Healthy No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola Bites (Energy Bites)

I got hipped to energy bites in 2006 when I visited this amazing Farmers Market in Hermosa Beach. Talk about a variety of healthy snacks!! It seemed like as soon as I got home recipes for these amazing granola energy bites were popping up everywhere! Isn’t that crazy how that happens?

If you’re wondering what the heck is an energy bite? Well it’s a little ball of healthy, wholesome ingredients that will keep you full and satisfy that sweet tooth. You can really make them into any shape you want but balls are so cute. It’s basically just a form of healthy granola with a cool name that makes you wonder what it tastes like.

These peanut butter chocolate energy bites are freaking awesome because:

Ok you get the point and it’s always a great thing to have recipes for healthy no-baked snacks right? Well go ahead and add this to the list because they are fantastic!!

It didn’t take long for me to start experimenting with different flavors thanks to pinterest! Chocolate peanut butter is my favorite hands down though!! You just can’t go wrong with the classic chocolate peanut butter combination.

These no-bake energy bites really knocks out my sweet tooth and keep me from snacking on cake and cookies. Y’all know my sweet tooth is something fierce…um hello cookies and cream blondies topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup, remember those? lol

You guys begged me to post a “healthier” snack option after that recipe and I knew instantly that these peanut butter chocolate energy bites would be a great option for all my dieters out there (including me!)

Here are the brands that I used. I got everything from Target except for the honey.


Homemade Aussie Bites

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Prepare a mini muffin pan with nonstick spray.

Combine the first 9 ingredients (oat flour through salt) in a medium bowl. Add dried fruit, butter, honey, vanilla, and egg white. Mix everything together thoroughly&mdashusing your hands helps! Your mixture should resemble oatmeal cookie dough.

Fill about 16 muffin molds with the dough, pressing them down and filling them to the top. Bake for about 10 minutes or until sides are golden brown. Let them sit for 10&ndash15 minutes before trying to remove them from the pan.

Let them cool before eating. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. They should last for several days. I actually like them better the day after I made them!

Have you tried Aussie Bites? They&rsquore like the love child of an oatmeal cookie and a granola bar&mdashpacked with oats and seeds and bits of dried fruit. They&rsquore sweet, but not too sweet, and have a delightfully chewy texture.

I&rsquom a chewy texture kind of girl. I&rsquom also sort of crunchy, but in a different context&mdashwhich is why I wanted to make a homemade version of these in the first place.

Store-bought Aussie Bites are organic and actually on the healthy side, but the control freak in me likes to have a say in the types and amounts of oils and sweeteners that I bake with.

I also like to bake with my little humans when I&rsquom feeling adventurous. It goes without saying that when anyone under the age of 8 &ldquohelps&rdquo in the kitchen, it actually takes twice as long and makes a bigger mess. But that&rsquos not the point, right? #bonding #ifmypatienceallows

Let&rsquos get started, and I&rsquoll show you how easy these are to put together!

First you&rsquoll need some oat flour. You can buy oat flour, but I find it&rsquos easiest to throw some oats into my super powered blender and make my own.

To make these chewy, add sunflower seeds, coconut, quinoa, and a few other tidbits &mdash including flax meal which I love using. It gives baked goods a cool nutty flavor without adding nuts.

Aussie Bites are nut-free, by the way. Another bonus if you&rsquore dealing with allergies!

Get all of the dried ingredients mixed well.

Oh, the chewiness doesn&rsquot end there. Chop up some dried apricots and raisins and add those, too. You could actually add any chopped up dried fruit you like, but apricots and raisins are the easiest to find unsweetened, if you&rsquore not wanting to up the sugar content.

You also need some butter, vanilla, and an egg white. And some honey. You could probably use pure maple syrup, here, too.

I haven&rsquot tried these with coconut oil instead of butter, so I can&rsquot guarantee the texture would be the same. If you try them that way, leave a comment and let us know how it went!

Also, can we talk about how vanilla still costs approximately one million dollars a bottle? I&rsquod be tempted to become a vanilla bean farmer if everything I put in the ground didn&rsquot die a horrible death. And if I didn&rsquot mind living in the tropics. Now that I think of it, being a vanilla bean farmer would be a terrible idea for me.

Now comes the fun part. This is always my 3-year-old&rsquos favorite part, right up there with cracking eggs. Mix everything up really well and make sure that butter gets spread around evenly.

You should have a mixture that resembles oatmeal cookie dough.

Prep a mini muffin tin with some nonstick spray (I love using coconut oil spray) and fill about 16 of those cups. Bake them for about 10 minutes at 350ºF.

