Nut-Free Energy Bites

For kids with nut allergies or kids with nut-free schools, finding sweet alternatives can be difficult. If nut allergies aren’t an issue, feel free to use your favorite peanut butter in place of the sunflower seed butter.



  • 1 cup rolled oats

    1/4 cup ground flax meal

    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    Pinch of sea salt
    1 cup mini chocolate chips
    1/2 cup sunflower seed butter
    1/4 cup Andrew’s Honey Bees Raw Honey
    1 teaspoon Griffin’s Vanilla

  • Step 1In a medium-size bowl, stir together oats, flax, cinnamon and salt. Stir in chocolate chips. Add sunflower seed butter, honey and vanilla. Using clean hands or a spoon, mix until ingredients are combined. If batter seems dry, add more honey.

    Step 2Form into 1-inch balls, then place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place in freezer for 20 minutes or until firm, then store in the refrigerator or freezer.
    Note: These are perfect for tucking into a lunchbox. If placed in the lunchbox frozen, they will thaw before lunch time.
