This recipe is one of my go-tos. It’s super easy and only requires a few ingredients! The first few times I made it, I followed the original recipe from Naturally Ella, making homemade teriyaki sauce. But then there was this magical moment when teriyaki sauce was on sale at Kroger and this recipe got that much easier.

3 Delicious No Bake Protein Balls Recipes

By October 10, 2016 Gluten-Free Recipes
energy bites recipe | g-free laura

I got into making no bake protein balls a little over a year and a half ago when I got my first Ninja food processor. Throughout that time, I’ve tried a variety of recipes (many found on Pinterest), and have adapted them in several ways. Below are three of my favorite no bake protein balls recipes, making this your “one stop shop” for gluten-free energy bites!

Gluten-Free Fig Almond Energy Bites

I only started getting down with this recipe a few months ago, but it’s quickly become one of my favorites! The version I’ve posted previously is adapted from Well Plated. I swapped out the almond butter for actual almonds. Check out both versions and see which one you prefer! 

Ingredients: 

  • 15 dried mission figs
  • 7 pitted medjool dates
  • 1/2 Cup almonds
  • 3/4 Cup gluten-free oats
  • 1/4 Cup ground flaxseed meal 
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 drops liquid stevia

Gluten-Free Cranberry & Oat Energy Bites

While I adore all of the recipes I make, I think this one is my favorite—mainly because it reminds me of an oatmeal cookie. I also like the fact that I can add in different types of dried fruit in it as well. Originally I used dried cherries, but in the picture below I use dried cranberries. 

Also, in the original recipe, I use three types of nuts (cashews, pecans and almonds). If you don’t have all three nuts, just use a variety that equates to the total of 1 1/4 Cup! I rarely follow the recipe 100-percent!

Ingredients: 

  • 3/4 Cup gluten-free Oats (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1 Tbsp. flax seeds
  • 1/2 Cup almonds
  • 1/2 Cup pecans
  • 1/4 Cup walnuts
  • 6 medjool dates, pits removed
  • 2 Tbsp. raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 drops, liquid stevia (don’t have liquid stevia? Add another 1/2 tsp. vanilla)
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 Cup dried cherries

Chocolate Sea Salt Energy Bites

I’ve made this recipe so many times I know all of the ingredients and amounts by heart (and that’s saying a lot for me because I don’t remember those types of things!). 

Ingredients: 

  • 8-10 pitted medjool dates
  • 1/2 Cup almonds
  • 1/2 Cup pecans
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp. raw honey
  • 2 Tbsp. cacao powder
  • Cacao nibs
  • 2 Tbsp. Spectrum Decadent Blend (optional; just adds more superfood — If using this ingredient, use only 1 Tbsp. of Cacao powder)
  • 1/4 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 3-4 drops liquid stevia (optional; if you don’t have any, add extra vanilla extract)
  • Sea salt to taste
