Easy energy bites!
I’m not going to lie…I have a hard time waking up most mornings. I’m just too tired and usually want to crawl back into bed for a few more hours, but know that’s impossible when you have to get the kids ready for school and work to get done. Rogue, right? 😉
Sometimes you may need a little motivation to get you through the day, and I have some delicious energy bites recipes to help. No, they may not be caffeine-free, but they contain tons of high-quality ingredients that will help fill you up and give you a little extra energy throughout the day. 🙂

Best of all, they’re a great little snack to help you get extra energy to get you through the day, and I’m sure we can all use it. 😉
how to make them
These delicious power bites only take a few minutes.
mix. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add wet ingredients and mix until everything sticks together. (tip: Using a KitchenAid or other stand mixer works great for this. Or, use your hands to really mix it up. )
refrigeration. Put the mixture in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to make it easier to roll into balls.
roll. Use a cookie scoop to scoop the mixture into balls, rolling the scoop into a tighter ball if you prefer.
Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks, or freeze for up to 3 months.
change + storage
You can substitute whatever ingredients you like.
- If you don’t want to use mini chocolate chips, you can pretty much use another type of chocolate chip (white chocolate, butterscotch, milk chocolate, etc.).
- If you’re not a fan, feel free to omit the shredded coconut or flax seeds.
- Add protein powder for a little extra protein content.
storagein an airtight container. Separate the layers with parchment or wax paper. They will keep for 1-2 days at room temperature, 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator, or up to 3 months in the refrigerator. Let frozen food thaw before eating.
