Cookies and Cream Energy Bites

Cookies and Cream Energy Bites are our latest obsession! America’s favorite cookie (Oreos®) in a more nutritious way? Heck yes! We make faux (more nutritious) “Oreo” cookie crumbs and mix them into an energy ball for a healthful snack that everyone will go crazy for!

This Cookies and Cream Energy Bites recipe is a BONUS recipe as part of our Back-To-School Lifesavers — a series of recipes that are intended to have little (or no) veggie chopping, minimal prep time, around 10 ingredients or less (not including pantry staples), and use kid-friendly ingredients. This (obviously) isn’t a dinner recipe, but a fun back-to-school snack or addition to a balanced breakfast.

For gluten-free Cookies and Cream Energy Balls: While the ingredients in these balls are naturally gluten-free, make sure to check all the ingredient labels to verify they weren’t processed in a facility with gluten.
