No-Bake Energy Bites Recipe

No bake energy bites recipe. A snack (or breakfast) that you don't have to feel guilty about eating. Repin to save!

I recently discovered this recipe for no-bake energy bites on Pinterest. I’m always up for a healthy, no-bake dessert recipe. Especially ones that take just a couple of minutes to throw together. I’ve featured a couple of similar recipes on my blog before:

These no-bake energy bites from Gimme Some Oven taste somewhat between chewy chocolate chip granola bars and oatmeal-chocolate chip cookie dough. They totally pass for dessert in my book, but are so much more healthy than cookies, brownies, or cake. They’re great for an on-the-go snack or even for breakfast with some yogurt and fresh fruit. Give them a try. You probably have all the ingredients on hand in your kitchen right now.

Ready? Go!

Make These Into Energy Bars Instead

You can also make these into bars that are vegan and healthy. Simply grease a small square baking pan, add the oat mixture, refrigerate, cut, and serve.

Just a reminder: Over the past few weeks and in the coming months I will be posting recipes that I have found on Pinterest. Don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest, my source of endless recipe, fashion, craft, and DIY inspiration! And while you’re at it, like my Facebook page.

No-Bake Energy Bites Recipe

Yield: 24 energy bites

Cook Time: 10 min

Add in chopped nuts or dried fruit if desired. Toasting the dry oatmeal and coconut really enhances the flavor of these treats. Don't skip this important step!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dry oatmeal, toasted
  • 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed or wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. You may want to heat the peanut butter in the microwave a bit before adding it to the rest of the ingredients. Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  2. Remove and roll into bite-sized balls. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container.

    Anything no-bake is great by me. Though it’ll probably stop being called healthy once I’ve had twenty of them!
