Toasting the Coconut:

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.)

Ingredients for No-Bake Energy Bites:

These particular no-bake 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. 😉

For a lower calorie option, you can use powdered peanut butter. It has less fat and calories than traditional peanut butter! You just mix the powder with water and stir until smooth to use it as a peanut butter replacement. Our favorite powdered peanut butter brands are PB2 and PBfit. (Great way to add peanut butter flavor and protein to other foods and smoothies too!)

Rolling Your No Bake Energy Bites:

Scooping out about a tablespoon of the mixture is easy with my cookie scoop. It seems like just the right amount to make each ball.

I scoop, then squish the mixture with my hands so it will stick together, and gently shape and roll it into a ball. Storing these yummy energy bites in the refrigerator or freezer works well. I often double this recipe so I can keep the extras stashed away in the freezer!

This is a Weight Watchers friendly recipe! Just 6 points per serving! See all of our recipes with Weight Watchers Point calculations
