Introducing the most delicious, healthy and addictive discovery of the year…. well, month, I guess.

Energy Bites

No, they’re not meatballs. They’re sweet, totally raw, healthy, delicious Energy Bites!

I found a similar recipe in the fall on Pinterest. But I didn’t get around to making them until my May book club meeting!

They were a huge hit and I’ve been asked the recipe a few times since.

And I promise, if you use white coconut in then, they won’t look like meatballs.

This is the kind of snack I will make over and over. Make a big batch and bring a few to work to sustain you through the day. They’re great if you have an on-the-go schedule like me. Soccer game in an hour? No problem! Just pop in a few of these energy bites and you’re good to go!

You can make whatever substitutions you want too – cereal, nuts… whatever.

Yum yum yum. That’s all I can say about these!

Healthy Energy Bites!

Yield: 20


  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut (I used coloured, and that's why they look like meatballs)
  • 1/2 cup milled/ground flax
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (mini is best)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup almond butter (you can use any nut butter, though)
  • 1/3 cup liquid honey


  1. Mix all ingredients thoroughly and chill. Roll into balls and devour!
  2. Adapted from Smashed Peas & Carrots
