Easy Snacking OR a Balanced Breakfast
Too often, it seems like I write off my snacking and don’t think about balance like I do with meals. (Is it just me?) Because, when I’m snacking, I want easy and convenient. But, with meals, I’ll put in more time and consideration. (Usually…)
Luckily, with these oatmeal energy bites, I get the best of both worlds! First off, these are no bake energy bites, so no oven and no cooking. Really, I just toss everything in a bowl, roll the mix into balls, and my snack is ready in minutes! Most importantly, every ingredient that goes into them is clean and wholesome.
Packing Fuel into Your Oatmeal Energy Bites
Just like a bowl of oatmeal, the main ingredient in my oatmeal energy bites is oats! So, I’m getting complex carbs for lasting energy, plenty of fiber, and wholesome micronutrients. Plus, I’ve got simple carbs in the prunes’ natural sugars. And, their sweetness allows me to keep the added sugars low in this recipe!
Then, the indulgent walnut butter and walnuts add some nutritious fats to the mix. This helps to complement the carbs, since I’m going for a balance of nutrients. And, it helps these oatmeal energy bites to actually satisfy my hunger!
Of course, their bite-sized nature makes these perfect for healthy snacking. But, the ingredients and the taste are just like a nutritious bowl of oatmeal. Ultimately, how and when you enjoy these oatmeal energy bites is up to you! A great meal prep breakfast or a simple on-the-go snack. Or, a stay-at-home snack—because, why not?!
