Banana Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

May 15, 2017


Healthy make-ahead energy ball recipe….








1¼ cup rolled oats

¼ cup ground flaxseed

1 tablespoon chia seeds

⅓ cup maple syrup

¼ cup almond butter

1 ripe banana, mashed

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips







  1. In a medium to large bowl mix together all of the ingredients. Cover the bowl and let the batter sit in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours or overnight. The batter will be wet but will firm as it sits.

  2. Form into 20 balls. It will be helpful to have your hands wet as you roll the balls. Also, you press the oats into a ball more than actually rolling it.

  3. Let the balls sit in the refrigerator for a couple hours or overnight. The balls will firm as they sit. Enjoy for breakfast or snacks.



These banana chocolate chip energy balls can (and should) be made ahead of time. They can be in the refrigerator up to 5-6 days or in the freezer up to 3 months. Let the bites thaw on the counter for 20 minutes or so.