You can definitely make a larger batch of these to freeze or share with friends!

Actually, yeah. Make a double batch. It&rsquos hard to keep these around,especially when you have little ones with longer eyelashes than you and you have a hard time saying no.

These bites are super versatile. They&rsquore nut-free as is, but you could add some nut flour or some baking spices to put your own spin on them. And if you do, share your flavor combinations with us!


Healthy Apple Pie Granola Bar Bites


For nearly an entire year during high school, I maintained the same afternoon routine. After Mom picked me up from one of the residential cul-de-sacs next to the campus and drove home (the line of cars to get into the itty bitty loading zone in front of the school office always stretched out for nearly a quarter of a mile!), I dropped my backpack at the kitchen table and wandered into the pantry to grab a snack.

For the next 15 minutes, I decompressed from the day by opening our family laptop and navigating to one of my favorite websites, a game-oriented one that displayed a new jigsaw puzzle every morning. With the website’s timer running in the top right corner, I carefully maneuvered the pieces with the mouse, dragging and dropping them into place, until the picture was complete. And if that day’s puzzle was too easy and took less than my self-allotted time, I clicked the “puzzle randomizer” button to try another one.

To this day, I still love jigsaw puzzles. The more pieces the better!


While working on the puzzle, and then on my homework assignments after, I slowly nibbled on my snack of choice: almost always a soft-baked Nutri-Grain bar. The kind with nearly the same texture as chewy cookies and a sweet, fruity jam-like filling. Back then, I figured that the fruit component made them healthier than the chewy Chips Ahoy! chocolate chip cookies that also sat on our pantry’s snack shelf… Right?

Although Mom often bought boxes of strawberry and blueberry, I mainly favored the apple cinnamon flavor. (I’m still a huge cinnamonaholic, and I have to buy the 18-ounce jars just because I go through it so quickly!) With that filling, those Nutri-Grain bars basically tasted like apple pie!


Now that I better understand nutrition labels, I’ve realized my “healthier-because-it-has-fruit-in-the-filling” justification wasn’t very reasonable, and those snack bars weren’t exactly the best healthy option… But these homemade Healthy Apple Pie Granola Bar Bites certainly are! Unlike my childhood snack, these contain lots of fresh apple, plenty of wholesome ingredients, and no refined flour or sugar!


For your granola bar base, you’ll use a combination of old-fashioned oats and brown rice cereal . I know, it sounds a little strange, but it totally works! The oats provide that classic hearty granola bar texture, while the airy brown rice cereal adds the perfect complementary contrast.

This is the brown rice cereal that I buy, and I love it because it only contains brown rice and salt—no crazy additives or preservatives! You can find it at many health-oriented grocery stores, as well as online, and my local Safeway has even started to carry it.


To hold the granola bar bites together, you’ll use unsweetened applesauce and Greek yogurt . The applesauce adds plenty of natural sweetness too, so you’ll only need to add a couple tablespoons of honey! As you probably know by now if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, Greek yogurt is one of my favorite ingredients in healthy baking. It keeps these granola bar bites tender and chewy, and it gives them a protein boost, too!

And of course, we can’t forget the diced apple and cinnamon for that iconic apple pie flavor! It’s important to dice the apples finely, no larger than the size of miniature chocolate chips. Bigger chunks would cause the granola bar bites to fall apart, so make sure you cut the fruit into very tiny pieces!


Snack time! And when you bake them, remember to snap a picture and share it on Instagram using #amyshealthybaking and tagging @amyshealthybaking IN the photo itself! (That guarantees that I’ll see the notification from you! ?) I’d love to see your granola bar bites and feature them in my Sunday Spotlight series!


DIY Perfect Bar Nutrition Facts

I truly love you guys because I made these copycat perfect bars 3 different ways! You can stay updated from my Instagram to see whenever I’m recipe testing (some flops and successes!) I used an unflavored whey protein powder, a vanilla plant based protein powder, and an unflavored plant based protein powder. ALL of them turned out amazing! The unflavored plant based protein powder did make the bars taste a little less sweet, but that can easily be fixed with a tad more honey if needed (I didn’t mind them being less sweet).

Nutrition breakdown for 3 different protein powders I tested:

Unflavored Whey Protein Powder: (¾ Cup= 2.5 scoops) 272 calories, 16 grams protein, 11.6 grams fat, 31.3 grams carbs

Vanilla Plant Based Protein Powder: (¾ Cup= 2.5 scoops) 264 calories, 13.7g protein, 11.3 grams fat, 32.2 grams carbs

Unflavored Plant Based Protein Powder: (¾ cup = 2.5 scoops) 271 calories, 15.4 grams protein, 11.8 grams fat, 31.5 grams carbs

Where to Store Homemade Perfect Bars?

