We love simple and fuss-free recipes and @theseasonalvegetarian’s take on this recipe is definitely a must-try. It’s perfect for when you need a quick booster for your day ahead or a fun activity with your loved ones!

  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 3 tbsp of salted peanut or almond butter
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate (roughly chopped, optional — dairy-free)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2/3 cup of rolled oats (optional — gluten-free)
Grab our chia seeds here:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the old-fashioned oats, peanut butter, honey or maple syrup, ground flaxseed, chia seeds, mini chocolate chips (if using), vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
  2. Stir the mixture well until all the ingredients are evenly combined.
  3. Place the mixture in the refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes. This will make it easier to handle and shape the energy bites.
  4. After chilling, remove the mixture from the refrigerator.
  5. Using your hands, scoop out portions of the mixture and roll them into small bite-sized balls. If the mixture is sticky, you can lightly moisten your hands with water to prevent sticking.
  6. Place the rolled energy bites on a parchment-lined tray or plate.
  7. Once all the mixture is rolled into energy bites, you can refrigerate them for another 20-30 minutes to firm up.
  8. After chilling, transfer the energy bites to an airtight container.
  9. Store the Peanut Butter & Chia Seed Energy Bites in the refrigerator. They can be enjoyed as a convenient and nutritious snack whenever you need an energy boost.


Note: Feel free to customize these energy bites by adding other mix-ins like dried fruits, chopped nuts, or different types of seeds. Adjust the sweetness by using more or less honey or maple syrup according to your preference.

These Peanut Butter & Chia Seed Energy Bites are a great on-the-go snack that provides a good balance of healthy fats, protein, and fiber.
