Energy Bites (Improved 2021 Recipe!)

I am pretty much going to skip the story of my favorite snack because I am pretty sure this is their third appearance on the blog and it’s because we love them so dang much! I have been making this modified recipe for about a year and love it! Hope you do too 🙂


2/3 cup Honey

1 cup Peanut Butter

2 cups Oatmeal

2/3 cup Ground Flaxseed

1 + 1/3 cup Unsweetened Coconut Flakes

1/4 cup Sliced Almonds

2 Tbsp Chia Seeds

2 Tbsp Poppy Seeds

1 Tbsp Vanilla

1/2 cup Mini M&M’s


  1. Stir all ingredients (minus M&Ms) together until thoroughly mixed. I use my kitchen aid.
  2. Fold in M&M candies.
  3. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. *This part is optional but I find it is easier to roll into a ball.
  4. Roll into balls. I almost always use a cookie scoop now to keep a consistant size!
  5. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week – if they stick around that long!!! You can also freeze them.
