Friday Food: No-Bake Chocolate Energy Bites

Anytime you can take some energy to go and not have to bake it, we think you have a winner.  We found this recipe that can give you a boost in energy and also get you a chocolate fix while you're at it.  Simple and pretty quick to make up.  Give them a try.


  • 1/2 cup no stir almond butter or creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Up to 4 tsp warm water, as needed
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats (raw)
  • 3/4 cup toasted or raw coconut 
  • 1/2 cup flaxseed meal
  • 6 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. In a mixing bowl, stir together almond butter, honey, vanilla and coachmen's powder.  If mixture seems to thick stir in 2 tsp warm water to thin.  Add oats, coconut, flaxseed meal and chocolate chips and stir until evenly coated.  At this post if mixture still doesn't stick well, stir up to 2 tsp water as needed.  Transfer mixture to refrigerator or freezer and chill until nearly set and easier to handle.
  2. Remove from refrigerator and shape into 1-inch balls.  Store in refrigerator in an airtight container.
