Ever since I made these Lemon Pie Energy Bites, my kids have been begging for me to make more. They call these “ball candies” and always ask if they can have them for dessert. I say yes, of course, and they think I’m the best mom ever! No one needs to tell them these are healthy!
I am really on an energy bite kick these days. And for good reason!
*They are super duper easy to make.
*They are no bake.
*The kids (yes, even my 3 year olds) can help make them.
*They are good for you!
*They are so yummy and my kids think they’re eating dessert.
These really are a fabulous quick and easy snack or breakfast – or if you’re like my kids, dessert! They make a great on-the-go snack as well.
What are you snacking on these days? If you haven’t tried energy bites yet, now is the time 🙂
Would it work with almonds instead of peanuts, too? Sounds so delicious!
Stephanie Brubaker says
Yes! Hope you enjoy these!
Love the simplicity of this snack. We’re all about snacking on popcorn lately.
Colleen (Souffle Bombay) says
Don’t you just love it when the kiddos get excited by something you make and ask for more 🙂 Just think down the road of life they will look back and remember the bites of their childhood!
Look so good – and the fact that they give you an energy boost is just the bonus!
Nutmeg Nanny says
Love these little energy bites. They look so perfect for snacking.
Simple to make and good for you. A winning combination. These would be perfect in school lunches!

I’m still, dragging from the time change. I could use a little extra help in the energy department!

I think I am the only one who has never made an energy bite! But they look so good I am dying to try them!
Marjory @ Dinner-Mom says
Yummy! I love this one almost as much as the lemon one. I love that I can offer this mostly healthy treat for dessert..and everyone is happy!
Cookin Canuck says
We love energy bites here…they’re so great for after school or post-workout snacks. This version has “must make these” written all over it.
Jessica @ Sprinkle Some Sugar says
Yum! I’m totally going to make these! I’m always looking for different healthier snacks. It definitely is a win when you make a healthy snack for the kids and they think it’s dessert! 😉
Lana | Never Enough Thyme says
I love a healthy, no-cook treat like these energy bites! And the bite-size pieces help with portion control as well.
Lora @cakeduchess says
The lemon version was my style, but this chocolate and peanut version would make my kiddos very happy!! Great idea, Stephanie!
Yum, I could use an energy bite or seven right now!
Renee - Kudos Kitchen says
Yes, please. I love everything about these. From the no-bake aspect, to your list of ingredients. I’ve pinned them and will be making them as soon as possible! Thanks for the recipe!

I love energy bites! These look great. Chocolate and pb forever 🙂
Annie @Maebells says
These are calling my name! I love little bite sized treats!
Brenda@Sugar-Free Mom says
When chocolate is in the name and the treat is brown, they think it’s dessert so cheers on a healthy treat for the kids!

I love energy bites for many reasons– how they are no bake, how easy they are. But most importantly, how great they taste! These look amazing!
