Dawn’s Energy Bites

Energy BitesIf you’re a parent, you’re probably all too familiar with the ‘I’m hungry! There’s nothing to eat!’ chorus that fills the house, especially during summer break.

That’s why I love having these Energy Bites on hand. They’re not just a ‘treat’ but a nutritional powerhouse. Packed with protein and nutritious seeds, they’re a great way to boost energy.

I stash a few in my work bag for a quick and satisfying mid-morning or afternoon snack.

Energy Bite Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pure creamy peanut butter {look for the type without sugar or added oil}
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips {mini work best}
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Optional ingredients:


Mix all ingredients with a wooden spoon or mixer, then refrigerate the dough for about 20 minutes until set. Roll the dough into golf-ball-sized balls. We keep ours in the refrigerator to keep them fresh. I typically double this recipe because we go through them fast! Enjoy!
