What are energy bites?
Energy bites are a popular snack that combines usually-healthy ingredients into a portable bite, ball or mini muffin shape. These energy bites are usually fairly dense and easy to carry in a purse or backpack for easy snacking.
Today’s energy bites are an oatmeal raisin twist on the classic energy bite. Think: oatmeal raisin cookies in energy bite form.
How to make oatmeal raisin energy bites
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir and fold until well mixed.
Chill for about 10-15 minutes, until nice and firm.
Now, grab a cookie scoop. Scoop and drop balls of energy bite dough onto the prepared sheet. Pick up each bite and roll in your hands to create a smooth sphere. Or, skip this step if you like the scooped look. You can also roll a few extra raisins onto the exterior of each energy bite.
How to store oatmeal raisin energy bites
- If you like moister bites, these oatmeal raisin bites are best if enjoyed the first day; Day 2 and on, the bites will become much drier. Day 2 and forward, to soften, heat in 10-second increments in the microwave until warm.
- If you don’t mind energy bites on the drier side, store for 1-2 weeks in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
