These moxie bites will get you moving and motivated! They are a nice treat to enjoy and require no baking. There are so many different versions of this recipe online, but this ratio of ingredients is my favorite. I first started making a version similar to these when my sister-in-law was pregnant called, “Lactation Bites” or “Lactation Cookies,” but you do not have to be a mama to enjoy these energy bites!
The flaxseeds and chia seeds are an easy way to add extra omega-3 fatty acids to your diet along with fiber. I find both of these seeds at Thrive Market or Trader Joe’s.
I like to use local, raw honey when making this recipe for some added antioxidants. I really like Dr. Axe’s article that he wrote on the benefits of raw honey. You can check that out here to learn more.
The peanut butter I use is pure peanut butter with no added preservatives or sweeteners, just organic peanuts. If peanuts are a problem, you can swap out the peanut butter for almond butter and they will still be just as tasty.
I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats. All oats are NOT gluten free! The oats need to say “gluten free” on the package. Oats are considered gluten free but they are contaminated with gluten during processing so that’s why you have to find a brand that specifically says “gluten free” on the package. I emphasize this point because I have been sick from consuming oats that were contaminated.
The chocolate chips I love and use are Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips. I have been using this brand for years now. Plus, they are dairy free and soy free which is great for allergies or autoimmune disease. When I make this recipe I buy the mini chocolate chips.
These bites are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and curb your sugar cravings. I would love to know if you try them!
