Sunbutter Energy Bites


This is a fun recipe to try with your kids. We make them every weekend, because they serve as a great snack or even a quick breakfast (we usually eat 3 at a time). Plus, they’re school-friendly as they contain no nuts. In fact they check a lot of boxes…

  • kid-friendly
  • decent protein
  • nutrient-packed (SunButter is rich vitamin E and magnesium)
  • gluten free
  • dairy free
  • nut free
  • sugars only from honey
  • real food ingredients

There’s no baking required. You just mix all ingredients, roll into balls (this job is great for pudgy hands) and pop into the freezer for about 20 minutes. I actually like to eat them frozen. It’s *kinda* like cookie dough.


  • 1 cup old fashioned oats (gluten free)
  • 1/2 cup SunButter (sunflower seed butter)
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seeds
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened shredded dried coconut
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Mix all ingredients. Roll into 1/2 inch balls. Freeze for 20 minutes and enjoy. (Note: If balls are too crumbly, try adding another spoonful of honey to lend more stickiness.)
