Healthy Nut Butter Energy Bites Recipe—So Good!

Looking for a healthy snack that’s easy to make…and even easier to enjoy?

These Nut Butter Energy Bites have got you covered.

My kiddo is pretty much always skeptical to try new things that I say are healthy, but his response to these was “I can NOT stop eating them” followed by “it’s fine though right, because they’re healthy?!”

I hope you enjoy them as much as he does (actually we all do), let me know in the comments below.


  • 1 cup peanut or almond butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup flax seeds
  • 3 TBSP honey (or agave)
  • 1 TBSP chia seeds

Combine in a bowl then roll to form snack size balls. If you don’t keep your peanut butter in the fridge, you’ll need to place the combined ingredients in the fridge for 15 minutes or so to firm up before rolling into balls.

Optional add ins: chopped cashews, dates, dried cherries or seeds, coconut, vanilla (for added flavor), sea salt. You can actually get really creative with these which is fun. Play around and let me know what your perfect bite size combo is!
