No Bake Energy Bites

Hey yall! I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I received a great response to my chocolate chip & oatmeal no bake energy bites, so I thought I would share this super simple and yummy recipe with yall!

Not only are these easy and quick to make, but they are healthy enough to snack on while still tasting like a dessert.  These have been a staple in our house for the past few weeks, I love how they give me my chocolate fix while also helping to make me feel full.

I apologize for not taking more pictures during the process of making them, if you have any questions just post them below.


1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup old-fashioned oats (raw)
2/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut, toasted & cooled (350* for 10 minutes - ovens may vary)
1/2 cup ground golden flaxseed meal (I used Hodgson Mill brand)
6 tbsp mini chocolate chips (resist the urge to add more...they just end up at the bottom of the bowl)


Stir together peanut butter, honey & vanilla extract in a mixing bowl.  Add the remaining ingredients until everything has been evenly mixed together.  Roll the mixture into 1 inch balls, getting your hands damp will help with the stickiness.  You can also refrigerate first before shaping - I am too impatient for this.  Place the balls in a sealed container and refrigerate before serving.  Enjoy! 

This will yield 20 energy balls.

If you try these out, leave me a comment and let me know if you love them as much as I do!
