Today’s recipe is a little healthier than my usual ones, but is in no way less delicious.

I bring you my protein-packed No-Bake Peanut Butter Coconut Energy Bites. These little snacks are loaded with peanut butter and coconut flavour, and are studded with chocolate chips – they taste absolutely incredible, and are very moreish! 

It’s hard to believe that these peanut butter bites are healthy. They taste more like dessert than protein balls! They are the perfect on-the-go snack – you’re gonna love them. 🙂

How to make No-Bake Peanut Butter Coconut Energy Bites

Here’s the ingredients you’ll need:

  • Rolled oats
  • Crunchy peanut butter: You can use smooth if that’s what you prefer.
  • Honey, maple syrup, or agave: I used agave for this recipe.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Desiccated coconut
  • Chia seeds
  • Chocolate chips: You can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet.

Simply grab a large mixing bowl, and combine all of the ingredients together. The mixture may be too crumbly to roll into balls at this point, so refrigerate until firm enough.

Once firm, roll the mixture into 1oz balls. Keep refrigerated until ready to eat!

These peanut butter coconut bites pack a lot of nutrition. Here’s a quick breakdown:

  • Peanut butter: Filled with healthy fats and fibre. One serving (2 tablespoons) of peanut butter contains 8g of protein! Perfect for a quick energy boost, and will also keep you full for longer. My favourite peanut butter is Whole Earth Organic Peanut Butter.
  • Desiccated/shredded coconut: Full of healthy fats, fibre, and protein. One cup (80g) of desiccated coconut contains 7g of fibre, and 2g of protein.
  • Chia seeds: Just one ounce (2 tablespoons) of chia seeds contains 4g of protein, 10g of fibre, plus vitamins and minerals!
  • Rolled oats: Rich in fibre, protein, and nutrients. 100g of oats will get you 10g of fibre, and 13g of protein.

These no-bake snacks are perfect for when you’re on the go, or just need a quick, healthy energy boost.

When you’re not devouring these energy bites, they will keep fresh in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months.
