The best part is, you can easily make them ahead of time and pack them for on the go. Plus, this recipe is made in just one bowl and makes a large batch so you can meal prep and have them ready for whenever you need it.
They also make the perfect little pick-me up for before or after a workout and are just enough to satisfy that sweet tooth craving.
For this No Bake Energy Bites recipe, you ONLY need 5 ingredients:
- old-fashioned oats (use gluten free if necessary) (I used my Bob’s Red Mill)
- shredded coconut (I used unsweetened but you can use any you have on hand) – or use almond meal, ground flax seed, oat flour or protein powder instead
- peanut butter (almond butter or can also use your favorite nut or sunflower or pumpkin seed butter to keep these nut-free)
- honey (can also swap in maple syrup, brown rice syrup, agave or date paste instead)
- chocolate chunks / chips (you can use chopped fruit or nuts instead)
You can easily use your favorite nut or seed butter you have in your pantry. If you are looking for a recipe without any added sweetener – you can use banana instead like I did in the Cranberry Energy Bites and feel free to swap out the chocolate for nuts instead.
They are completely NO BAKE and make a delicious healthy snack. We love making a double batch and enjoying them straight from the fridge when we need a quick pick me up.
