Double Chocolate Energy Bites

Double chocolate energy bites are perfect for any time that your sweet tooth or hunger craving needs a fix from something that is actually good for you. These tasty morsels are made with fiber-rich oats and ground flaxseeds and are held together with chocolate peanut butter and honey. I added mini chocolate chips to boost the chocolate indulgence!

  • ½ cup (4.75 ounces) chocolate peanut butter (See Tip 1)
  • cup (4 ounces) honey (See Tip 2)
  • 1 ¼ cups (4 ounces) old-fashioned oats (See Tip 3)
  • ½ cup (3.125 ounces) mini chocolate chips (See Tip 4)
  • 3 Tablespoons ground flax seeds (See Tip 5)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon Kosher salt


  • Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl until well-mixed. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Form the mixture into 1-inch balls. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. (See Tip 6)
  • Yield: 20 Double Chocolate Energy Bites. (See Tip 7)



  1. May use regular or chunky peanut butter plus two tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa in place of the chocolate peanut butter.
  2. May use maple syrup in place of the honey.
  3. May use regular oats instead of the old-fashioned variety.
  4. Use regular chocolate chips or M&M’s instead of mini chocolate chips. Alternatively, you can replace the chocolate chips with toasted pecans, toasted almond pieces, or peanuts.
  5. May use chia seeds or sunflower seeds in place of the flax seeds.
  6. I used a tablespoon ice cream scoop to help form the energy bites, but you could use a spoon to partition out about one tablespoon of the mixture per ball.
  7. The energy bites should be refrigerated in an airtight container. They will keep for two weeks.
