Healthy No Bake Energy Bites

One of the handiest tricks I know when it comes to losing weight or just trying to eat better is to make sure you always have an easy snack on hand. Something healthy to munch on will keep you from reaching for cookies or other high-sugar snacks you will regret. I love making a batch of these healthy No Bake Energy Bites to carry with me through the week so that I always have something good to eat when I am fighting cravings.

They couldn’t be easier to make, either. Here’s what you’ll need:


1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup old-fashioned oats (raw)
2/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut, toasted and cooled (optional)
1/2 cup ground golden flaxseed meal
6 Tbsp chocolate chip minis


In a medium-mixing bowl stir together peanut butter, honey and vanilla extract.

Combine remaining ingredients and stir until evenly coated. Transfer mixture to refrigerator and chill until set.

Remove from refrigerator and shape into 1-inch balls.

Store in refrigerator in an airtight container. Enjoy!

What is your best trick for losing weight? What is your favorite snack to have on hand?
