Cherry Chocolate Energy Bites (Vegan)

Cherry Chocolate Energy Bites. They are so good!  I know I have a lot of energy bites to choose from on my blog.   I am a big fan of no bake cookies and healthy energy bites.

I picked up some dried cherries the other day and that is how I had the inspiration to make these cherry energy bites.

These healthy energy bites would make a great pre or post workout snack.  In fact I just had a couple of them after my yoga class.

These cherry chocolate energy bites are vegan and gluten free.  If you wanted to make them grain free, you might be able to use sunflower seeds in place of the oats.

This no bake recipe is super easy to make!  It’s a great recipe to do with your young kids.

Prep Time 5 min Serves 16 bite sized balls     adjust servings

A healthy no bake recipe your kids will love!



  1. In a food processor , combine the oats, sea salt, almond butter and maple syrup. Grind for a minute.
  2. Then add the dried cherries and chocolate chips and continue to pulse a few more times.
  3. Roll into balls. The mixture will seem loose, but I promise it firms up in the fridge.
  4. Place the balls on a parchment lined plate or baking sheet .
  5. When all the balls are rolled, place them in the fridge to firm up. It shouldn't take long. Maybe 15 minutes or so.
  6. Keep these bites stored in the fridge. They should last at least 7-10 days. You can also freeze them for longer storage!


Recipe Notes

If you don't want to use cherries, you can use another dried fruit of your choice. If you have a nut allergy, feel free to use sunflower butter. It think that should work well too. Enjoy!
