Easy to Make and Healthy, Too!
These energy bites are quick and easy to make. Get the children involved—they will enjoy making them, too. These little snacks can be put in plastic bags and served at kids' events, or you can bring them to work for an afternoon pick-me-up. I will also provide some of the substitutions I use when I want a little variety. The best part is that they are also good for you and taste great.

Quick to Make
|Prep time||Ready in||Yields|
12-16 energy balls
- 1 cup quick oats
- 1 cup peanut butter, any kind
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon liquid honey
- 1 tablespoon dried cranberries
- In a medium mixing bowl, measure out and combine all ingredients with a large spoon. Use two small spoons (or use your hands) to form into balls.
- Drop the balls onto a cookie sheet. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Then place the balls in a container or ziplock bag. They make a good midday snack.
- Honey: use agave
- Chocolate chips: use raisins
- Dried cranberries: use dried blueberries
- Peanut butter: use almond butter; or 1/2 Nutella plus 1/2 nut butter of any type
Energy Balls Are a Good Afternoon Pick-Me-Up
This recipe is the one our family makes the most. When we want a change, we add Nutella to add a bit of variety. Just two of these balls will give you enough energy for the afternoon.
From my house to yours: I hope you enjoy these as much as we do. Health and happiness to all!
