I try to keep our kitchen stocked with healthy snacks for the boys at all times. They may be little, but they have big appetites. One of my favorite snacks to have on hand are energy bites. The boys love them and I love them. Energy bites are easy to make and fun to play around with. I love trying out new flavors. The boys new favorite flavor are these No-Bake Berry Energy Bites.
The boys are berry fanatics. They love berry everything. So when I saw Cheerios’ new Very Berry Cheerios, I knew I had to get them for the boys. They love berries and Cheerios so I knew they would be a hit.
I actually ended up sampling the Cheerios first, don’t tell the boys:) I decided they would be great in energy bites. The Very Berry Cheerios are delicious and have the taste of real berries in every bite including blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. There are #berrieseverywhere! The Cheerios are gluten-free, contain no artificial flavors or colors from artificial sources, and like all Cheerios, have whole grain oats as the first ingredient.
To make the energy bites, I combined oats, Very Berry Cheerios, coconut, ground flaxseed, chia seeds, and salt. Next, I mixed together almond butter, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. I combined the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients and then stirred in dried blueberries to pack another berry punch.
I let the boys help me roll the mixture into balls and they had a blast. Of course, they snacked on some Very Berry Cheerios while we were rolling too. They LOVED the new Cheerios.
I let the boys be my little taste testers. They sampled a Berry Energy Bite and both yelled YUM! Every energy ball is bursting with berry flavor.
These No-Bake Berry Energy Bites are a great snack to have on hand. They only take about 10 minutes to make and will keep in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. They are great to eat on the go or whenever you need a little pick me up!
Look for the new Very Berry Cheerios at the grocery store so you can make these easy No-Bake Berry Energy Bites. They are BERRY delicious! And make sure you share your #berrieseverywhere moment on social!
No-Bake Berry Energy Bites
- 2 cups quick oats
- 1 cup Very Berry Cheerios
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 3/4 cup creamy almond butter
- 1/3 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup dried blueberries
- In a large bowl, combine the oats, Very Berry Cheerios, coconut, ground flaxseed, chia seeds, and salt.
- In a medium bowl, combine the almond butter, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Stir until smooth. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until well combined. Stir in the dried blueberries.
- Roll the mixture into small balls. Store the energy bites in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
- Note-if your almond butter is too thick, you can heat the wet ingredients together in the microwave for about 20 seconds to make them easier to stir. Use gluten-free oats if you need the recipe to be gluten-free.

Perfect for the afternoon munchies!
Yes, a great afternoon snack!
Such a great idea for breakfast on-the-go!
Our boys love these bites and so do I:)
What fun energy snacks!
This is super creative Maria! I bet the kids would love these and thank goodness Cheerios are gluten free now so we can have these!!
Thanks! Yay for gluten-free Cheerios!!
These look yummy! It’s hard to find healthy peanut free protein type snacks for my son, so I just make them. Thanks for giving us another option! Do you think if I toasted the oatmeal they would still turn out ok texture wise? Do you think I’d have to put the oats in the food processor after toasting? Again, thanks for so many healthy and yummy recipes!
Yes, you can toast the oatmeal. You don’t need to put them in the food processor, just follow the recipe. Enjoy!
I have some Strawberry Cheerios that need to be used up. This is the perfect way to do it! Thanks for the great idea!
Strawberry Cheerios are good too! Enjoy!
Oooh can’t wait to try this!!
They are so easy!
Do you think it would be okay to substitute peanut butter for almond butter and dried cranberries for dried blueberries? Thanks!
Hi! I want to make this for my kids. My son though is allergic to all nuts. What would be a good substitute for the almond butter? Thanks!
Can he have sunflower butter? That would work!
Thanks! Il go look for sunflower butter. Thanks!
You are welcome!!
My kids love cereal once a week as breakfast, or sometimes as their after dinner snack 😉 We just picked up a box at Meijer since they fit our allergens and are excited to try them. I think we’ll definitely try this recipe as well!
Made these with some leftover pumpkin spice cheerios we had and some dates…yuuuuuuum!!!! Thanks for the recipe! The boys love them too!
Yay! We love the Pumpkin Cheerios too! We will have to try those next.
Can this recipe still be made without the chia seeds and the ground flax seed?
