Low-Carb Energy Bites RecipeOct 11, 2021
These four-ingredient Energy Bites are made with cinnamon-spiced granola and almond butter for the perfect packable low-carb snack.
If you’re on a low-carb diet, finding healthy snacks can be a challenge. But avoiding hunger is essential, especially if you’re on the go.
That’s why we love making homemade snacks that are portable, low-carb and satisfy your cravings.
NuTrail Low-Carb Cinnamon Pecan Nut Granola adds warming spiced flavor to these energy bites without a long list of ingredients.
In fact, these treats come together in about 10 minutes with 4 simple ingredients.
How to Make Low-Carb Energy Bites
The key to making these simple carb-concious snacks is to work the dough into a smooth texture that you can shape into balls.
A food processor is the easiest way to make your dough, but a high-speed blender will also work.
As you mix the energy bite dough, scrape down the sides of your blender or food processor bowl to make sure everything mixes evenly.
Note: you can use any nut butter you like to replace the almond butter.
Other Flavor Ideas
It’s easy to mix up the flavors of your low-carb energy bites.
You can add a fruity twist by swapping the cinnamon pecan nut granola with a berry flavor like Blueberry Cinnamon or make something rich and decadent by using our chocolatey Cacao Granola.
Store your energy balls in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container.
They will defrost quickly, so for longer storage, pop them in the freezer, where they’ll stay fresh for months. In the fridge, enjoy your energy bites within a week.
You can pack these bites in a lunch bag or purse so you’ll never be caught without a low-carb snack on the go.

- Place the nut granola in a food processor and blend into a coarse texture.
