I’m forever on a mission to have more out-of-the-box snacks around the house, which is difficult with two growing boys that are like bottomless pits and a husband that’s pretty much the same way.

Let’s face it — I can throw down food like the best of ’em too, so I need super easy recipes that I can whip up in no time flat!

These Blueberry Almond Energy Bites are SO easy, and it’s a good thing, because they’re also so addicting.  They may last a couple of days at my house if I stand guard by the refrigerator because they’re that good. ๐Ÿ™‚

I may not really stand guard at the refrigerator, but I am guilty of hiding my own private stash in the back of the fridge because nobody looks there for anything.  I’m a firm believer that if I make the food, I should have my very own stash.

Instead of using my old stand-by peanut butter, I decided to use almond butter because I always have that in the house too and it’s good to change things up!  

Plus almond butter and blueberries are amazing together. ๐Ÿ™‚

How to make this recipe

These bites take only 6 ingredients and about 5-10 minutes to put together!

I store these in the refrigerator because they hold together perfectly when they’re cold.

Recipe notes

  • Substitute honey for the maple the syrup or use any dried fruit that you have on hand. ย 
  • The chia seeds are totally optional, but I like the nutrition boost and crunchy texture that they provide. ย If you buy chia seeds and you wonder what else you would do with them, check out my overnight oats and chia seed pudding.
