Looking for an on-the-go snack that’s versatile enough to take you from your workout, to a mid-morning snack, or to your kid’s lunchbox? These easy Almond Chocolate Chip Energy Bites do the trick!
We’ve already established that I’m a big fan of snacks. The springtime is always so busy with activities, so on-the-go snack are key. Whether your kids play spring sports, you need a new lunchbox snack, you’re looking for a travel snack to take on vacation, or maybe you’re looking for a snack to eat before or after your workouts - these bites are perfect for all that!
Energy bites are quite simple and tend to have the same basic recipe. An oat base mixed with a nut or seed butter, sweetened with honey or maple syrup and a fun mix-in, like chocolate chips, nuts, or dried fruits. I decided to stray from my normal favorite, peanut butter with this one and use almond butter. I used a natural almond butter that’s literally just almonds ground up. It has the perfect consistency to hold the bites together. For these bites I pulsed the oats in my food processor to get more of a coarse, floury texture, but you could just as easily use them as is.
Why are energy bites a great on-the-go snack?
