Vegan, Gluten-Free Chocolate Mint Energy Bites

Vegan, Gluten-Free Chocolate Mint Energy Bites

NuGo Slim bars are my GO TO for post workout. They are my GO TO for when I need something sweet but healthy & they are my GO TO when my day needs to perk up!

Their nutrition profile is really strong & have a great source of protein, which got me thinking. Why not try to create something out of them. So, I took a few of my other favorite vegan and gluten-free ingredients (peanut butter of course) and created new & improved energy bites featuring NuGo Slim as my source of protein!

These took about 6 minutes total to make & are so delicious. You can definitely try with any Slim bar flavor, but mint was a great choice!

NuGo Slim Chocolate Mint Energy Bites:


  • 1 NuGo Slim Chocolate Mint bar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 3 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • ½ cup raw, gluten free oats
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup*


  1. Break up NuGo Slim bar into smaller pieces & place in blender with about 2 tbsp water. Blend until bar grinds down into mini pieces. (You don’t want it to be fully liquid, suggest to pulse a few times and mix around & then pulse again until small pieces remain)
  2. Pour NuGo Slim blend into bowl. Add in the remaining ingredients.
  3. Mix until fully combined.
  4. Wet hands and roll into 8 balls (think ping pong ball sized).
  5. Place in fridge to cool & harden.
  6. ENJOY!

Each bite has roughly 7g protein, 110 calories, 2g fiber

*for a higher fiber version, sub in ChocZero Maple Vanilla syrup for pure maple syrup: changes nutrition to ~100 calories, 5g fiber per bite.
