Are you ready for an awesome snack? I am totally focused on revamping some of our favorite recipes & making them better for us. Are you with me?! So I decided to create these Cinnamon Raisin Energy Bites – because they are loaded with peanut butter & oats to keep us all feeling full & give us energy PLUS the addition of a favorite flavor- cinnamon.
There are so many days that my son volunteers at the station, has lecture early in the morning or he’s working a super long shift. He almost always is rushing out the door & barely has time to pack food, let alone prepare something & sit down & eat. He just doesn’t always have time to make himself a breakfast that will stay with him until they can break for lunch.

Fortunately these are super simple to make. I can whip them up quickly ahead of time & portion them out in easy to go baggies or containers so he can grab & go. Just combine all the ingredients in a large bowl & fold together until well incorporated. Then scoop out tablespoon sized portions & roll between your hands to form a ball. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet & chill in the refrigerator before enjoying.
Here are some commonly asked questions…
How long do your chill these before you can eat them?
I like to refrigerate at least 4 hours. If I am in a real big hurry I will pop them in the freezer for about an hour.
Do we have to include the raisins?
I understand raisins aren’t for everyone. You can definitely leave them out.
What else could I mix in these?
You could do mini chocolate chips, craisins, sunflower seeds or mini M&M’s. They would all be delicious in this recipe.
