No-Bake Energy Bites For Kids

These energy bites are a nutritious snack to pack in your child’s lunchbox

It can be difficult to pack your child’s lunch with snacks that you can both agree on; ones that are yummy, nutritious and contain ingredients you can actually pronounce!

We like these no-bake energy bites that are made with sensible ingredients such as whole grain oats, either your favourite nut butter or a nut-free alternative and dark chocolate chips. We added hemp protein powder and chia seeds for protein, healthy omegas and fibre, while 100% pure maple syrup and vanilla extract give a touch of sweetness to the recipe. You can easily whip up a batch of these on a Sunday night and have a healthful school snack to send off with your little one for the week.


They’re also great for when you go out with your child and need to quickly grab a snack to take along with you.

This recipe yields about 15-18 energy balls, depending on the size you make them. Three or four bites a day make a great snack for kids and will keep them satisfied between meals. They’re perfect for little mouths and easy to eat, plus they are a healthier alternative to packaged granola bars and cookies, yet still have a great taste and the sweetness kids crave.

Best of all, these snacks are super quick to make—they’re ready in less that an hour with the use of just one bowl, plus there’s no need for baking. This means you’ll be able to spend more time with your family and less time cleaning up. With their yummy taste and satisfyingly soft and chewy texture, these kid-friendly bites are sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike—you’ll want to make some for yourself!


1 cup oats

¼ cup dark chocolate chips

¼ cup black ground chia

2 tbsp dark chocolate hemp protein powder

½ cup nut butter of choice or nut-free alternative

3 tbsp 100% pure maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract


Combine oats, chocolate chips, chia and protein powder in a bowl. Stir until well combined.

Add nut butter or nut-free alternative, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Mix well, until an even batter forms.

Place the mixture in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to allow the batter to become slightly firmer.

Remove the bowl from the fridge. Using your hands, roll the dough into balls approximately 1-inch thick.

Refrigerate and enjoy throughout the week!
