Gimme that

Summer is right around the corner and for many of us that means vacations, busy schedules and longer days. One of my favorite grab-and-go snacks to have on hand are these no bake energy ball bites. With only 5 ingredients and no oven time, they’re a breeze to put together and make for a healthy (and easy) on-the-go snack. Save this recipe to indulge your sweet tooth without sabotaging your diet!


(makes 12 servings)

1 Cup of rolled oats

½ Cup flax meal

 2/3 Cup almond butter

5 Tablespoons maple syrup

½ Cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Line baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Add all ingredients to bowl and mix with a spoon
  3. Roll 12 equal sized balls and place on baking sheet
  4. Refrigerate 2-4 hours or until firm

You can store these no bake energy balls in a sealed container for up to a week. I like to double the recipe and freeze half for future use. This recipe is gluten free and has minimum added sugar (save the dark chocolate chips).

No Bake Energy Ball Variations

There are many ways to customize this snack and it all depends on your taste. Some ideas to get you started…

Spice it up: adding spices like cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice  or even all-spice could add a seasonal flare to this snack.

Even easier prep: not into rolling individual balls? Press the batter into a lined 8×8 pan, chill and then cut into bars. If you have a pan with a lid, then you can store as is.

Play with flavor: in addition to spices you can substitute other nut butters for the almond butter. You can even add in toasted coconut, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds or another chocolate variation. Sea salt on top never hurt either!
