It’s Treat Time! GFCFSF Energy Bites

by Misty


I have no idea where this recipe originated, but it has become one of our go-to favorites. Quick, healthy and oh-so-kid friendly, these energy bites serve many purposes: high-protein breakfast, lunchbox treat, after school snack, or even an entire meal if you are on a long road trip. My kids love them because they are fun to eat and I love them because they are high in protein and rich in fiber, omega 3s, iron and healthy fats. Make a double batch and they’ll keep for days in a sealed container in the fridge. And then go sit down with a good magazine because you’ve got snack time covered. Enjoy!  


1 cup GF oats (we use old-fashioned, but quick would work too)

1/3 cup honey (use raw, unfiltered for more nutrients)

1/2 cup natural peanut butter or almond butter

1 teaspoon pure GF vanilla

1/2 cup milled flax seed

1/2 cup Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips

1/2 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut

1/2 cup raisins


-Mix together dry ingredients in large bowl.

-Combine honey, nut butter and vanilla in small bowl.

-Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir well.

-Form into small balls.


Makes 18-20 energy bites.
