Maple Pecan Peanut Butter Energy Bites

Welcome to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama + Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl to create awesome healthy recipes each week! This week’s theme is Free For All!

It’s been a while since I’ve made any sort of energy bites, so I figured now would be a good time to change that up! :] (Be sure to check out some of my past energy bite/ball recipes–my cake batter one was a definite crowd favorite!)

I’m teaming up with Barleans + LunchBots for this post to encourage healthy snacking + packing your own lunches! (As a Barleans blogger, I received free products + compensation in exchange for recipe development. As always, all thoughts are mine and mine alone!)

Make sure you enter the giveaway at the end of this post for a chance to win your own Lunchbot container + a pack of Barleans’ Energy Blend!

LunchBots has a variety of options for your meal prep needs, including bento containers (like the one I got!), leak-proof containers, insulated containers, and lunch bags! The containers are made of food-grade 18/8 stainless steal with no linings, toxins, BPA or phthalates. :] (It fits perfectly into my Isolator meal prep bag too!)

Thanks to the joy that is higher education and student loans, I’m in more than a quarter of a million dollars of student debt, so I try to save money wherever and whenever possible.

One of the easiest ways to do that is to pack your own lunch! (This also tends to be healthier, since you can control what it is you’re putting together for a meal/snack!)

The Barleans’ Energy Blend contains ground flaxseed, unsweetened shredded coconut, chia seeds, and panax ginseng–as you’re probably aware by now, I very rarely drink coffee, but I do have lots of ginseng and tea in my apartment that I consume in usually-sparing amounts. Ginseng works super well for keeping me alive/awake through long shifts!

    My favorite healthy snack is an apple with peanut butter, or if I’m good about meal prep a bite like this one! I love peanut butter snacks!

    1. Farrah

      Ah, apples are one of my favorite fruits, and they’re so darn good with peanut butter! :]!

    This recipe looks good! I need to be more diligent in my breakfast and lunch routine! These energy balls would be awesome!

    1. Farrah

      I really need to be too! I fell into a rut for a while, but trying to get back on the train! 😛

  13. The Accidental Marathoner

    Those look so yummy and super easy to make! I work 12 hour shifts and always try to bring some sort of health snacks in case I get the munchies. My work drawer is full of nuts and Kind bars, and I always pack fresh fruit and protein shakes for the day.

    1. Farrah

      I feel ya! I’m working a 24-hr call right now and forgot that the cafeteria closes at 6:30 pm. (So sad. :'( ) Good thing I happened to bring some of these with me! 😀 I need to start packing protein shakes with me again!

    I’m always looking for energy bite recipes that don’t have dates! Not that I dislike dates, but they often make everything taste like date 😛
    Hannah recently posted…Books I read: September 2017My Profile

    1. Farrah

      haha, I’m with you there! I can’t ever get dates to blend with everything else in an even consistency so I don’t end up using em’ as much! (I probably really just need an actual food processor. >_> )

    What a cute little lunch box/snack box! I love raw bites and energy bites like these because they’re so easy to make and so easy to pack to take with you.

    For me it is hummus. My littlest eats it by the spoonful (healthy fat right!). But I also like to make homemade lara bars. My oldest and husbands favorite is when I make carrot cake ones.

    1. Farrah

      Homemade Lara bars sound awesome–I love the carrot cake flavor!! 😀 I’ve also been meaning to try making my own hummus but haven’t quite gotten around to it yet. x_x
