No Bake Energy Bites

There is no baking, no cooking, no melting, no nothing. They taste fab and there's not a hint of tasting 'like they're good for you'.

Tweaked from a recipe by Gimme Some Oven


  • 1 cup jumbo porridge oats
  • 2/3 cup shredded coconut (NOT sweetened)
  • ½ cup smooth peanut butter
  • ½ cup ground flax seed
  • ½ cup chocolate chips (I used plain - otherwise it gets a bit too sweet)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Measure all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and thoroughly combine - it's much easier to start with a spoon and then finish off with your hands.
  2. Chill the mixture in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. Once chilled, use a spoon to scoop out balls of the mixture and roll it in your hands to make balls - approximately 15-20.
  4. Store the balls in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.


Smooth peanut butter works much better than crunchy in this recipe as it is often a bit looser and therefore everything combines easier in the mixing stage.
