When you’re trying to get fit, snacks present a challenge. You want something that’s quick to grab, yet packed with nutrients, and while a healthy snack is the goal, finding something that tastes good is the ideal. If you have allergies, there’s a whole new level to the struggle, because prepackaged snacks almost always have something on the ingredients list that you or someone in your family can’t have. That’s why this recipe for allergy-friendly energy bites is such a find. It makes a perfect quick breakfast, lunchbox treat, or after school snack and it’s free from the top eight allergens.
What makes these tasty little treats so healthy? They have oats, mini chocolate chips, and sunflower seed butter so they’re just the right combination of protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats. Pulled from food blogger Kelly Roenicke’s site, The Pretty Bee, they require no baking, and they’re remarkably customizable. Don’t care for sunflower seed butter? Try another variety of seed butter that’s more to your liking- pumpkin seed butter is an excellent option. Not interested in chocolate chips? Dried fruit works just as well. Not a fan of maple syrup? Go for honey, agave, or date syrup.
- Certified gluten-free old-fashioned oats
- Gluten-free Cheerios (or extra oats, if you prefer)
- Maple syrup