  • Room temperature: You can keep these copycat protein bars at room temperature for up to a week! Store in an airtight container or resealable bag. You can feel confident leaving the house with one of these in hand for the perfect on-the-go healthy snack.
  • Refrigerator: Exactly like the original perfect bar, these diy perfect bars can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 months!
  • Freezer: Store homemade perfect bars in an airtight container or resealable bag in the freezer for up to 4 months! If using whey protein powder, the bars will remain chewy, STRAIGHT OUT OF THE FREEZER! This same thing happens with my Chewy Homemade Granola Bars too! It’s truly magical. If using a plant based protein powder, the bars will still soften once taken out of the freezer. They will initially be a little harder in texture out of the freezer though. Still equally delicious!

I cannot wait for you to give this Perfect Bar Recipe a try! Please snap a picture and share it with me!

Seeing your kitchen creations makes my day and encourages me to keep creating new recipes for you!

Happy Perfect Bar Makin’!

Green Irish Food and Desserts for St. Patricks Day

Saint Patrick’s Day is an amazing holiday to celebrate. It has become a tradition that everything goes green on that specific day. People wear green and themes of the stores and shops go accordingly. Interestingly, food becomes green too it has become a worldwide notion that green food is Irish food. It is not a fact for sure however, the statement is partially right. If you are going to celebrate this day, then we need to introduce you to a list of green desserts. They are all mouthwatering and taste delicious as much as they seem.

Minty Milkshakes

Milkshakes are delicious, but you need to try out the minty ones. It is an invigorating blend of milk, vanilla, ice cream, and mint extract. Additionally, there is always food colouring that makes the drink become green. For a better green-themed drink, add striped straws, white and green.

Green Velvet Cupcake Shamrocks

Shamrocks are usually symbols that signify the big day of Saint Patrick’s Day. People in Ireland use them to create little cupcakes with green velvet to complement the theme of the day. The cupcakes come in trios and get served on a platter after adding the final finishes. The food colouring is what makes those tasty little pieces looking fascinating.

Green Velvet Layer Cake

This is pretty much similar to the cupcake, but it is all about more layers and bigger portions. It is an ordinary piece of cake, so the ingredients should depend on your preferences. However, adding green food colouring will turn the cake into a nice emerald piece of deliciousness. Don’t forget about the topping too. It always tastes better with that buttercream frosting on top for an extra fluffiness.

Shamrock Pretzels

This is the best dessert for those who love the taste of sweet and sour. Those pretzels are green due to the addition of food colouring. They are made in trios, just like the cupcakes, to present the shamrock.

Sugar Wafers

They are easy wafers that you even make on your own. All you need is vanilla sugar wafers and green candy melts. And, it is always a good idea to add sprinkles here and there.

Peek-a-Boo St. Patrick’s Cake

This cake is a sign of creativity and deliciousness all combined in simple layers of cake. Over the cake lies a green frosting to represent the day efficiently. Then, there is a surprise that you find once you cut the cake into slices. A shape of a rainbow shamrock is inside with a delightful appearance of several colours.

Leprechaun Hat S’mores

Leprechauns were famous fairies that you can read about in tales of the Irish mythology. People have always been familiar with the fact that these creatures wear green attire. So, they are perfect for Saint Patrick’s Day. These delicious s’mores takes the shape of the creature’s funny hat. They seem too cute to eat, but they are also too flavoursome to resist.

Mint Chocolate Lasagna

People refer to it with lasagna, for it is all about layers of mint chocolate. The best part about this cake is that you don’t need to bake it. Mix the ingredients and leave it in the fridge for about an hour then they’re ready for you to devour.

Green Donuts

If everything is green on this day, so why can’t the doughnuts join the league? You can come across these doughnuts in almost every bakery shop. Some of them are made of green velvet while others are only of green food colouring. They are as yummy as a doughnut can be.

Mini Grasshopper Pies

Mini pies are cute, and green ones can get even cuter. These pies take over the candy shops all around Ireland in Saint Patrick’s Day. However, you can do them all by yourself if you have the time and inclination for so. They need no baking or oven they are as simple as that.

With plenty of Irish chefs pursuing local produce and ingredients, Irish cuisine is going from strength to strength.


