No Bake Energy Bites

  • 1 cup (dry) oatmeal (quick oats stick together better) 
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1-2 TBS chia seeds

  • 1/3 cup honey 
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I prefer chunky--can also use other nut butters instead)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Stir all dry ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Add last three ingredients and mix well.  Cover and let chill in the refrigerator for 20-30 min.
  2. Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like. (Mine were about 1" in diameter.) Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
  3. Makes about 20-25 balls.

Delicious--tastes like No-Bake Cookies, but much healthier!  Recipe adapted from here.  This is a pretty versatile recipe--you can cut out some ingredients (choc chips, chia) and add others (sunflower seeds, chopped almonds).  The original recipe has links to other variations--check them out!
