Frozen Energy Bites to Fuel Your Training

It has been quite a while since I last shared a recipe and these Frozen Energy Bites are just too good not to share! My youngest brother sent me this recipe and I had to try it for myself using Once Again nut butter.


I had the privilege of enjoying Once Again's Cashew Butter, Peanut Butter, Almond Butter and Sunflower Seed Butter. Their products are organic and contain minimal additional ingredients, which I really appreciate. Their main ingredient: Nuts!

Now on to the recipe. Because you know you want to try these:


Frozen Energy Bites

  • 2 mashed bananas
  • 1/2 cup nut butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • Optional: add 1/4 cup honey or applesauce 

It really doesn't get more simple than this! I mixed everything together in my Kitchen Aid starting with the bananas and moving down the list.

I did try the recipe with two different nut butters: first with Once Again's Almond Butter and second with the Peanut Butter. They both were great flavor-wise but the peanut butter worked best because of it's firmer texture. The almond butter was a little more runny and didn't hold the oats together well.


After mixing the ingredients, I spooned them onto a tray and simply placed them in the freezer. They "set" for an hour or two and were the perfect afternoon snack.

P.S. How cute is the Once Again raccoon mascot? Meet Rocky. Check out the Once Again "About Us" page to learn the story about Rocky the nut butter mascot!


My brother stored his in an empty egg carton and that was a great idea that saves space in your freezer:

I hope you enjoyed this recipe as much as I did!

The Cashew Butter would be tasty in this recipe as well but I preferred to eat it by the spoonful. If you haven't tried it before, I highly recommend Once Again's Cashew Butter. SO good!

The Almond Butter and Peanut Butter are also great products. The Sunflower Seed Butter wasn't my cup of tea but I do appreciate its natural ingredients.

Where'd all the Cashew Butter go?!

  1. I used to make something similar, but I didn't freeze the mix. I'll have to try this - especially when it warms up!

  3. I've never heard of the Once Again brand of nut butters. There are so many that I want to try but wish I could just taste samples of them first since they are rather pricey!

    1. Yes, exactly! Once Again nut butter was new to me and I was thankful to be able to sample. There are so many nut butters at the store and I wish they each had sample spoons!
