Apple Pie Energy Bite Recipe

Whether you need a quick breakfast, a pre-workout meal, or an easy snack, sometimes you just need something that’s sweet, healthy, and satisfying, all in one.

That’s where these apple pie energy bites come in. The oats, apple, and honey will give you energy, and the almond butter and protein powder will help you stay full for more than two minutes.

Plus, they’re easy to make and since you can store them in a freezer, are ready to go whenever you need a quick bite!

Here’s your Apple Pie Energy Bite recipe:


1 cup oatmeal
1 scoop cinnamon or vanilla protein powder
1 small apple, diced really small
1/4 cup unsweetened almond butter
2 Tbsp honey
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Total prep time: 20 minutes


Dice your apple up really small (just pretend you’re chopping an onion), then mix the apple along with the other ingredients in a medium sized bowl.

Make sure to stir everything together really well—the last thing you want is to take a bite of dry oatmeal (or worse, a giant clump of cinnamon or nutmeg) when you’re eating one of these.

If the mixture isn’t sticking together quite right, just add a little more almond butter or honey until it’s sticky enough you can mold it into small 1-2″ balls.

Place the energy bites on parchment paper and stick them in the freezer, wait 30-60 minutes, and eat! You can also put them in the fridge instead and eat them fresh after chilling them for an hour or so, but I like them best frozen.

  1. I just made these! They are amazing. I always worry about being able to taste the protein powder, but I actually added 1/2 scoop and still didn’t taste it! I also added some chopped walnuts and rolled them in ground oats (pulsed them in the coffee grinder) to help keep them from sticking together. Awesome recipe!

  2. Those look yummy Krista. Can’t wait to try them.

    FYI – Have a girlfriend I’m going to start doing training with following you, doing 12 minutes.
    I hope she loves it as much as I do !

  3. These look amazing! I make a similar version with peanut butter, chocolate protein and oats but have never tried with the apples and cinnamon… Definitely going to be making these 🙂
