Peanut Butter Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Energy Bites

I have a perfect snack for the weekend that tastes just like a cookie but is packed with healthy ingredients – Peanut Butter Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Energy Bites!

 

 

I used a few of my favorite ingredients for this snack, including unsweetened peanut butter and Baker Miller steel cut oats {check out a recap of my first visit here}. Baker Miller’s oats are sourced in the Midwest. Baker Miller is a stone-mill bakery and restaurant in the Lincoln Square neighborhood that grinds their own flour and oats. Check out their online flour shop for more details {not sponsored, I just love these oats!}.

K and I are packing these energy bites on an upcoming road trip for snacks, and leaving a few in the freezer for later. These healthy bites also include raisins, raw almonds, and dates. I used regular California dates for this recipe, instead of Medjool dates. California dates are much smaller so you need less than if you use Medjool.

A simple no-bake snack recipe that tastes exactly like your favorite cookie.

Servings 16 energy bites

Ingredients

  • 24 California dates
  • 2/3 cup raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup steel cut oats {uncooked}
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup raisins

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor. Process the mixture a few times. Stop the processor and use a spatula to re-combine the mix if needed.

  2. Keep processing until the ingredients are evenly combined {I like to use the "pulse" function}.

  3. Remove from the food processor and use a medium cookie scoop and your hands to form the mix into balls.

  4. Refrigerate covered for ~2 hours or overnight to harden. Keep refrigerated or freeze.
