No Bake Trail Mix Energy Bites

Easy, Nourishing, Satisfying and Yummy!

If you’ve followed me a while, you know that while we love our baked muffins, breads and treats, we also loooove No Bake Snacks and Treats!

For years now, we always have a stash of our favorite Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Energy Bites in the freezer (a snack everyone in my house eats multiple times a week!) and in the past year, with everyone home a lot, we’ve been loving adding new flavor energy bites into the mix as well!

They are perfect anytime snacks!

We have…

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

No Bake Brownie Bites

Walnut Chocolate Date Bliss Balls (an old favorite)

And today, we’re introducing a new one… No Bake Trail Mix Energy Bites!

They were inspired because I’ve been loving trail mix type snacks lately — reaching for handfuls of a homemade mix of walnuts, dried cranberries, dried apricots and dark chocolate chips…. but love the convenience of having pre-made energy bites in the freezer.

And they turned out exactly as I was hoping! They taste like a mix between our Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Energy Bites and a granola bar, and are so yummy!

They are packed with nutrients and super satisfying!

Perfect whether you need a mid-morning or late-afternoon snack or want to take a snack on the go to the beach or hiking!

No Bake Trail Mix Energy Bites gluten free www.healthygffamily.comSo let’s make them!

There’s a lot of room to customize to personal tastes or dietary needs, but here’s what we make them with…

9 Whole Food Ingredients:

almond butter (we used Barney Butter, affiliate link) (Substitute any nut or seed butter you love)

gluten-free rolled oats (we like GF Harvest, affiliate link)

shredded coconut (we like Let’s Do Organic, affiliate link)

maple syrup

dark chocolate chips ( or chocolate chip of choice, or even m&ms!)

dried cranberries or dried cherries or raisins

walnuts (or pecans)

pumpkin seeds

dried apricots (optional but I love!)

And all you do is literally add all the ingredients to one bowl and mix!

There’s no food processor or mixer required…. just good ol’ arm strength!

The mix will be thick and heavy so it does require a few good mixes to make sure it’s well combined.

At this point, you can taste it and see if there is anything else you want to add.

Then just roll them into balls of 1 to 1 1/2 inch in size.

Want one?

Every bite has a mix of flavors and textures and is so yummy and satisfying!

As they make a lot of energy bites, they store well too!

I tend to store more our energy bites in the freezer so they stay fresh longer,  but feel free to keep a few in the refrigerator too!
