Back again with another energy bite recipe! These are probably my favorite to date and they are flavorful with just enough bite from the ginger. These are a great thing to throw in your lunch bag for a snack during the day or something you can eat on your way to work as well.
Best nursing snack
I also prepped a lot of these when I was pregnant with Lincoln (he’s 20 months now!) because I knew how handy it would be to get a nutritious bite in whenever I could. These were the best nursing snack I made ahead of time and was able to keep in the freezer up to three months. If they lasted that long! I also breastfed my son for six months and these were my favorite middle of the night snack along with a cheese stick and pickles. Weird, I know.
Grab the Cocoa Ginger Energy Bite recipe below!
- 1/3 cup crystallized ginger
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup peanut butter (or almond butter – or any nut butter!)
- 1 cup oats (rolled, quick, or steel cut)
- 1/3 cup flax meal
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup honey
- Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse until finely ground and mixed together.
- Roll into 12-15 energy bites and enjoy from the fridge or freezer for later.
I hope you’ll give these a try! This is a great recipe to make with kids if you’re at home with them and need an activity. One, because it’s mostly measure (or estimate) and pour. Two, lots of kids love getting involved in the cooking and may try new foods as a result of it. Lastly, the end product is a snack and we all know kids love snacks. 🤪 I’ve got a lot of other energy bite recipes as well if you’d like some different options:
Where would you be snacking on these bites? Work? Home? While running away from your toddler so you can eat your snack in peace? Just me? 😛
