Prepare a baking sheet or cutting board with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Combine the oats, creamy peanut butter, agave nectar, flax seed, and chia seeds in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly either with a large mixing spoon or with your hands. It will be messy but will come together as you mix it. If it is too dry, you can add a little more peanut butter or agave until it sticks together. If it’s too sticky, add in a little more oats.
Scoop out about 2 ½ Tablespoons of the mixture and roll into a ball (it should be about the size of a golf ball). Use your palm to flatten the ball.
Add a small spoonful of the raspberry jam into the center of the circle you made and then fold the edges over and finesse it back into a ball.
Place the ball on the prepared surface and repeat with the rest of the dough.
Let the energy bites chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes and then serve.
To Store: To store your energy bites, place them in an airtight container and refrigerate them for up to one week.
To Freeze: You can store your energy bites in the freezer in a freezer-safe container for 1-2 months.
If you are tight on time and don’t want to fill each energy ball with your jam, you can simply add the jam into your mixture along with an additional ¼-½ cup of oats. Simply roll the balls up like you normally would once everything is mixed together.
If you would like to toast your oats before using them, use a skillet on the stovetop at medium high heat. Toss the oats with some butter until they are golden brown. Or, use a baking sheet in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Try dipping your energy bites in melted chocolate for an extra yummy layer.
