The Best Energy Bites!


  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup ground Golden Valley Flax
  • 1 cup nut butter (I used crunchy peanut butter)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • Dash of vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Add-ins: dark chocolate chips, shredded coconut, chopped nuts, dried fruit, chia seeds.


  1. In a food processor, add the oats and process until coarsely chopped. If you don’t have a food processor coarsely chop the oats in a blender or food grinder and add to a bowl.
  2. Add the ground Golden Valley Flax, nut butter, honey, vanilla and salt. Process/mix until the mixture comes together into a soft but not overly sticky ball.
  3. If the mixture is overly dry, add nut butter or honey, one tablespoon at a time and process/mix until the consistency is soft but not overly sticky or crumbly.
  4. Remove the blade from the food processor, if using.  Add any add-inn ingredients, and mix with your hands until evenly combined.  This is a good time for the kids to “help!”
  5. Roll the dough into balls (you can also use a small cookie scoop) and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet or tray. Refrigerate until firm enough to stack in a lidded container of in a bag.

The Best Ever Energy Bites can be frozen for several months or refrigerated for a week or so.  Of course, that has never happened in my house…because they always get eaten in the first 24 hours!
