A bowl of bite sized energy bars.This recipe was shared on Facebook by a friend. I left off 2 ingredients. It calls for 1/2 cup ground flax seed and 1 Tbsp. chia seed which I probably should not have because I am on blood thinner. I didn't add anything else to the recipe in place of these 2 items and they came out really good. They are even better when they have been in the refrigerator for several days but you need to put them out of sight as they will get gone fast.


Cook Time: no baking

Yield: 25 one-inch balls


  • 1 cup oatmeal (I used old fashioned)
  • 2/3 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate morsels
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Ingredients for No Bake Energy Bites


  1. Mix oatmeal, coconut flakes and chocolate chips together in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Mixing together the ingredients.
  3. Mix peanut butter, honey and vanilla together in a small bowl until smooth.
  4. A bowl of smooth peanut butter.
  5. Add to the oatmeal mixture and stir until well mixed.
  6. Mixing the peanut butter into the dry ingredients.

  7. Set in refrigerator for an hour.
  8. Roll into 1 inch balls.
  9. A plate of bite size energy balls.
  10. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Best to hide them so they will last longer.

This is a great snack recipe. Also, you can make substitutions to it to change it up and make it taste different. Soy butter, almond butter, cashew butter, etc can be used in place of peanut butter.

Similar to energy bars for sale, these bars are made fresher and more frugally with ingredients on hand in many kitchens.

These bites are no bake and they are peanut butter flavored and this recipe included chocolate chips and ground flaxseed, honey, vanilla and oatmeal.

Sometimes I start craving chocolate, but as we all know, candy bars are NOT healthy. The coconut oil used in this recipe actually helps you lose fat.

This is a quick and easy recipe that will satisfy your cravings for chocolate and it's healthy too!

In a small bowl stir in honey, vanilla, and peanut butter. Add dry ingredients; blend thoroughly. Mix with your hands to make sure all dry ingredients have been well coated. Pack in a lightly greased 9 X 12 teflon pan.

Before I cut into bars it appears they may crumble. Used 6 tablespoons of agave, I don't want more sugar. How about peanut butter? Any suggestions? Thanks.
