No-bake Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

One of my all-time favorite freezer staples are these no-bake energy bites. They’re made purely from pantry staples and take 15-20 minutes to throw together! They’re the perfect hassle-free sweet fix.

During the summer heat, but even all year round, I always crave something quick and satisfying, especially after a workout. These no-bake chocolate chip energy bites are a great grab-n-go snack to hold you over before your actual meal.

No-bake Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

No-bake Chocolate Chip Energy Bites Ingredients:

  • Rolled oats- quick or rolled oats would work well for these
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips- I know I specified a measurement, but the more the better!
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt, always!

The best part about these energy bites is that they’re completely customizable. You can swap out the nut butter for a different nut or seed variety, add in dried fruit and even crushed nuts. Feel free to play around with these, because you truly can’t go wrong with these.

  1. These taste just like oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!! Such a delicious little snack

  2. These are honestly the best thing for school, or work, or before a morning run, when you need something in your stomach, but cannot eat something too filling. So good, I love energy balls. Also loved the coconut lemon ones from your insta!!

    I just made some this afternoon and YUM! I appreciate how simple and customizable this recipe is compared to others I have tried. These are perfect for a quick pre-workout boost or a late afternoon snack paired with a cup of coffee. If you’re in a baking mood, try out the almond flour chocolate chip cookies too which are equally as delicious!

    • Thank you so much for your thoughtful feedback, Nadine! The almond flour chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorites 🙂
