Delicious honey cinnamon almond butter energy bites that seriously taste like a cinnamon teddy graham! These easy almond butter energy bites are made without oats and are packed with fiber & protein from creamy almond butter, flaxseed meal, chia seeds and your fav protein powder. The perfect no bake snack!
- 1/2 cup natural, creamy drippy almond butter
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup flaxseed meal
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1/4 cup protein powder of choice (we like Vital Proteins)*
- 2 tablespoons chocolate chips, dairy free if desired
- Maldon sea salt, for sprinkling
In a medium bowl, add in almond butter, honey, vanilla and cinnamon; mix until well combined.
Next add in flaxseed meal, chia seeds, protein powder of choice and mini chocolate chips. At this point I usually have to use my hands to mix and work with the dough and get everything mixed together well. You should be able to form balls that stick together. Because all nut butter consistencies are different and depending on what protein powder you use, you may need to add in more nut butter or sweetener to help the balls stick together.
Roll dough into 8 balls and place on a plate; sprinkle with a little sea salt, then transfer to the bites to the fridge to firm up. Once firm (after about 15 minutes), you can transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 1 week. Makes 8 energy bites.
If you want to make these without protein powder, we suggest adding 1-2 tablespoons coconut flour or oat flour, or 2-3 tablespoons of almond flour until you can form into balls.
