Natural Snack

Here's a quick, all natural little snack we've been munching on around our house that I thought you might enjoy.  They're no-bake, all natural energy balls/bites.

I first saw them on Krista's blog where she talked about how delicious they were. I pinned her pin to my pinterest board and finally made them myself, you can find the original recipe at Food Doodles.

I stayed close to the recipe but a few slight changes.

No-Bake Energy Bites

1/2 cup all-natural peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 cup finely shredded coconut
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup ground walnuts
1/4 cup chopped, dried mixed fruit (cranberry, blueberry, strawberry)
about a teaspoon sea salt

***UPDATED: I have been roughly chopping up some milk chocolate chips and love that addition. It's not so natural but it's really good!***

You mix the peanut butter and honey together, then mix in the rest of your ingredients.

No-Bake Energy Bites

Refrigerate for at least 30 min. and roll into little bite-sized balls - I got 30 out of them. I stuck them on some wax paper in a tupperware dish in the fridge and they lasted about 5 days.

I'll be making a new batch tomorrow and trying the frozen version, Heidi, mentioned.

  1. those look yummy, I'm gonna have to try em!

  2. Definitely going to make these. I have been looking for a new granola type recipe.

  3. these look yummy! I just made energy balls I found here: that look similar to your recipe and they were so good!

  4. Just made these and I'm excited to eat them! The thing I love about them already... You use all the measuring cups in the set, but nothing sticky that gums it up when you have to re-use it. Haha!

  5. Do I need to substitute anything for the coconut? I'm not a huge coconut fan and I wasn't sure if I would need something else to help them bind together.


I know it can be a little scary but go on, I'd love to hear from you!
