This easy No Bake Energy Bites recipe is a healthy snack that is ready in just 15 minutes. You can even customize them to fit your taste!
These No Bake Energy Bites became my go-to snack when I was pregnant with our second child.
They were the perfect thing to eat when I was craving something sweet because they satisfied me and yet were still relatively healthy. Definitely better than the Oreos or ice cream that I often felt like eating!
And now my kids love snacking on them too!
Thankfully, they’re super easy to mix up. And you can even freeze them. I like to save time by making a double batch and then freezing half of them. It’s such a great way to make sure we always have a healthy snack in the house!

I added dried pineapple because pineapple is awesome. Great little recipe! Freezes really well. Only takes an hour or two to freeze and thaws in about six hours! It’s great.
That sounds like a delicious addition, Vixenvena! Thanks for sharing.
How many servings?
It depends on how big you make them, but it makes around 1 1/2 to 2 dozen bites.
In place of the wheat germ, flax seeds, etc., do you think chia seeds would work?
I think so! I haven’t used chia seeds just a lot, but from what I think they would work as a substitute. The only possible issue that I can think of is that the moisture from the peanut butter and honey might cause them to “soften” and become gelatinous, but I really don’t think it would be enough moisture to make it a huge issue.
I just made these (so easy!) for my daughter who has been having digestive issues and had lost some weight. Her doctor recommended more fiber and of course more calories. These are perfect! Thank you thank you thank you!
You are so, so welcome, Jaze! So glad to hear that these were a help! And hope your daughter is back to excellent health again soon!
