These energy bites can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes and are TOO DIE FOR. Yes, I’m being dramatic. Is that really anything new? NOPE.
Really though, there’s not much to say about them other than that they are perfect to customize to your liking. I love how simple this recipe is, it reminds me of what use to be my Dad’s favorite snack… Nature Valley Granola Bars. Still to this day, those suckers are delicious.
Instead of eating those processed bars full of not-so-great for you deliciousness, I suggest eating these. Same taste… just, better for you ingredients.
These energy bites have a pretty strong honey taste which I’m low key obsessed with. Adding in dried apples, apricots, strawberries or even bananas would be amazing add-ins with the honey! You could add in coconut, flaxseeds, pecans or almonds. Honestly, the options are endless.
I chose to keep these energy bites lower in fat because I created this recipe for one of my Time To Wake Up clients (specific dietary needs- yes, I customize plans for YOU) BUT adding in a little more fat in addition to the high protein would keep you fuller for a little longer. That’s why I rolled them in my three toppings of choice: coconut, flax and hemp seeds!
Whatever you choose to do… I’m sure they’ll be DELICIOUS!
Lastly, I used my favorite vegan protein powder- Nuzest “Just Natural”. I haven’t tested this recipe with any other protein powder but I would be interested to see how they turn out! If you try it, make sure to let me know! If you want to become as obsessed with Nuzest as I am… code “ahealthyharmony” saves you some $$$ at check out.
You guys know I only talk about products that I love, that being said- using my code shows Nuzest that I actually am a pretty cool chick. Which would be pretty cool of you. So lets both be cool together- use my code when purchasing mmk? Much love friends!

Honey Oat Energy Bites
Perfect for an on-the-go breakfast or a pre-workout snack!

Pulse together all the ingredients in a food processor until just barely combined. You still want the oats to have a little texture.
