Can You Freeze Energy Bites?

Yes! If you’re looking for a breakfast or snack that can be made ahead and will last for months, consider freezing your no-bake energy bites.

To freeze the balls, first place them on a baking sheet and flash-freeze them for at least two hours. Once frozen, transfer them to a zip-top bag or a freezer-safe container and store them in the freezer for up to six months. When you want to use them, thaw them at room temperature for around 30 minutes or in the fridge overnight.

These energy bites are a healthy alternative to traditional no-bake cookies. They are delicious and nutritious, and I always get asked for the recipe whenever I make them. Both kids and adults love them, and they disappear quickly! Although I prefer to store them in the freezer since they taste best when frozen, it's not a must.

When rolling the mixture into balls, slightly dampen your hands with water to prevent the mixture from sticking. This will make it much easier to shape the balls and will result in a smoother, more uniform texture. Additionally, if you find that the mixture is too dry and crumbly, simply add a splash of honey or peanut butter to help bind everything together. And don't forget to store your energy bites in the fridge or freezer to keep them fresh and firm. Not only does this help prolong their shelf life, but it also gives them a deliciously chewy texture that's perfect for snacking. Enjoy!
