I have been really low on energy lately. I think part of it is just winter. I feel winter pretty hard, the lack of sunshine and outdoor activity really affects my energy level! I’ve also been eating pretty badly (not so great on the new years resolutions), and when I do that, my energy suffers as well. For me, eating healthy things like these no bake energy balls during the week is all about prep.

If I have time to prep on Sunday, I have a fighting chance! If not, you can bet I’ll struggle to eat healthy for most meals. One of my favorite things to prep are these Chocolate Chip Energy Balls!

They are packed of protein and nutrition. I eat them for breakfast (in the car, of course) and for a quick energy burst during the day! 

This recipe is actually a modified version of another recipe I’ve shared, these Peanut Butter Honey Energy Balls. I’ve made these delicious healthy bites no less than a hundred times at this point, and I started making small modifications. I omitted the dried apricots and swapped them for mini chocolate chips.

I packed them with extra protein powder, chia seeds and flax seeds.

And, I learned over time that I really prefer to quickly run the ingredients through a food processor to make the energy balls a bit smoother in texture!

There are a ton of modifications you can make to these delicious energy bites! Add dried fruit, omit (or swap) the seeds, or substitute your favorite nut butter for the peanut butter. The sky is the limit!

I love this recipe for a healthy snack! These No Bake Energy Bites are packed with peanut butter, oats, chocolate chips, flax and chia seeds. 


  • 1¼ cup oats
  • ½ cup sliced almonds, chopped finely (or use food processor to chop for you)
  • 3 tablespoons flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon protein powder (optional, I use PB2, you could also use vanilla powder)
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • ½ cup peanut butter or other nut butter


  1. In medium mixing bowl or food processor, add oats, almonds, flax and chia seeds. Mix/blend well to get these ingredients evenly distributed.
  2. Add honey, chocolate chips, and peanut butter. Stir until well combined. I like to use a spatula for this.
  3. Place mixing bowl in refrigerator for minimum of 30 minutes.
  4. Roll chilled mixture into bite-sized balls. Store in refrigerator for up to a week.
