No-Bake Apple Cinnamon Energy Bites

What’s not to love about granola, applesauce, apple bites, and cinnamon in a no-bake granola bite? 

These are perfect for an after schools snack, and are easy enough for even your kids to help make. 

No-Bake Apple Cinnamon Energy Bites


  • 1 C quick cook oats
  • 1/2 C oat flour*
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/8 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/4 C unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/8 C brown sugar
  • 1/8 C honey
  • 1/8 C apple maple sauté


Take roughly 1/2 C of oats and pulse it in a blender or food processor until a smooth powder forms; measure out 1/2 C of oat flour and combine this oat flour* with 1 C quick cooking oats.

Add in a pinch of salt, 1/8 tsp. baking soda, and 3/4 tsp. cinnamon along with a pinch of nutmeg.  Stir well. 

Mix in 1/4 C unsweetened applesauce, 1/8 C brown sugar and 1/8 C honey. Add in 1/8 C cooled apple maple sauté.  Mix until all ingredients are moist. 

Refrigerate for 10 minutes. 

Then, using a cookie scoop, create 1 T balls of the granola apple mixture.  You’ll get about 12-14 energy bites in total. 

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. 



  1. Would these work with "old-fashoned" rather than quick oats?

    1. I am not sure, I haven't tried it. I might recommend pulsing the whole oats in your blender a couple of times to break that apart and that might work. If you try it, let me know how it goes.

  2. love this recipe and featured it and you on my blog will be out this coming week


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
