Gluten free energy bites have become a staple in our house. They’re a tasty and healthy snack to keep in the fridge for lunch boxes, after school snacks, or any of those on-the-go moments.
I love keeping energy bites on hand to grab on the run (which I often am). This working mom of 4 needs quick and healthy options to keep me fueled all day long!
Gluten free energy bites are easy to make with healthy, real ingredients like whole grain oats, honey, peanut butter, and sometimes protein powder or other mix-ins.
When making gluten free energy bites, please be sure to use Purity Protocol gluten free oats. Gluten Free Watchdog has a great list HERE.
I love adding protein powder to gluten free energy bites. It helps stabilize blood sugar levels and will keep you full longer. Because this recipe calls for almond milk instead of honey or maple syrup, it’s also low in sugar. Each delicious bite has only 2 grams of sugar but still tastes amazing.
My kids think they taste like cookie dough 🙂
I’ve been searching for a good vegan protein powder for a few years and have tried half a dozen brands. While I am not one to waste food, most of them have ended up in the trash 🙁
A few months ago I tried a new vegan protein powder called OWYN (Only What You Need). I was pleasantly surprised with the smooth and creamy texture and it actually tastes good!
All their protein powders and ready-to-drink shakes are free from the top 8 allergens, making them perfect for this food allergy family.
These Gluten Free Energy Bites are great when you want a treat without really having a treat…you know what I mean. Hope you enjoy them!
Gluten Free Energy Bites (vegan, nut free option)
Yield 12 Energy Bites
1 cup gluten free oats (I use old fashioned)
6 T peanut butter (you can sub sunbutter if needed)
1/4 cup OWYN vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or other milk of choice)
2 T mini chocolate chips (optional)
Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in a food processor (I use a mini) and pulse until combined.
The consistency should be like a thick cookie dough, easy to form into balls but not very sticky. Add extra milk a teaspoon at a time if the mixture is too dry.
Store energy bites in the fridge. They also freeze well! Makes 12 energy bites.
