3 tablespoons grass fed butter, melted

3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

2 scoops protein powder (I use vanilla flavor)

1/2 cup ground flax seed

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2/3 cup almond butter

1/3 cup toasted coconut flakes, chopped

2/3 cup roasted, salted almonds, chopped

1 cup oatmeal, certified gluten-free

dark chocolate chips, chunks or shavings (optional)

3 teaspoons natural granular sweetener (optional)


  1. Melt butter and coconut oil in a glass bowl, in the microwave. Add all remaining ingredients. Mix well by hand.
  2. Form each ball with a 1-inch diameter cookie scoop. Place on a small plate or pan that you can fit in the freezer to set up. Use waxed or parchment between layers.
  3. Freeze for an hour and when firm, move to a Ziploc freezer bag or a freezer-safe container to store. Enjoy!


Storage Energy bites keep well in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months.

Nut allergies You can substitute sunflower seed butter for the almond butter.
