Here is a snack that passes as healthy but tastes good enough that it could replace your dessert! So who wouldn’t love this recipe?

Not to mention these No Bake Energy Bites are quick and easy – and they require no cooking or baking of course (as long as you buy pre-toasted coconut btw).  A close up of No Bake Energy Bites


I could easily finish off the whole batch myself. They are so addictive and they really do taste like a treat.

They remind me of something like a granola bar and even peanut butter oatmeal cookie dough (can’t beat that!). They make for a great snack or they are great for an on the go breakfast for those rushed mornings.

Ingredients You Need To Make Them;

  • Peanut butter
  • Honey
  • Vanilla extract
  • Old fashioned oats
  • Toasted shredded coconut
  • Ground golden flaxseed meal
  • Chocolate chips

I love that they contain protein and fiber so they curb those afternoon munchies (you know around 4:00 when it’s like – is it dinner time yet?).

I also love that they are a great snack for my kids that’s made with healthy ingredients that they really do love, I’m not begging them to eat them, rather they beg me to make these all the time!

Try them soon, once you do you’ll want to live on these No Bake Energy Bites!

  • Kylie: These are SOOOO amazing!!! Perfect healthier dessert substitute! October 27, 2018 at 4:44pm Reply

  • Kelley: Is the calorie info you loaded per 1 inch bite? September 21, 2018 at 11:35am Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes, you could cut some choco chips or swap some flax with oats to bring it down a little. :) September 26, 2018 at 2:26pm Reply

  • hameeda: Can instant oats be used in this recipe? August 15, 2018 at 4:21pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I recommend sticking with old fashioned for best texture and flavor. It would probably alter the consistency with the quick oats because they absorb differently. August 22, 2018 at 5:14pm Reply
