Kid Friendly Nut Butter Energy Bites

This recipe has become a staple in my home over the last few years. They are perfect snack to have around, especially when 3pm (or the hungry hour) hits. We make these once a week and they are so tasty and healthy. Every kid I have ever given one to has loved them, so what more do we need to say?

I have lately upgraded some of the ingredients to make these even more jam-packed with super nutritious ingredients. You can easily substitute your favourite ingredients with an almost guaranteed success. The only thing I ever added that did NOT taste good was protein powder, so do what you will with that information.


  • 3/4 cup nut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed powder
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp cacoa nibs
  • 2 tbsp superfood powder of your choice: maca/mesquite /barley grass juice/moringa
  • 4 tbsp mini chocolate chips
  • Coconut for dusting


  1. Mix nut butter, honey, cocoa powder, and vanilla in a medium bowl.
  2. Stir in dry ingredients and mix well.
  3. Roll into 1 inch balls and then roll onto a plate of shredded coconut (makes 16-20).
  4. Store in the fridge and enjoy 🙂

If I had to pick one thing, one idea, that could change the world, it would be family. If we could figure out on a very small scale how to consistently be good to each other and for each other, and then bring that love outward into the world, great things could happen.
