These no-bake fruit and seed oatmeal bites are perfect for a super easy breakfast or snack. These little breakfast bites are packed with protein and nutrients and really filling! This is definitely not the best healthy breakfast option on the block, but if you need an on-the-go option for a busy day or before a trip, these are perfect!
I’ve been making these before my recent trips where I have to leave early in the morning. I’ll pack some in a bag and bring along an apple and some cucumber slices. I can prepare it the night before and then just grab and go as I run out the door. So easy and filling.
These breakfast bites can be made in just about 5 minutes, so you don’t need much time at all to prepare them. I really love these because they are a great alternative to pre-made breakfast bars, especially since they are so easy to make yourself! They are healthier, you know exactly what the ingredients are, and they are cheaper than any store-bought equivalent.
Make sure to store these breakfast bites in the refrigeration. They should be good for about 5 days. They also freeze really well, so you can make a big batch, then thaw a few whenever you want! Just remove from the freezer and thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
A few last notes: If you are looking for a lower carb option, try replacing the maple syrup with monk fruit syrup. And for the dried berries you can use whatever kind you like! I usually use mix of mulberries, goji berries, and fruit juice-sweetened cranberries. Yum!
- 1 cup (100g) quick oats
- 1 cup (112g) dried berries (cranberries, goji berries, mulberries)
- ½ cup (75g) pumpkin seeds
- ½ cup (75g) sunflower seeds
- ½ cup (48g) grated unsweetened coconut
- ¼ cup (25g) almond flour
- ½ cup nut butter of choice (almond, peanut, cashew, etc.)
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup (substitute monk fruit syrup for lower carb)
- ¼ cup full fat coconut milk
- ⅛ tsp sea salt
- Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl until well combined. The "batter" should be crumbly, but stick together well when pressed between hands. If it is too dry, add a little more coconut milk and/or nut butter.
- Use your hands to form into balls.
- Store under refrigeration for up to 5 days.
