No Bake Energy Bites

I shared with you a few weeks ago 3 Ways I’m Getting Healthy by exercising, cooking healthier and cutting out some sugar and caffeine. I wish I had started doing this when I was younger but I don’t think it’s too late to start.

I’ve also found that I absolutely love coconut oil. I’ve been using coconut oil like crazy! I have one jar in my bathroom and one in my kitchen.

I don’t know if you’ve seen these or not, but these No Bake Energy Bites have been floating around Pinterest so I decided to give them a try and I love them!

No Bake Energy Bites
After I made mine I realized I added 1/2 cup honey instead of 1/3 cup so that’s why mine look a little different. I should have added more oats. Leave it to me to mess up the most simple recipe! But these are still delicious and healthy.

Here’s all you need:

1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (I used regular size because that’s what I had but mini’s would work better.)
1 tsp vanilla

Mix all the ingredients together. Refrigerate it for 30 minutes to make the mixture firmer and easier to work with. Roll in to one inch balls. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

That’s it! When you’re having a craving for something sweet these are a great alternative!

There are a variety of ways to make these. My friend Myra from My Blessed Life who is my health guru has a recipe for Chocolate-Cranberry Energy Bites.

Have you tried these no bake energy bites? What’s your go to energy snack?

  1. the oldfashioned works just great. Try the almond butter instead of peanut butter and ck the nutrition facts. I believe the fats are better than the peanut butter

    Thank you for the recipe, Cyndi and a big thank you to Betsy for sharing the serving info. I don’t buy or eat most things without checking the serving size and calorie count. My energy snackie of choice is a serving (1/4 cup) of walnuts and one square of Lindts Organic 95 % Cocoa. I break that little square up into pieces and put them in a snack baggie with the nuts. I love oatmeal so as soon as I but some ground flaxseed, I will try those bites ( with semi sweet chips!…love my dark chocolate:-) )

  3. Hi Cyndi.

    They look delicious! I make something similar, but I use Shakeology in lieu of the chocolate chips. Shakeology is a super food, for sure! They are delicious and so good for you. I am going to try yours as well, maybe with dark chococlate chips. http://www.myshakeology.com/ghsamia

    BTW, I love coconut oil too! I use it as my moisturizer when I get out of the shower. :) Thanks for sharing. Always love your posts.

  4. I used the quick cook but I think the old fashioned oats would be good too!
    Thanks for stopping by,

  5. Do you use the quick oatmeal or old fashioned oats?

  7. After putting this recipe into my “SparkPeople” recipe calculator, but not knowing…just assuming after looking on Pinterest at other recipes that say it makes about 20- 1″ balls; that 1 is a serving, this is what I got:

    Total Fat: 5.6 g; Cholesterol: 0.0 mg; Sodium: 30.4 mg; Total Carbs: 12.6 g
