Energy Bites


50g hazelnuts, chopped

50g sunflower seeds, chopped

50g dried apricots, chopped

50g raisins

50g oats

50g granary brown flour

½ tsp baking powder

2 tbsp vegetable oil

4 tbsp apple juice


These are little bombs of energy that are the healthier alternative to sugar laden shop bought breakfast snacks.

Ideally a breakfast snack needs to be balanced and filling, low in sugar, high in fibre and slow release carbohydrates. By the very nature of snacking, it needs to be easily portable and long lasting.

Mix all the ingredients together and form into small balls. Bake at 180˚C for 15-18 minutes until golden brown

My Energy Bites tick all the boxes. I make a batch once a week as this recipe makes between 20 and 30 depending in the size, they keep for a week in an airtight container and don’t crumble all over your lap in the car!
