Gimme Some Oven Blog: Nutella Energy Bites

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.

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

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

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.
