No-bake bites with Cranberry, Pistachio, White Chocolate and Chia Seeds, perfect for Christmas.  These energy balls make a healthy easy snack for kids and adults alike



  • 1 Cup rolled oats
  • 3 Tbsp white chia seeds
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 3/4 Cup nut butter (almond, cashew, peanut)
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 Cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup pistachio nuts


  1. Place the rolled oats, maple syrup. nut butter and chia seeds in the food processor. Blitz quickly until  combined
  2. Add the cranberries, nuts, and chocolate chips, pulse until they are distributed  evenly in the mix
  3. Set the mix aside for 20 mins, this allows the chia seeds to gel a little and will mean the mix is easier to roll into balls
  4. Scoop out tablespoonfuls and roll into balls (my tablespoons hold 15ml)
  5. Refrigerate


  • Any nut butter can be used, in this recipe I find almond or cashew better as peanut butter is a little strong in flavour, but if you love peanut butter it still works
  • Refrigerate for up to 5 days or store in the freezer
  • In this recipe I have specified white chia seeds as they look a little prettier with the light coloured ingredients, but black chia seeds will work just as well
