Need a quick energy-boosting snack? These Honey Almond Energy Bites are so easy to make, taste like cookies and best of all, don’t need any baking! If I feel a drop in energy or need a snack to hold me over until dinner, I just grab a couple of these Honey Almond Energy Bites and I’m good to go! They’re also great with a cup of Oregon Chai Tea latte, which is one of the items I received in this month’s Degustabox!
Honey Almond Energy Bites
- 1 Cup Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal
- 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
- 1/2 Cup Almond Butter
- 1/4 Cup Raw Honey
- 1-2 TBSP White Grape Seed Flour *
- 1/2 TSP Cinnamon
Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, blend the raw honey with the almond butter until smooth. Gently fold the almond butter mixture into the dry ingredients until well blended.
Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet. Refrigerate for 30-60 minute, then enjoy. Store in an airtight container. Since my almond butter needs to be refrigerated, I opt to store my Honey Almond Energy Bites in the refrigerator as well. My kids snacked on them and mentioned that they tasted like granola bars, only better!
- You may wonder why I added the White Grape Seed Flour to my recipe. Of course this is optional, but the reason I chose to include it is because I have seen Grape Seed Flour pop up on recipes here and there. I have heard that grape seed flour is rich in antioxidants and is a good source of healthy fats, magnesium, protein, iron, calcium and fiber. When I got a bag in my Degustabox, I figured it would be a great addition to my recipe!
