I’m always on the hunt to find healthy snacks for my toddler. Something that’s not pre-packaged, not full of bad ingredients and also something that doesn’t take forever to make. These little energy bites are the perfect solution. Just stir all the ingredients together and roll into mini balls. And the best part, there’s no baking required. Eat them as a quick snack or enjoy with a light lunch.
I used chopped up chocolate chips in here, but you can replace them with a chopped raisins.
No-Bake Energy Bites Recipe
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup all-natural peanut butter, crunchy or smooth
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup crispy brown rice cereal (or regular crispy rice cereal)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
*Optional: 1/4 chocolate chips, chopped (or mini chocolate chips)
Mix all the ingredients together and for into 12, tight, mini balls. It’s okay if you feel like your crushing the cereal to form a tight ball. If the mixture feels too dry, add another tablespoon of peanut butter or honey.
Store in the refrigerator in a sealed tight container.
