These tempting little bite-size snacks, inspired by Kelly's no bake energy bites, are a delightful combination of oats, seeds and fruit. They make a mid-morning or afternoon energy boost. If you don't have dried barberries, goji or cranberries are great substitutes.

  • 1 med Ripe banana, mashed
  • 60 g Smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla powder
  • 2 tbsp Chia seeds
  • 130 g Quick cooking oats
  • 25 g Dried barberries (or cranberries)
  • 40 g White chocolate chips
  1. In a large bowl, mash the banana with a fork. Mix in peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla until smooth.
  2. Stir in chia seeds and oats. Mix until well combined. Now add in dried barberries and white chocolate chips.
  3. Divide the mixture into 25 g portions, then roll between lightly moistened hands to make about 14 balls. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.

Wow, these are great. I'll surely make some soon, as I am trying to cut down on sugar intake! Maybe I'll leave out the chocolate chips.

I love this kind of things and I happen to have an open bag of barberries. Although goji berries also sound good, somebody mentioned them above, I could also imagine to make these using goji.

Claudia 27/1/16 02:00

I have seen barberry bushes - but none with actual berries! Must be a different bush. But these are just the thing - to satisfy my sweet tooth and get me off this winter-eating pattern I've developed that is not helping my waistline. You make everything so pretty.

[Reply]
Reeni Pisano 27/1/16 02:04

I never had a barberry before! Don't even know if you can find them here but I would LOVE them with cranberries! They are as irresistible as dessert.
