When I’m on top of my meal prep game, I love making energy bites. They’re a great alternative when you need something sweet but are trying to find a healthier option. These oatmeal raisin energy bites taste just like an oatmeal raisin cookie. And not only are they delicious, but they take no time to make!
I’ve shared cranberry almond energy bites along with monster energy bites here before. They’re always a popular post- the views go up around the new year when many people are starting off with healthier resolutions and in the summer months. Gotta love bathing suit season!
Here is your line up of ingredients-
instant rolled oats, raisins, almond butter, chia seeds, flax seed meal, cinnamon and honey.
To make these, you’ll need a medium size bowl and a wooden spatula. First pour oats into the bowl. On top of the oats, add the almond butter, flax seed meal, cinnamon, chia seeds and honey. Now, you’ll have to get your muscles ready to start mixing. Sometimes I use my hands, it makes it a lot easier. Once you combine those ingredients, add in the raisins and mix again. Once the ingredients are fully combined, use a small cookie scoop to make them into balls. Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
You can either enjoy them immediately or place in an airtight container in the fridge to enjoy them throughout the week. If you think your oatmeal raisin energy bites are a bit soft after making them, let them sit in the fridge for about 20 minutes before putting them in a container. They can be kept in the fridge for up to two weeks.
I love it when something that tastes so good is also filled with nutritious ingredients, which in turn keeps you full much longer. If you’re not a fan or raisins, you can easily replace the raisins with chocolate chips!
