A simple recipe for no-bake energy bites. Made using healthy, energy boosting ingredients. You won’t feel guilty eating these!
Today I’m sharing one of my go-to healthy snack recipes. These no-bake energy bites are a breeze to make and you wouldn’t even guess they’re healthy, because they taste just like dessert!
Once rolled, the energy bites will keep in the fridge for up to 1 week. I love having a batch of these ready for snacking on during the day. If you have a sweet tooth just like me, these bites make a fantastic treat and will satisfy any sweet craving you may have!
The best part about this recipe, besides the fact it’s no-bake, is how short and simple the ingredient list is. You’ll need: old-fashioned oats, coconut, linseed (flaxseed), peanut butter, honey and chocolate chips. That’s it!
I love the peanut butter and chocolate flavour in these bites. Because these bites are no-bake, feel free to play around with the ingredients and add-ins. I like the idea of adding a pinch of cinnamon to the mix. You could also swap the chocolate chips for raisins or nuts, if you prefer.
So if you’re looking for sweet treat that is a little better for you, give these energy bites a try. I promise you, they taste exactly like “healthy” truffles! 😉
100g (1 cup) old-fashioned oats (dry)
50g (2/3 cup) desiccated coconut (or flakes), toasted and cooled
75g (1/2 cup) ground golden linseed (flaxseed)
125g (1/2 cup) smooth peanut butter
115g (1/3 cup) honey or agave syrup
90g (6 tablespoons) chocolate chips (minis or regular)
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, toasted coconut and ground linseed. Add the peanut butter and honey and using a spatula, mix until the mixture starts to come together.
- Finally, fold through the chocolate chips. Cover the bowl and place it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
- Once chilled, roll the mixture into 20 equally sized bites. Store in an airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to one week.
- If you want to make these energy bites chocolate flavoured, omit the chocolate chips and add 25g (1/4 cup) of cocoa powder along with the other ingredients.
