Now this is my kind of baking! (i.e. Not really baking!) Still trying to get my full energy levels back after dealing with the plague, so I was on the hunt for a quick and easy recipe to make this weekend.
Behold, Nutella Energy Bites! And hello, who doesn’t love Nutella?
I did make a few revisions to the ingredients, just so I could use up some things I had on hand. I subbed the hazelnuts with peanuts, the ground flax seeds for ground almonds, and the chia seeds for flax seeds.
A cinch to make, perfect for a a breakfast pick me up or a daytime snack!

Nutella Energy Bites
These delicious no bake energy bites get an extra chocolate and hazelnut kick with some Nutella!
Prep Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 15 mins
- 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 2/3 cup Nutella
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup roasted hazelnuts
- 2 Tbsp. ground flax seeds
- 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp. salt
Combine all ingredients together in a food processor and pulse until combined. Cover mixture and transfer to the refrigerator, and let cool for about 30-60 minutes. (This will slightly harden the mixture and make it easier to form into balls.)
When mixture is cool, remove and roll into balls of your desired size. (Mine were about 1-inch in diameter.) Enjoy immediately, or refrigerate in a covered container.
