Pumpkin Spice No-Bake Energy Bites

January 16, 2014 2 min read

Healthy and packed full of power! I just made these and I think I am going to die! I can't even begin to tell you how amazing these are. My kids loved them so much we made a second batch in another flavor and froze half of both batches for next week. The possibilities are endless; there are so many combinations all over the internet. If you have a food processor, it gets super easy to make them ball-up too. Energy Bites are are perfect when you are on the go and make a great alternative to expensive protein bars. I am going to try them out as pre-run/pre-workout nutrition. I imagine they will be most effective if I eat two of them about 15-30 minutes before or even mid-way through a long run.

 Ingredients:

1 cup oatmeal (dry)
1 1/2 tsp Pumpkin Spice (I use the Spice Islands brand)
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed or wheat germ
1/2 cup cranberries (optional)
1/3 cup pure maple syrup (the real stuff, not Mrs Butterworth's) 
1 tsp. vanilla
 

Instructions: 

Stir all ingredients together in a bowl until mixed well. Let chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or so. Once chilled, roll into balls (1- 1 1/2 inches). Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week or freeze for 2-4 weeks. Makes about 20-25 balls.

Modifications:

**Swap almond butter with any nut butter (peanut butter, sunflower seed butter, etc.) I have also been told you can use rice cereal or other grains instead of oatmeal but I have not attempted it.** Remove the pumpkin spice and drizzle with white chocolate Dried apricots, almond butter, oatmeal, vanilla protein powder, honey and vanilla Chocolate Chips, Chia Seeds (1tsp), Peanut Butter, oatmeal, honey and vanilla (also could sub chocolate chips for butterscotch  or white chocolate chips) Raisins, almond butter, oatmeal, maple syrup, chopped almonds and vanilla rolled in cinnamon Dates (2x the amount as we're omitting a nut butter), oatmeal, sunflower seeds, lemon juice, vanilla, rolled in coconut Dried cherries, white chocolate or milk chocolate chips, almond butter, oatmeal, honey and vanilla, rolled in vanilla protein powder Dried Blueberries, peanut butter, oatmeal, chopped peacans, honey and vanilla chopped almonds, pecans, walnuts, or sunflower seeds
