No Bake Energy Bites

My husband recently brought home some chocolate from Israel. His co-worker brought it back from a trip. I was intrigued by the packaging. Instead of a caloric count on the back, the label read “energy”. I love that. Food = Fuel. Sometimes I forget that the food I eat provides energy to my body. These no bake bites are packed with delicious whole food that will give you a little get-up-and-go. Easy to throw together and perfect for stashing a couple in your purse for an on-the-go snack. My kids love these babies. They are easily customizable to your likes as well. Just about anything could be substituted here. Feel free to change it up with any variety of nut butter or whatever you have in your pantry that you think may be good. Have fun and enjoy!

Perfect bite sized snacking!

Yum yum yum!


No-Bake Energy Bites Recipe
from Smashed Peas and Carrots


  • 1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats)
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed.  Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.  Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like.  (Mine were about 1″ in diameter.)  Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.

Makes about 20-25 balls.

  1. I am making mine now but it is to dry I had to put in 1 c of peanut butter and they don’t look anything like yours. There is so much oatmeal and I followed you recipe exactly. They are in the fridge now for a second time cause I had to add more peanut butter. They are good but I want the same consistency as yours so I can roll them into a ball.

  2. Mine are waiting in the fridge right now but I feel so impatient, from the taster I did, I just want to eat the whole bowl! Thanks for the recipe!!
