No-Bake Energy Bites

There has been an energy bite craze in recent history. I myself, have been susceptible to this craze. They are perfect for dense energy that you can eat before or during your run. They are easy to make, simple to switch up ingredients for when you want a change, small but full of fairly good calories, taste awesome, and are easy to take with you on a long run. I wrap mine up in a piece of plastic wrap to fuel my long training runs or for trail races where I have my hydration pack.

Ingredients that I already had in the house.

Final product. Pairs nicely with black coffee.

No-Bake Energy Bites

1 3/4 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup honey

3/4 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup chocolate chips

*I included cinnamon and chia seeds in mine today.

Optional: cinnamon, cocoa powder, dried fruit, chia seeds, flax seeds, coconut flakes, Stevia, even a little protein powder
Cream together the honey and peanut butter Then mix the rolled oats into the sticky goodness. Lastly, add the chocolate chips. Eat a few bites for good measure before rolling into balls. You won’t regret it.

You can also freeze them to reduce any stickiness that might occur when running in the heat. I wrap mine in a little bit of plastic wrap, stick them in the freezer, and then am good to go for my run.

Stay energized, rad, and happy!
