No bake energy bites recipe. A snack (or breakfast) that you don't have to feel guilty about eating. Repin to save!

I’m always up for a healthy, no-bake dessert/snack recipe.

Especially ones that take just a couple of minutes to throw together.

These no-bake energy bites from Gimme Some Oven taste somewhat between chewy chocolate chip granola bars and oatmeal-chocolate chip cookie dough.

They totally pass for dessert in my book, but are so much more healthy than cookies, brownies, or cake.

They’re great for an on-the-go snack or even for breakfast with some yogurt and fresh fruit.

Give them a try. You probably have all the ingredients on hand in your kitchen right now.

Ready? Go!

Make These Into Energy Bars Instead

You can also make these into bars that are vegan and healthy. Simply grease a small square baking pan, add the oat mixture, refrigerate, cut, and serve.
