EASY COCONUT & HONEY ENERGY BITES

March 25, 2019

I am firmly dedicated to easy breakfasts because in the morning there is so much to do right away. So I have loved making these the night before and storing them in the fridge to pop out for people when they need a little something. And it is always shocking how filling you find just one or two of them.

You can actually put them in the freezer as well and they stay soft for eating. They are our utility snack, breakfast, and tasty enough to even be a dessert.

This was my first time experimenting with using wildflower honey and it is SO PLEASANT. For this recipe I used sioux honey – a raw and unfiltered honey you can find in most grocery stores or purchase online. This honey is a product of the usa and helps support local beekeepers and the pollination efforts beekeepers provide for all fruits and veggies. ALSO IT SMELLS SWEETLY OF FLOWERS, AS IF HONEY COULDN’T ALREADY NOT BE MORE CHARMING.

Easy Coconut & Honey Energy Bites
Makes 20 energy bites

2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 and 1/2 cups sweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup honey (I use aunt sue’s raw & unfiltered honey)
2/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Pulse oats and coconut in a blender for about 20 seconds, until coarsely chopped. Add honey, peanut butter, and salt to blender and mix for about 20 more seconds. Chill dough in freezer for 10 minutes.

Roll dough into 1 and 1/2 inch balls.

To dip in chocolate, microwave chocolate chips on 50% power for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Dip balls into chocolate and place on a lined baking sheet or cutting board. Chill in fridge until chocolate is firm.

    Can I use steel cut oats

  • Joyce

    The recipe looks very yummy

  • Janet

    The coconut-honey energy bites are excellent. I love the sensation of chewing to satisfy & these little morsels do the trick for me. But, I must be mindful of the calories. However, one or two will keep you full in between your meals. Do not make the balls large.

  • These are awesome and very tasty. A galpal at work brought these and sent me the recipe. I’ve been reading some of the comments.
    To reduce sugar try Agave Nector and 100% natural Peanut Butter (keep it in the fridge, it will separate, just stir)
    This recipe can handle SO MANY variations, have fun people and experiment.
    Thanks Rachel… I will be back for more :)

  • Sherri

    Can these be frozen?

  • hi! I really want to make this but I’m allergic to nuts.
    what can I use instead of peanut butter? thanx!

    • Anonymous

      Zoe, you can use any nut butter that you are are not allergic to. I have not tried any others (no allergies here). I have a friend that used sunflower butter and she said it was great.

  • These were awesome. Easy to make, delicious and mostly healthy (I’m trying to lose weight so from a calorie perspective, not great but a fantastic treat nonetheless). My 3 year old was super excited to help me make these and then share them with daddy and her teacher. Thanks for the idea!

  • yani

    I just made these, but did not use the coconut and they turned out delish, I found them very easy to roll as well. Just wonder if sesame seed would taste good or even adding fruit such as prunes or dried craisens.

  • Genna

    These are perfectly wonderful! I made these with Ground Blueberry Flax Seeds from Trader Joes and they are so yummy! I’ve been wanting to get in a better habit of eating breakfast, and these will be perfect for a quick out-the-door breaky! Thanks for the recipe!

  • Rachel Schultz

    Yep!

  • Adrianne

    I just made my first batch of these… They are currently in the fridge but the bite I stole was delish! These are going to be for me and my kids! I think they’ll enjoy too without knowing how healthy they are! Thanks :)

  • Shirlee

    Flaxseed will just go right thru you if you don’t grind it a bit…whole seeds do nothing for you!!

    • Anonymous

      I would think once you chew them it’ll be ground enough :)

  • Rachel Schultz

    Nope

  • monica

    do you think I could make these without coconut?

    • Rachel Schultz

      Definitely!

  • Diane

    Hi Rachel,
    Just a quick note to say that I have enjoyed everything that I have made from your blog.
    That being said, is there an easy way to roll up these energy bites? I am using a lot of energy just trying to get them to stick. They are not very pretty to look at.
    I did use almond butter instead of the peanut butter and ground flax instead of whole.
    Any suggestions?

  • Nichole

    ooh These sound yummy!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Thanks! Great to know.

    • Anonymous

      That’s what I thought, so did you make these with ground and did you use the same amount?

  • Daphne

    And can you use quick oats?

  • Daphne

    Sweetened or unsweetened coconut flakes?

    • Rachel Schultz

      Either is fine!

  • Jamie

    What are the nutritional facts

    • Anonymous

      Do you happen to know the nutritional facts? I count weight watchers points and would live to try to incorporate these.

  • Abigail

    Can you use shredded coconut instead of flakes?

  • Jennifer

    Hi Rachel – can you used ground flax?

    • Rachel Schultz

      Yes!

      • Jennifer

        Thank you :)

    • Anonymous

      Yes! I just used a cup of ground flax
      and they turned out great! I did not have
      honey so I use 2/3 cup of pure maple syrup.
      excellent!

  • Kate

    These sound delicious. Just wondering if you could subsitute hemp hearts for the flax seed?

    • Rachel Schultz

      I have not tried it.

  • Shawnee

    I don’t have any flax.. Wondering if I could use chia instead?

    • Rachel Schultz

      Absolutely!
