No bake energy bites

The Energy Bites Formula

Since Energy Bites are usually raw, meaning they do not need baking, they use ingredients that are safe to eat without baking. Here is my basic Energy Bites recipe, which can be easily modified based on your preferences or the ingredients you have on hand.

  • 1 1/2 cups nuts and seeds your choice
  • 1/2 cup oats or your favorite gluten-free flour
  • 1 cup Medjool Dates about 10 large dates, pitted
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil to bind the cookies together
  • 1-2 teaspoons flavoring cocoa powder or cinnamon, your choice


  1. Combine the ingredients in the base of a food processor and process on high until completely mixed, about 1 minute total. 

  2. Use your hands to form the mixture into a ball with a diameter of approximately 1-inch. You'll have enough mixture to make about a dozen energy bites. 
  3. Place the energy bites in the fridge to set, about 30 minutes. 
  4. Serve cold or at room temperature. Leftovers will last up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
