Ingredients you’ll need

Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these energy bites. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.

  • Rolled oats: Quick porridge oats work fine too.
  • Crunchy peanut butter: You can use smooth peanut butter if that’s what you prefer.
  • Honey, maple syrup, or agave
  • Vanilla extract
  • Desiccated coconut
  • Chia seeds
  • Chocolate chips: You can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet.

How to make No-Bake Peanut Butter Coconut Energy Bites

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the oats, peanut butter, honey, vanilla, coconut, chia seeds, and chocolate chips until completely combined.

Refrigerate the mixture until firm enough to roll into balls.

Roll the dough into 1oz balls. Refrigerate or freeze until firm before serving.

The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

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.

How long will these bites last? 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.

I don't like peanut butter, anything I can use instead?

Almond butter works, too.

I made these today but as I couldn't find any chocolate drops that were dark chocolate and low sugar, I used organic cacao powder for a chocolate taste instead - delicious, even my kids love them and said they taste like Reeves... plus want them for school breaks! Oh and I sprinkled cocoa powder over them too. Lovely recipe, thank you.

Mine always turn out dry. If they end up dry how can I fix it without throwing it out?

Are they too dry to roll into balls, or do you mean too dry to eat once rolled into balls? You can try adding a little more honey or peanut butter next time.

Sinfully delicious! I will take on every hiking/kayaking/outdoor activity for a little extra oomph. Ps: No-one in my family realizes I’m switching out their junk with wholesome options.

These are super yummy, but very sweet (I used agave) and so loose I have to eat them with a fork - even out of the freezer. I used all natural peanut butter - just peanuts and salt and it was pretty funny so that didn't help. I think next time I might try a little more oatmeal and a little less agave. REALLY tasty though!

Hi Kim! My favourite peanut butter to use is Whole Earth. If you choose a more runny peanut butter, you may need to use more oats to prevent the mixture from falling apart. I'm glad you enjoyed the overall taste of them! :)
