No Bake Almond Oatmeal Energy Bites


About two years ago, I started to focus on my hair health. After a lot of research I decided to start making changes to my diet to support my hair. The first thing I did was add a biotin supplement to my diet.

I have been taking biotin* for almost two years. When I had the chance to partner with Nature Made® Biotin Adult Gummies.  I jumped at the opportunity.

Why? Nature Made® has the first gummies certified by USP for purity and potency. You can purchase these at your local Walmart.    Nature Made® is a gummy you can trust.

Everyone is different so always discuss changes to your diet with your doctor.

Nature Made® tests its gummies for purity and potency so you get the added assurance that it has the nutrients you’re seeking. Plus, they are an easy way to add biotin to your diet. *Taking biotin daily may help support healthy hair, skin, and nails if you are biotin deficient .†

Almond Oatmeal No Bake Energy Bites

Incorporating hair-healthy food, vitamins, and biotin into my diet has made a big change. This recipe for Almond Oatmeal No Bake Energy Bites are loaded with nutrients that your body needs for beautiful and healthy hair.

  • Almonds – Almonds are packed with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids
  • Oats – Oats contain dietary fiber, B vitamins, and important minerals like zinc and copper
  • Coconut – Coconut has a high fatty acid content and is loaded with fiber and micronutrients
  • Orange – Oranges are loaded with Vitamin C, which is important in collagen production
  • Cranberry – Dried cranberries are a good source of fiber and vitamin C
  • Cinnamon – Cinnamon has traditionally been used to help improve blood circulation
  • Raw honey – Honey is naturally antibacterial, and contains trace amounts of minerals

These energy bites are one of my favorite new recipes. They are perfect for breakfast or any time you need a pick me up at school, the office or home. Love, love love these.

I can’t decide what my favorite flavor is. The orange, the cranberries…the familiar cinnamon and oatmeal, or the almond and almond butter.

Feel free to make these energy bites with your own favorite ingredients. Add sunflower seeds or chia seeds for even more flavor and texture. Or swap out the cranberries for mini dark chocolate chips or raisins. If you like this recipe, you should also check out our Fresh Apple Oatmeal Muffins or our Honey Citrus Salad.


Nature Made® gives you the assurance that you’re getting the nutrients you seek from your gummies. Follow them on Facebook for more information.

      Hi, Miss Jean. I have updated that information. It may vary a little based on the brand and exact amounts of honey and almond butter used, and sweetened vs unsweetened coconut, but approximate information is 3 energy bites per serving, about 280 calories. See above for the full nutritional info. 🙂

    This is the perfect little snack for after school, or after a workout….even to tuck in a bag and take on a hike. No bake treats are the best, and you can get the kiddos to help make them too. Fun and tasty for everyone.

    My hair isn’t falling out in huge clumps yet but it’s always been thin and prone to winding up in the drain. These energy bites look like they have great texture.

    These kinds of energy bites did wonders. especially during the after noon hunger pangs. I too use Biotin for my hair and nails. Love your version of energy bites.

    What can I use in place of coconut?

      Hmmm…you could use chopped dates. That would give it the sweetness and some stickiness to help bind them together. For the same texture, you could use shredded carrots but you would want to refrigerate them quickly to prevent browning. Let me know if you try them with substitutions, I would love to know how they turn out.
