Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

Rolling into the weekend with another batch of our favorite energy bites

Just 5 ingredients & yummy!

If you’ve followed the Healthy Gluten-Free Family a while, you know that we are big fans of energy bites, or “bliss balls” as many call them. They are our go-to snack, any time of day.

There’s always a stash in our freezer of our favorite five-ingredient energy bite. It’s made with almond butter (we love Barney Butter), gluten-free oats, maple syrup, mini chips (another favorite, the chips from Enjoy Life Foods), and shredded coconut.

They are the perfect energy boost and we’ve been known to eat them at breakfast, on the go, for snacks or dessert… see how they disappear so quickly?!
