Honey Hemp Seed Energy Bites


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup almond butter (or any nut butter of your choice)
  • 1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup for a vegan option)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional: 1/4 cup chopped nuts, dried fruits, or dark chocolate chips for added texture and flavor


  1. Prepare the Ingredients: In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, hemp seeds, and any optional add-ins such as chopped nuts, dried fruits, or dark chocolate chips. Mix well to distribute the ingredients evenly.
  2. Warm the Almond Butter and Honey: In a small saucepan over low heat, gently warm the almond butter and honey (or maple syrup) until they become easier to mix, stirring occasionally. This step helps to soften the almond butter and make it easier to incorporate into the mixture.
  3. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Once the almond butter and honey are warmed, remove them from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Pour the mixture over the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl.
  4. Mix Thoroughly: Using a spatula or wooden spoon, thoroughly mix the wet and dry ingredients until everything is well combined and forms a sticky dough. If the mixture seems too dry, you can add a little more honey or almond butter to help bind everything together.
  5. Shape into Balls: Using clean hands, take small portions of the mixture and roll them between your palms to form bite-sized balls. If the mixture is too sticky, you can lightly coat your hands with a bit of coconut oil or water to prevent sticking.
  6. Chill: Place the energy bites on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and then transfer them to the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes. Chilling helps the bites firm up and holds their shape better.
  7. Serve and Enjoy: Once chilled, the energy bites are ready to be enjoyed! Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
