No Bake Energy Bites with Nutella are an easy no bake breakfast or snack. Made with peanut butter, oatmeal, ground flaxseed, honey, coconut oil and Nutella.
Disclosure: This post was brought to you by Ferrero U.S.A, Inc., the makers of Nutella® hazelnut spread. I received promotional consideration to write this post to support the Nutella 50th Anniversary . All opinions expressed are my own.
Breakfast is always a busy time with everyone rushing to get out the door on time in the morning. I love easy breakfast ideas that are ready to eat.
I made these No Bake Energy Bites that can be quickly eaten with a piece of fruit and a glass of milk. They are made with peanut butter, oatmeal, ground flaxseed, honey, coconut oil and Nutella. Everyone in my family loves them!
My Nutella story is that I first learned of Nutella when I was in middle school. I had a neighborhood friend named Emily, whose mom was from Germany. Emily introduced me to Nutella.
She would put it on toast for breakfast and I thought that was the coolest thing ever. I’ve been a fan of Nutella ever since then and have passed the love on to my kids.
To make the No Bake Energy Bites, mix together rolled oats, crispy rice cereal (or shredded coconut), Nutella, peanut butter, ground flaxseed, honey, vanilla, coconut oil and mini chocolate chips.
The great thing about energy bites is that they are easily customizable depending on your family’s favorites. You can add shredded coconut instead of crispy rice cereal or dried fruit instead of mini chocolate chips.
Scoop the mixture into small balls. I used a tablespoon-sized cookie dough scoop. Place the balls on a piece of parchment paper.
Use your hands to roll them into tightly packed balls. Place the no bake energy bites in the fridge to set.
These No Bake Energy Bites are perfect for a quick breakfast when eaten with a piece of fruit and a glass of milk. They also make a great snack! I want to make another batch and try replacing the mini chocolate chips with chopped nuts.

I know these are energy bites but I plan on making them for the first time, and will also make some as “treats” version using Trader Joes “Cookie Butter.” You are not living if you if youve never tried cookie butter! LoL They also have a chocolate version as well as a pumpkin one during the holidays! Yum!

I meant to specify I would use the cookie butter instead of Nutella.
Cookie butter is life!! How did it turn out?
Rosetta Dorsey says
Yes cookie butter is life.
I guess I’m missing out on life…I need to try this cookie butter I guess.

So many nice and healthy ingredients and all are wasted on nutella… Otherwise it sounds cool
I am very disappointed in the idea of using Nutella. It is made with sugar and bad fat. What might be substituted?
Im sure there are many alternatives you can try. Im surprised by the somewhat critical nature of some comments because she used
Nutella. Time to be creative and thank her for sharing the recipe!!
Tonia, thank you for posting so many great recipes. However, if you look at the ingredient list of Nutella, you will know that this recipe is not “clean”.
How many calories per service?
Thank you! 🙂

If I make these without the flaxseed, will it make any kind of difference in the taste?
How much honey does the recipe call for? When I’m looking at it above it just shows a square box beside the honey. Everything else shows up ok.
1 cup old fashioned, rolled oats
½ cup crispy rice cereal (or shredded coconut)
½ cup Nutella
¼ cup peanut butter
½ cup ground flaxseed
⅓ cup honey
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup chocolate chips
