Nut Free Energy Bites
My kids have a lot of friends with peanut and tree nut allergies. It is really hard to find snacks and energy bites with out at least some type of nut or nut butter. I adapted this recipe from a couple different energy bite recipes I found . I hope your kiddos enjoy!
- 1 cup of oats (old fashioned, quick oats, gluten free, anything)
- 3/4 cup cheerios
- ½ cup of sunflower seed butter
- ⅓ cup of honey (raw is best) or maple syrup (pure NOT pancake syrup!!)
- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
- 1/2 chocolate chips
Place the oats and Cheerios into a food processor and pulse until they are coarsely ground up.
Add the maple syrup and sunbutter, and pulse until a thick dough forms.
Stop the food processor and stir in the chocolate chips.
Use your hands to roll the dough into balls, and place them in a container with a lid.
Store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
