Do you have any idea on the calories or nutritional value of these? Sound delicious!!


I entered the ingredients into MyFitness pal app and if I did it right here are the results per energy bite:
110 calories
5 grams fat
12.5 grams carbs
2.5 grams protein

How about dietary fiber?

Per one bite

Any ideas to replace the peanut butter, I love the idea but my son school doesn’t allow it in the lunch box5 stars

A good substitute is almond butter if they allow almond based things. If no nuts are allowed, then soy butter or coconut butter.

Good to know as my grandson is allergic to peanut butter

Sun butter would be a great substitute

Just found you thanks to a cousin filling me in to this sight. Looks like it is loaded with many adventures. Thank you.

They sound good

Can you use regular oats or do you have to use the quick ones?5 stars
