Chia Seed Energy Bites are a quick and easy snack! Kids and adults alike will love them and they are easily customized with your favorite flavors.
Remember my Blood Orange Challenge with Stephanie of Sustaining the Powers last month? Well, we are at it again with another recipe challenge! This month we used an ingredient I have been wanting to try: chia seeds. Join us and our guest host, Haylea of Bowl of Happiness as we share our creations!
As I mentioned, I’ve been itching to try making some recipes using chia seeds. I’ve been seeing them in all sorts of yummy recipes on Pinterest, from puddings to snack bars.
I’ve been trying to find healthy snacks to eat when I get off work. Something with lots of nutritious ingredients that would get me ready to hit the gym. These bites were just the thing!
Packed with all sorts of goodness, these energy bites are sure to fuel your afternoon. They are a snack I look forward to eating each afternoon, and the best part is they are guilt free.
You can replace those expensive bars and snack on these energy balls instead. Make a big batch, they’ll last for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Anytime you need a little pick-me-up you can grab a couple to munch on.
This snack is so easy to make! It will only take you a few minutes to get everything mixed up. Put the mix in the refrigerator to cool while you get a few things done. Then roll them up and enjoy!
How to Customize these Chia Seed Energy Bites
The beauty of this recipe is that it’s so easy to customize and change up. Try adding nuts, different dried fruits or anything else you fancy.
These Chia Seed Energy Bites are so flavorful. I love how the dark chocolate complements the dried cranberries. Add in the wonderful texture of the oats and seeds and you have a snack you will want to make again and again.
