No Bake Bites

No Bake Bites

You’ll love these Allergy-free & Vegan No-Bake Bites and so will your kids! Easy to make and take with you for a quick snack to give you energy

I spend more time in my car these past 2 years, then I ever had. Between 2:15 and 8:30 pm, I am working like a taxi driver without pay. I’m pretty sure you Moms out there know exactly what I mean. Picking kids up, dropping them off at home, church, tumbling or karate, then pick everyone back up and head home.  Crazy busy, right?

There are times when I get a little overwhelmed about it all, to which my wise and sometimes too blunt husband kindly reminds me that these are all “Third World Problems”. Our kids are healthy enough to do sports and we can pay for them, I’m driving in a nice vehicle with a/c or heat, and I have the margin to do it…..really not much to complain about, right? It does keep me extra busy, and sometimes dinner isn’t made until I get home late (sometimes I just don’t plan well) so instead of complaining and being really hungry, I just have to be thankful and prepared for those long days.

What saves us most days is my trusty snack bag.  It doesn’t matter what type you use, just as long as there is actually food in them!   There have been days when I reach over to grab my bag then realize….its empty.  Big fail on my part, especially since 2+hours of after school athletic activities can be difficult if you haven’t eaten since 11am. So I have to make sure my bag is packed with good food for them.


No Bake Bites

Typically there are a few packaged standards in there. Roasted chickpeas, nori strips, fruit squeeze, fresh fruit/veggies and no-nut butter to-go. I win extra bonus points when I had the time to make the Go-Go Bars from my previous post or these No-Bake Bites. Its one of our favorite take-along snacks because its so easy to make, its allergy-safe, and its filled with good ingredients like, SunButter, Gluten Free Rolled Oats, Chia Seeds, Ground Flax, Unsweetened Natural Coconut shreds, and liquid sweetener like Agave, so it is refined sugar free. The only “non-healthy” thing in it would be the chocolate chips but you could use cacao nibs instead and it tastes just as yummy. Either way, its safe for those with multiple food allergies which makes a great treat for my kiddos!

Next time, add these No Bake Bites to your snack bag. Feel free to play with it too and make it yours just like these No Bake Oatmeal Cookie from Texanerin. Although similar ingredients, the differences make them unique but another perfect on-the-go snack.

No Bake Bites

Prep

Total

Yield 30

Only Gluten-free and Allergy-free ingredients in these easy to make, kid-approved, No Bake Bites. Perfect snacks to have packed for school lunches or car rides.

Ingredients

  • 1 C. Gluten-free Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 C. Nut-free butter (i.e. Sunbutter)
  • 1/3 C. Liquid Sweetener (Agave, Raw Honey, Brown Rice Syrup, Pure Maple Syrup)*
  • 1 C. Unsweetened Coconut shreds or flakes
  • 1/2 C. Ground flaxseed (Flax meal)
  • 1 TB. Chia seed
  • 1 tsp. Pure Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 C. Dairy-free Chocolate Chips (Enjoy Life brand or use Cocoa nibs)

Instructions

  1. Mix everything together in a large mixing bowl until incorporated.
  2. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Once cool, roll into balls and enjoy. (I like to use a mini-ice cream scoop )
  4. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate or freeze.

Notes

*If you drizzle a little coconut oil in the measuring cup before using your liquid sweetener, it will pour out much easier.

Courses Snack

Cuisine Free of Top 8 Allergens

Notes:

Don’t like chocolate, replace with dried fruit or super fruit like goji or mulberries. Want to change the seed options?  Go ahead and use something like hemp or sunflower.  That would be delish. You can’t really mess it up…just fill it with healthy ingredients to keep you all going through the day.  And when you’re sitting in the car, driving from place to place, know that you’re not alone and take a moment to remember to enjoy the crazy season and be thankful.

But wait, there's more

    I LOVE No Bake Bites! They are easy to make, and don’t take a lot of time and they really do help with energy. A great snack to make if you’re wanting something sweet but not wanting to eat a entire case of Oreos! I love that they are also easy to take with you on the go, I love them and will be making them again. 🙂
