Caramel Energy Bites


Caramel Energy Bites

A delish no bake snack or a quick breakfast you can have on the go. The perfect snack for pretty much anyone especially for those who lead a busy lifestyle or love to refuel as soon as possible after a workout.
Energy bites are usually made up of a combination of nuts, seeds, nut butter, dried fruits and your favourite protein powder. They are so simple to make, easily adaptable, and can be tailored to your personal likes.
You can hold them at an ambient temperature, which makes them perfect for popping into a container and throwing in your gym bag or handbag, ready for a mid-afternoon pick me up or post-workout fuel up. Because there is no cooking involved, they are also a snack that can be made quickly.
Remember that the protein powder can also help elevate the flavour, by using a caramel, chocolate, peanut or vanilla they can bring some serious flavour to the party without the need for adding a whole list of other ingredients.
Course Breakfast, Dessert, Snack


  • 1 cup almonds or walnuts (or a mix)
  • 1/2 cup peanut (or any other nut or seed) butter
  • 1/2 cup hemp hearts (seeds)
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup protein powder of choice
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)


  • Place almonds and coconut into a food processer and process until broken down and crumbly. Add peanut butter, protein powder, honey and vanilla extract and continue to process until mixture is sticky and well combined.
    Be careful not to over process as its nice to have texture and different sized “bits” in your energy bites.
  • Scoop the mixture out into a bowl and add the hemp seeds and chocolate chips if using and mix together until combined.
    If the dough seems too dry, add a splash of milk, water or extra peanut butter to soften it a bit.
    Use a cookie scoop or a regular spoon and roll into little logs or balls with about 1 1/2 tablespoons of “dough.” Use your hands to kind of smoosh the ingredients together,
    Roll in coconut or hemp seeds and place in the fridge to set for about an hour.
