Almond joy no bake energy bites -the perfect pre-workout fuel, afternoon snack or late night treat. Much healthier than an almond joy and SO tasty!

How’s everyone doing with their New Years Resolutions? One of mine was to eat healthier and so far I think I’m doing pretty good at making healthier choices (especially compared to the last few months). I’ve been trying to only have one treat a week (so hard when you have a sweet tooth like mine). These no bake energy bites have been perfect treat when I’m craving something sweet and thinking about going for a chocolate bar. They are much more satisfying than a candy bar and will keep you full longer. I like to keep them in the freezer, so they’ll last longer too.

My favorite part about these energy bites is the flakes of coconut and chocolate chips throughout. So delicious!!

No bake energy bite ingredients

No bake energy bites ingredients

These almond joy energy bites are made with just a few simple ingredients and natural sweeteners (instead of sugar and corn syrup):

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 serving protein powder (vanilla or chocolate)
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 2-3 Tablespoons honey
  • 1-2 Tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips

They are similar to the chocolate peanut butter energy balls  I shared last week, but are made with almond butter and coconut instead. I like to keep both stocked in my freezer, because you never know which mood you’ll be in.

How to make no bake energy bites

I like to use a small cookie scoop (about a Tablespoon) to scoop these out. It makes the perfect bite size serving. I also like to flash freeze the balls for about 15 minutes, so that I can put them into a bag without sticking together. To do this simply line a baking sheet with parchment, wax or freezer paper. Then once the balls are on, place it in the freezer for about 15 minutes, or until firm.

  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 2-3 Tablespoons honey
  • 1-2 Tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

Pulse the oats 3-5 times in a blender to break them up. However, don’t turn them to powder.

Combine the oats, protein powder, almond butter, 2 Tablespoons honey, coconut oil, coconut and chocolate chips in a medium size bowl. Mix until combined. Taste and add an extra Tablespoon of coconut oil or honey if needed.

Using a small cookie scoop (a little less than a Tablespoon), scoop balls and place them onto the baking sheet. Once they’re all on the pan, flash freeze them by placing the pan in the freezer for 10 minutes, or until hard. Then transfer to a zip top bag or container. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
