Healthy No Bake Energy Bites Recipe
Easy, healthy snack or treat!
If you love a good peanut butter/honey combo, then you will love these – regardless of if you are trying to eat healthier or not. My whole family thinks they are delicious!
I’ve been cleaning up my eating (I love this cleanse) and trying to make things from scratch rather than buying processed foods full of chemicals! (Side note – if you want to do the same cleanse we’re doing here at Fabulessly Frugal, you’ve got to watch our class all about how to detox/cleanse your gut!!).
To toast the coconut flakes, I just cook them briefly in a skillet over medium heat, shaking from side to side to stir things up every minute or so. You’ll know they are done when most of the pieces are a light golden brown and the aroma becomes stronger.
(In the photo above the coconut is just starting to brown, so I cooked it for another minute or so more. You can see the finished product in the photo below.)
These particular energy bites consist of oats, toasted coconut, peanut butter, ground flax seed, honey, vanilla, and chia seeds. Of course, mini chocolate chips would be awesome in there too, just not quite as healthy. 😉
You can choose to add either of the optional ingredients or leave either out. Either way these bites are yummy!
I like to get about a tablespoon of the mixture with my cookie scoop. It seems like just the right amount to make each ball. I scoop, then squish it together with my hands so it will stick, then gently shape and roll it into a ball. Storing these yummy bites in the refrigerator or freezer works well. I’m going to double this recipe next time around and keep the extras stashed away in the freezer!
This recipe is TERRAfit-friendly if you skip the chocolate chips (cacao nibs would be okay though).
This recipe is slightly adapted from Gimme Some Oven.
