/3 cup sticky liquid sweetener of choice (honey or maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mix-ins (see below for flavor options)

Now add in your flavors

CLASSIC CHOCOLATE CHIP
Base ingredients + 1/2 cup chocolate chips

TRAIL MIX
Base ingredients + 3 tablespoons chocolate chips, 3 tablespoons chopped almonds, 2 tablespoons raisins

WHITE CHOCOLATE CRANBERRY
Base ingredients + 1/4 cup dried cranberries, 1/4 cup white chocolate chips

ALMOND JOY
Base ingredients -  replace 1/2 cup of the oatmeal with 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes + 1/4 cup chocolate chips, 1/4 cup chopped almonds

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE
Base ingredients + 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, ADD 2 tablespoons cocoa powder

OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIE
Base ingredients with maple syrup, 1/2 cup raisins, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions
  1. Place all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl: oats, power mix-ins, nut butter, sweetener, vanilla extract, salt, mix-ins, and extra ingredients. Stir to combine. If the mixture seems too wet, add a bit more oats. If it’s too dry, add a bit more nut butter. It should resemble a somewhat sticky dough that holds together when lightly squeezed.  
  2. Roll ingredients into balls and place on a cookie sheet.
  3. Place rolled ball in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to set.
  4. Store leftover energy balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months. 
 
*For nut allergies: In place of the almond or peanut butter, try sunflower seed butter.
