  • 2 cups organic GF Rolled Oats
  • 3/4 cup almond butter (See Notes!)
  • 2 Tbsps organic chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate baking chips
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup chopped toasted pecans (See Notes!)


  • Add all ingredients to large bowl and mix everything together using one or both hands to ensure that all ingredients are well combined.
  • Immediately, add mixture in bowl to the refrigerator (covered) and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Once chilled, scoop 1 1/2 Tbsps of mixture and using both hands—roll into a small ball. Repeat until all mixture is made. **NOTE: Be sure to add energy bites to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to ensure that they remain perfectly shaped.**
  • Now, refrigerate rolled bites again for 5 minutes or so!
  • Remove from refrigerator and enjoy!

  • STORAGE: Can be kept refrigerated (covered) for up 2 weeks.
  • SWEETENER: If you choose to opt out of maple syrup, you can always substitute with Agave, date syrup, or vegan ‘Honee’ as well.
  • NUT BUTTER:Instead of using almond butter, you can also substitute with Peanut Butter, Sunflower Seed Butter, Tahini, Soynut Butter, Pecan Butter, Hazelnut Butter, or Granola Butter.
  • TOASTED PECANS: Add chopped pecans to a baking sheet and toasting them in the oven (400 degrees Fahrenheit) for 5-10 minutes, tossing them halfway to avoid browning on one side.
