Butterscotch Energy Bites are the perfect healthy treat to keep you energized all day long! These no-bake energy bites will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week and are perfect for grab-and-go breakfasts.
I have to admit that I almost NEVER eat breakfast. They say that it’s the most important meal of the day, but it’s never really appealed to me. I’m not a big fan of eggs, which seem to be the basis for most breakfast dishes. And I’m not really a bacon aficionado either (GASP!).
These energy bites are a bit like no-bake cookies. Oats, cinnamon, and coconut are combined with flax seed and almond butter for a healthy dose of protein. And, of course, don’t forget those butterscotch chips! Cookies for breakfast? I’m on board for that. In fact, I’ve even created a couple breakfast cookie recipes:

- Quinoa Breakfast Cookies with Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt
- Blueberry Breakfast Cookies with White Chocolate
This recipe makes a large batch of energy bites, so you’ll have plenty on hand for grab and go breakfasts and snacks throughout the week. Plus, they will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week.
No Bake Energy Bites Ingredients:
- Coconut flakes
- Almond butter
- Flax seed
- Vanilla extract
- Butterscotch chips
Feel free to play around with this standard recipe too. You can swap out the butterscotch chips for chocolate chips, or even dried blueberries, dried strawberries or dried cranberries.
It helps to mix the ingredients together then place the mixture in the fridge for an hour before rolling into balls. This makes them easier to form and hold together better.
