Oatmeal Energy Bites

No Bake Fruity Oatmeal Energy Bites – Easy Healthy Vegan Snack!

Take your fruit-and-nut oatmeal on-the-go with these fruity oatmeal energy bites! With a fresh, fruity splash of citrus, these babes are delicious as a healthy snack or a quick breakfast. And, thanks to the walnut butter holding everything together, these are also NO BAKE energy bites!

Personally, my favorite part about these oatmeal energy bites is all of the different textures. Chewy oats and prunes, creamy nut butter, crunchy walnuts—so much deliciousness! Plus, loads of wholesome fuel to keep you energized and satisfied.

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?!
