Blueberry Energy Bites

These dark chocolate blueberry energy bites are such a delicious treat to keep around. They’re made with a few pantry staples, like rolled oats, walnuts, tahini, and dried blueberries.

I love stocking my fridge with energy bites because they’re easy to make with simple ingredients, and convenient to grab when you’re in a pinch for time. They’re the perfect light bite before a workout or as an afternoon treat!

Energy bites pack in whole-grains, heart-healthy fats, and can be flavored in endless ways. They’re always a go-to of mine when I need something light and quick on hand.

These walnut blueberry bites have the perfect sweet & salty flavor filled with so many feel-good ingredients.

What you’ll need to make Walnut Blueberry Energy Bites

  • Rolled oats- the oats act as the base to this recipe. Quick-cooking rolled oats are ideal for this recipe since they’re already slightly processed and are a lot easier to chew when eaten raw
  • Walnuts- walnuts add a crunch in addition to heart-healthy omega 3 fats
  • Tahini, or your favorite nut butter- to help bind these bites together
  • Dried blueberries- for some delicious blueberry flavor
  • Maple syrup- a little goes a long way. Feel free to modify the amount you use!
  • Vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Everything gets blended together in a blender/food processor, then rolled into balls. I love topping mine off with a drizzle of dark chocolate and some chopped walnuts or freeze-dried blueberries.

PRO TIP: wet your hands before rolling the bites. The batter may be sticky, but wet hands help ease the process!

I can’t wait for you guys to try these bites! They’re going to be a new staple for you.
