Ingredients You’ll Need :

These oatmeal energy bites are made with 9 simple ingredients that you most likely have in your pantry!

  • Rolled oats. I used gluten free old fashioned rolled oats, but regular work as well. I would not use quick oats as it changes the consistency.
  • Creamy peanut butter. I always check ingredient list to make sure it’s just peanuts and salt– not only is it better for you, it is the creamiest!! If you wanted to use a different nut butter, almond butter is also delicious in these energy bites.
  • Shredded coconut.
  • Maple syrup. Honey or agave nectar would work as well.
  • Cinnamon.
  • Ground flaxseed meal.
  • Chocolate collagen powder.
  • Chocolate chips. I used dark chocolate chips but any will work, depending on your preference.
  • Coconut oil.
  • Maldon sea salt.

Best way to store these energy balls:

You can store these delicious oatmeal bites in an airtight container or stasher bag in the fridge or freezer. They will last in the fridge for 1 week and in the freezer for 2 months. I personally love keeping them in the freezer for a little healthy snack dessert situation. My toddler loves them too so I keep a few in the fridge for him as well! They are the perfect afternoon snack for him but also great to pop in his lunchbox for school.
