If there’s one thing I’ve learned about myself during my health journey, is that I absolutely must have snacks available to me throughout the day. This either consists of fruits, trail mix, or no-bake energy bites! These tasty chia seed energy bites are my favorite addition to my weekly meal prep routine.  They are so simple to make and I’m excited to finally share them with you all.

They’re nutrient-dense, calorie-dense to keep you fueled throughout the day and help curb hunger; filled with fiber, plant-based proteins, minerals, antioxidants, and healthy fats. You have to give them a try! They are great as a mid-day snack, post-workout, dessert, you name it.

I like to make a BIG batch and eat them throughout the week. It’s been a game changer for me as it helps to keep me energized and gives me something tasty to look forward to.

These chia seed energy bites are sweet but not too sweet and have a nice chewy texture. I like to make them with almonds and cashews as I think the combination goes great together, but you can easily swap the nuts for any other variety. You can even add in some chocolate or maybe lemon zest. Yum!

I recommend making a couple of batches of this recipe and storing half in the fridge to use throughout the week and the other half in the freezer for later to thaw out when you’re in need of an emergency snack. This has saved me many times and is great if you’re at the beginning stages of your health journey and still might be struggling with late-night cravings. It’s no fun recovering from a late-night junk food binge.

Health Benefits

Chia seeds are a good source of vitamins such as vitamin C, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and vitamin E. Chia seeds have no cholesterol and are good sources of antioxidants. They contain very high concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids, which have many benefits in terms of healthy aging. The carbohydrates present in chia seeds are released slowly and are therefore ideal for diabetics. Chia seeds have a high amount of dietary fiber and protein. Some of the health benefits include controlling diabetes, lowering cholesterol levels, improving the digestive system, boosting heart health, and controlling hypertension, and they even contain anti-inflammatory properties.
