Lady A’s Energy Bites- Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free and Low Salicylate

unnamedA while back a dear friend (miss you e.b.)

made this recipe and brought it to a recipe snack swap.

They were so yummy! Tonight I am going to a healthy living potluck and

I came across the recipe yesterday, and wondered if I could modify it for Lady A.

Here is what I came up with:


  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oatmeal
  • ½ cup cashew butter (low salicylate)
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds- w/Sea salt (we like this brand)
  • ½ cup ground flaxseed (in a clean supplement form here)
  • 1 tsp Frontier Alcohol-free vanilla
  • Optional – mini chocolate chips (we omitted these for Lady A’s version, since chocolate is not on the approved food list at the moment)unnamed-3

Mix everything together in a bowl and refrigerate for about an hour.

Remove and roll into bite-sized balls! Pop one in your mouth and ENJOY!

unnamed-2Rolling tip- I rolled the balls in plastic wrap (non BPA!) because when I used my bare hands the stickiness of the mixture kept making the balls fall apart…. oops!

    Looks yummy! Thank you for sharing. I don’t know about your non-BPA plastic wrap. It probably isn’t a problem in this use. I tend to mistrust all plastics in general, for prolonged contact and especially for heating food. You may know more than I do, but I learned that the BPA is used as a hardener, so it is often found in hard plastic items. When those are marked BPA- free, the BPA has been substituted with BPS, which is very similar, just as endocrine disrupting, but not yet on the radar for most people and also not on the label.
