The basics of no bake energy bites

There are so many recipes for no bake energy bites floating around (I love this energy bite recipe) and I’ve drawn from quite a few of them for inspiration. I wanted a basic recipe that I could use as a jumping off point for adding in lots of different ingredients and flavors.

The base is made with just 3 ingredients – 1 cup of oatmeal, 1/2 cup nut butter, and 1/3 cup honey (and of course, there are lots of variations for these ingredients too!).

To the base ingredients, you’ll add 1 1/4 cups of additional ingredients. For the recipe pictured I added ground flax seed and unflavored protein powder. Then you’ll add a 1/2 cup of extra add-ins and some flavoring (I chose butterscotch chips for my add-in and a teaspoon of vanilla for some flavor).
