Energy Bites for Busy Mums

It’s only too easy to grab a snack that you might regret later.

It’s 3pm and you are starting to feel that energy slump. The kids need to get to training, band practice and there’s homework, and dinner to prepare. Mum life is an endurance sport!

These energy snacks are the perfect and nourishing snack for busy mamma’s that are always on go.

One bite into these delicious morsels and you know you’re onto a good thing. They taste both wholesome and ‘treat’ like. And, they incorporate the perfect combination of ingredients to satisfy any craving.

I also recommend these energy bites for postpartum mums looking for a quick one handed snack.  

Flaxseed (also known as linseed) is packed with omega-3 fatty acids and fibre, your body will thank you for it!

Although dates are high in sugar, they are a nutritional power house so don’t mistake them for empty calories! They are high in antioxidants, high in fibre and high in potassium.

Oats can keep you feeling fuller for longer and are also high in fibre and rich in antioxidants. Oats can also be useful in lowering cholesterol.

10 minutes of work and you are on your way to better health.

Only 6 ingredients

  • 1 cup dried dates
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup the best peanut butter you can get (I use  Mayvers)
  • 3 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 2 tablespoons cacao


Place dates and water in a small saucepan on low heat. Simmer until dates are soft and water is almost fully absorbed (a few minutes,) squish dates until they are all broken down. Let cool a few minutes. Add rest of ingredients and roll.
