Kid-Approved Coconut Cinnamon Energy Bites
These Kid-Approved Coconut Cinnamon Energy Bites are a no-bake, gluten-free, healthy treat for kids’ lunchboxes and a great snack for the whole family.
Servings 12 servings
- 3/4 cup gluten-free rolled oats
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup flax meal
- 1/4 cup nut butter of your choice (see notes)
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 3 tsp coconut sugar
Add the rolled oats, coconut flour, honey, flax meal, and the nut butter to a food processor.
Blend the ingredients together until everything is well blended and a dough forms.
If the result is too crumbly and doesn’t stick together it is due to your nut butter. Add a teaspoon of water at a time to the food processor until the ingredients stick together to form a dough. See notes for more info.
Using clean hands, roll the dough into 1/2″to 1″ balls or 1" flattened cookies-shapes.
Mix the cinnamon and coconut sugar in a bowl. Roll or sprinkle the energy bites with the mixture until covered all around with a light layer of cinnamon-sugar.
Serve them immediately or store them in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Storing them in the refrigerator will also make them firmer and less crumbly.
- Certain nut butters will have more liquid than others. In my case the almond butter I use is much more runny than my peanut butter. Therefore, when I make these using the peanut butter I add about a teaspoon of water to help the dough stick together, but leave it out in the almond butter version.
