  • 1/4 cup honey or Maple Syrup
  • 1/8 cup Chia Seeds or hemp seeds or flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup Natural Peanut Butter or Almond Butter
  • 1 cup Quick Cooking Oats
  • 1/3 cup Mini Chocolate Chips


Food Processor Instructions

  1. Add the oats, honey, peanut butter and chia seeds to the food processor. Quickly pulse the ingredients together until they are well incorporated and have a cookie dough like texture.

  2. If you are using them, add in the mini chocolate chips. Give 1-2 pulses to incorporate.

  3. Moisten your hands with water- scoop out cookie dough in 1.5 tbsp. portions and roll into balls. Because the mixture is sticky, you may need to moisten your hands a few times. Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.

  4. The energy bites need to chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes prior to eating.

Mixing Bowl Instructions

  1. In a large bowl mix the peanut honey (or maple syrup), chia seeds (hemp or flax seed can also be used), and peanut butter (or nut butter of choice) together.
  2. Add the oats and mini chocolate chips and fold together until it all sticks together. The mixture should be thick and sticky. You may need to use your hands to fully mix it together.

  3. Moisten your hands and take 1.5 tbsp. portions and roll into balls. You'll get 11-12 balls. Place them on a parchment lined sheet and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
