I’m keeping things extra short and sweet for you today. Pat and I are currently in Seattle visiting two couples – both of which ABANDONED us (<— super dramatic, I know) in Chicago for the west coast.

We are looking forward to an extra long weekend filled with friends, exploring, some hiking, definitely eating, probably drinking, and whatever else they have in store for us!

Before we left town, I made sure our bags were full of snacks for the flight and for our time exploring! So you know I brought these no bake energy bites with me.

These beauties are so simple – just dates, oats, peanuts, chia seeds, cinnamon, and a little honey. My feelings towards chia seeds fluctuate pretty drastically, but we are currently in the ‘I’m into you” phase, which is why you’ll see them here.

I hope you love them as much as I do! Have a wonderful weekend and make you follow along on my Instagram to see all my adventures in Seattle!

10 Minute No Bake Energy Bites
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 15 bites
  • ½ cup peanuts, roasted and unsalted
  • 1 cup dates*
  • 1 cup gluten free oats
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  1. Add the peanuts to the basin of your food processor and pulse a few times to break them down.
  2. Add in the dates and pulse again.
  3. Next, add in the oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, and honey. Process until a dough begins to form.
  4. With slightly damp hands, roll the dough into balls roughly 1 inch in diameter.
  5. Store in an airtight container. They will last for at least a week on your counter and longer in the fridge (if you haven't eaten them all by then!).
*Make sure your dates are very moist. If they are on the dry side, soak them in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain the water and use the dates as described.

Don’t forget to PIN this for later!

      Thanks Jess – we just got home and were welcomed with snow… 🙁 these things saved me on the flight with no GF options available!

    It’s so funny because I’ve been at the Seattle airport a lot, but I’ve never actually explored the city. I’m looking forward to seeing all the adventures you go on; these are the most adorable little bites.

    <3 And I guess it was a good thing they abandoned you for the West Coast, so you could have an excuse to visit Seattle, right?

      Exactly! And because of YOU, I tried my first Perfect Bar while I was out there… the almond butter flavor was so good!

      Thanks Linda! I plugged all of the ingredients into My Fitness Pals nutritional information calculator and each bite came up with the following: 91 calories, 3 grams fat, 2 grams protein, and 10 grams sugar. Please let me know if you need any more information!