Preparation

Step 1

Preheat oven to 275°. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring often, until butter foams, then browns (do not let burn), 5–8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and whisk in brown sugar, honey, and vanilla. Set aside.

Step 2

Pulse pecans in a food processor until almost a powder (you should have only a few larger pieces remaining). Combine pecans, oats, pumpkin seeds, coconut, orange zest, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl drizzle in reserved butter mixture and toss to combine.

Step 3

Spread out granola on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet and bake, tossing occasionally, until golden brown, 40–50 minutes (mixture will still look wet but will dry as it cools). Let granola cool on baking sheet, then break into clusters. Mix in cranberries.

Step 4

Do Ahead: Granola can be made 1 week ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.

Reviews

Made this today. Yummy! (And I've made a lot if granola!) 2 small adjustments: Added cherries after baked. Baked @ 325° for about 45 minutes. Husband recommends I add crystallized ginger, like I usually do.

My husband couldn't understand why I wanted to make granola. Now HE makes this regularly and we all love it. We use dried blueberries instead of cherries. My teen likes to eat it raw as well and he tipped us off to adding a few good chocolate chips to a bowl when it is still warm out of the oven - yummy! Can't go wrong with this recipe.

I make this regularly, and the coconut oil makes all the difference. However, I add in the dried fruit at the end, after the granola has been baked. Otherwise, it tends to have a burned taste.

I made this recipe in an effort to convince my husband that store bought granola is disgusting. Score! He's a convert. I've made it as is and also substituted in raisins and dried blueberries for the cherries. Absolutely delicious and super easy, I've been making a batch a week for the last month and am still loving it.

Made this recipe exactly as written, except I mixed together the dry ingredients (oats, almonds, flaked coconut, sesame seeds, dried cherries) first in a large bowl -- that step was left out of the recipe. Then mixed together the wet ingredients, cinnamon and salt in a separate smaller bowl and then stirred it all together in the big bowl. Spread the granola out on a baking sheet. Stirred the granola a few times during baking. When the granola was golden brown, after 22 minutes, I took it out to cool. I patted the granola together into a flat "pancake" so that when it cooled, it would have "chunks" in it rather than just loose granola. My granola may have been a bit "toastier" as my professional grade oven runs slightly hotter than a regular one. Next time, I would chop the dried cherries a bit finer than I did this time. The granola is not overly sweet, and sweetness is offered by the bites of dried cherries. I served the granola over plain yogurt with a drizzle of honey. I will definitely make this again. This recipe is simple and definitely a keeper! My husband gave this recipe five forks!


In a blender or food processor, add the macadamia nuts and oat flour in and mix to form a fine flour

In a pan, melt 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 6 tablespoons of maple syrup and 4 tablespoons of almond butter

Add the Ceylon cinnamon and melted mixture into the blender and mix to combine together

In a lined tin or container, slowly add the gooey mixture and press down firmly with your hands to compress together well and put to one side

Meanwhile, in a pan melt 2 tablespoons of almond butter, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and 4 tablespoons of maple syrup

Add the carob powder and mix together until smooth

Pour over the base spreading evenly

Finally, sprinkle over the granola (as much as you desire) and pack down to ensure it is incorporated

Refrigerate for around 2 hours or until set

To remove from the tine lift out the parchment paper and chop into even squares


Tips for making homemade peanut butter granola cereal:

  • You can use either natural peanut butter or traditional no-stir peanut butter in this recipe. I always have good results using natural peanut butter. I recommend buying natural peanut butter because it’s made with just two ingredients – peanuts and salt.
  • Can you use quick oats in this homemade granola? No, you need to use old-fashioned (rolled) oats for the best texture.
  • Can you leave out the honey in this recipe? I wouldn’t recommend it. The honey is needed to help the granola cluster together.
  • What can I use in place of the honey? I would recommend pure maple syrup as a honey substitute. Using pure maple syrup in place of the honey will make this a vegan granola recipe.
  • Line your baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up.
  • How can I make crispy granola? While this granola bakes, it will fill your house with the most delicious peanut butter aroma. It will be hard to resist eating spoonful after spoonful as soon as the pan comes out of the oven, but do try! The flavor is great right away, but if you wait, the granola will crisp up as it cools. It’s so much better when crisp.

This crispy, crunchy peanut butter granola is delicious by the handful, but I usually enjoy it with a splash of milk. And if I’m feeling indulgent, I do this:

Are you a fan of the peanut butter-banana-chocolate combo? Then go ahead, make a batch of this peanut butter granola, add some banana slices and chocolate chips, and dig in. You’re welcome.
