We’re 7 days into the new year. How’s it going so far?

I don’t know if you made any resolutions, but perhaps these wholesome, easy-to-make energy bites can help you stick with any healthy eating-related goals. They’re packed with protein, healthy fats, and fiber, and they taste like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!

Yes, all of your dreams can come true. Let me show you how!

INSANELY Delicious + Healthy PB&J Energy Bites! Full of fiber and protein, 7 ingredients, + naturally sweetened! #vegan #glutenfree #protein #snack #recipe

These energy bites require just 7 ingredients, 15 minutes, and 1 bowl to make!

The base is peanut butter, maple syrup, protein powder, and oats. Flaxseeds and chia seeds are added for plant-based protein and fiber plus a serving of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids!

The “jelly” in this recipe comes from dried fruit. I personally love dried strawberries, cherries, and blueberries, but virtually any dried fruit will do.

I hope you all love these energy bites! They’re:

Peanut Buttery
Fruity
Full of protein (~5 g protein per bite!)
Salty-sweet
& Super healthy!

These would make the perfect on-the-go snack or healthy dessert. They pack easily and keep in the freezer for at least 1 month! I personally love reaching for 1 or 2 in the afternoon with tea. They’re the perfect little pick-me-up.

Recipe type: Snack

Cuisine: Vegan, Gluten Free

Serves: 14

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (128 g) creamy salted peanut butter (or almond, cashew, or sunbutter)
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) maple syrup (or sub finely chopped dates)
  • 2 Tbsp (~ 10 g) protein powder* (optional – just omit if you don’t have any)
  • 1 1/4 cup (112 g) gluten-free rolled oats*
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp (17.5 g) flaxseed meal
  • 2 Tbsp (24 g) chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup (30 g) dried fruit (i.e. dried strawberries, cherries, blueberries, cranberries)

Instructions

  1. To a large mixing bowl, add peanut butter, maple syrup, protein powder, rolled oats, flaxseed meal, chia seeds, and dried fruit of choice. Mix until well combined. If too dry/crumbly, add more peanut butter or maple syrup. If too sticky or wet, add a little bit more oats or flaxseed meal.
  2. Chill in the refrigerator for 5 minutes. Then scoop out 1 1/2 Tbsp amounts (I like using this scoop) and roll into balls. The “dough” should yield about 13-14 balls.
  3. Enjoy immediately and store well-sealed leftovers in the refrigerator for 1 week or in the freezer up to 1 month (or more).
