Naturally Sweetened Energy Bite Tips –

Feel free to skip step # 2 if you like your energy bites a little chunky. I prefer to process mine a little and I think kids like that texture better as well.

Be sure to try other ingredients as well. If you aren’t a cranberry fan put in raisins. Swap the chia seeds for flax seeds, etc. Use your imagination and enjoy!

      I love when I already have everything for a recipe! Enjoy!

    I like how you leave it open with nut/seed butter. I’m deathly allergic to peanuts. However I can eat all other nuts. So I often eat almond butter instead. I would love to try this recipe with that!

    1. Cindy Author

      I bet it would be delicious with almond butter! Keep me posted.

    Awesome snack, easy to make and healthy as well. The only thing for me is, I am nut-intolerant, but I can always modify the recipe a little bit to adjust it to my needs. Thanks for sharing this lovely and yummy energy bites 🙂

      You might try sunflower seed butter, if you can tolerate seeds. It’s super yummy!

    Could you recommend an alternative to the chia seeds? My body doesn’t digest seeds very well.

    1. Cindy Author

      You could simply leave them out. Sometimes, especially with chia seeds, we need to drink lots of water to help them through our system.
