One Bowl, All Natural, No Bake Energy Bites

I apologize in advance if you have a recipe just like this.  I’ve seen these kind of energy bites around for ever now and all the recipes are very similar so if this happens to be anyone else’s exact recipe, I’m sorry!  That being said, what I’m going to give you is more of a formula.  You see, I never make these the same.  The general amounts of things stay the same but the ingredients are always changing so I’ll tell you what are in these, but I’ll also give you my secret formula so you can make your own flavor combinations too One Bowl, All Natural, No Bake Energy Bites

I originally got this idea from a blog that’s no longer up and running, probably 3 years ago.  A good friend of mine would come over to visit when we first moved into our house and we couldn’t keep our hands out of the freezer when there was a bag of these inside.  They are so good.  Sweet enough to be dessert but they’re quick and easy and a great source of energy.  Plus some healthy fats and a good amount of fiber to help keep you feeling energized and satisfied.

They keep indefinitely in the freezer and I find them so much more addictive when they’re frozen almost solid.  But if you’d much rather be able to sink your teeth into them at a moments notice you can keep them in a sealed container in the fridge and I’m sure they’ll last quite a while.  Plus they’re much easier for kids to eat when they’re soft from the fridge.  If you are making them for kids I would recommend making them smaller than I did as they do begin to “melt” after a few minutes in warm little hands One Bowl, All Natural, No Bake Energy Bites
