Nutty Oatmeal Cranberry Energy Bites

Nutty Oatmeal Cranberry Energy Bites - tasty and healthy little bites, perfect for breakfast or an energy boosting snack! | tastythin.com

These Nutty Oatmeal Cranberry Energy Bites are a great alternative to store bought granola bars and offer a nice punch of protein-packed energy!  They are sweet, nutty, healthy, and delicious all rolled into a cute little bite-sized treat.

This recipe takes literally no time to prepare and is also gluten free (just be sure to use GF oats.)  I love the addition of crunchy peanut butter and ground walnuts, which packs even more nutty flavor into these tasty snacks.  Honey and dried cranberries bring the sweetness and a touch of cinnamon is that extra flavor element that will remind you of a warm oatmeal cookie.  Yum.

 Customize to your taste by swapping other dried fruits for the cranberries or pecans for the walnuts.  The possibilities are endless!  I’m thinking these would be the perfect portable skinny snack or grab-and-go breakfast for your summer road trip or hike.
