Loaded Oatmeal Cookie Energy Bites

Loaded oatmeal cookie energy bites are a quick and healthy portable snack option that satisfies every craving! Just as the name suggests, they’re “loaded” with ingredients that are both delicious and nutrient-dense.




  1. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Pulse half of the oats in a food processor or blender to make oat flour. This will help the mixture stick together.
  3. Mix all dry ingredients (oats through cinnamon) in a large bowl and set aside.
  4. Add peanut butter, honey and vanilla to a small bowl and stir until fully combined.
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry and use the back of a spoon to fully incorporate. 
  6. Use a 1.5 Tbsp scoop to portion mixture in 16 balls, and roll between your hands. Place on lined sheet pan. Eat right away or refrigerate for 30 minutes before transferring to a food storage container.
