I LOVE quick and easy snacks!  My whole family enjoyed these, and best of all, they are pretty healthy!  They reminded me of chewy granola bars in a ball form!  They were seriously so good!  If your are looking for a quick snack to whip up for your kids or yourself, this would be the perfect one!

    Those sound and look wonderful! Except I really can't stand coconut… would it hold together as well w/o it or any ideas what I should substitute it for?

  4. 4

    Does anyone know what the nutritional value of these are by any chance? :) My email address is ilovetahsha@gmail.com THANK YOU!

    Great idea! I'm going to make some right now! My calorie counter website says these are 100 calories a piece if it makes 24. See this link for the nutritional info as written. http://caloriecount.about.com/no-bake-energy-bites-recipe-r875489

  14. 14

    WOW, really easy and yummy :D

  15. 15

    These look yummy!I saw a great idea for storing these for lunches, etc… Someone used a traveling soap dish! (clean of course! lol) I thought that was a smart idea!Blessings,Linda

  16. 16

    I made these, adding in a little trail mix, and they are yummy! Kids love them too. :-)

  17. 17

    just made these! SO GOOD! Used Vegan Chocolate chips and agave! YUM

  18. 18

    I make something similar to these for my daughter except they have craisins, carrots, wheat germ, and sunflower seeds and no chocolate chips. I've never really enjoyed them but she eats them up big time. THESE look like something that I would enjoy too!

  19. 19

    I am SO glad you mentioned Shakeology! I have a whole bunch sitting around that we haven't been using enough… it made the energy balls SO GOOD!

  20. 20

    I forgot to pick up peanut butter today. Does anyone think Nutella will work as a substitute? I really want to try it out!

  21. 21

    Oooh, goodness those look good–like I want to go and make some right now good!

  22. 22

    I have made these in many different variations. I usually just throw whatever sounds good at the moment in! We just call them trail mix balls. These are awesome to take out hiking..so good and so easy to make!

  23. 23

    I love this! It is perfect for kids in sports who need a good snack but that is so much better than anything in the vending machine! Have a wonderful weekend! Angie xo

  24. 24

    How many does the recipe make? Thanks

  25. 25

    These look so good too, your newest follower. Cant wait to see some more of your yummy treats

  27. 27

    Hey Nikki, these look delicious!!! YUM! Thanks for sharing!

  28. 28

    Love this! I am putting it on my to-do snack list! Thank you!

  29. 29

    These sound delicious! Perfect to take for a snack to school! Thank you!

  30. 30

    Can you freeze them for later use? These look so yummy!

  31. 31

    How do you add carrots? Just shred them up nice and thin?

  32. 32

    oh dear! I wish I would have read this BEFORE I made them and ate half of them the other day (too yummy!)… :)

  33. 33

    Nutella would definitely be too soft in place of the peanut butter, IMO

  34. 34

    I'd add some rice crispies or crushed cereal of some sort; I think they would be too sticky/gooey without the coconut.

  35. 35

    I don't like coconut, but I like everything else I see! I will have to make these for my gym buddy and I! Thanks for sharing

  36. 36

    You could also add some protien powder in there as well proabably! I've heard of that before

  37. 37

    so awesome!!

  38. 38

    TJ, I was going to say the same thing!!

  39. 39

    I don't care for coconut either and had one of these last night before I knew they had coconut. I couldn't even tell. They were great!

  40. 40

    These are great! I love themMy sister does not usually care for coconut and she couldnt even tell these had any.

  41. 41

    Do you use quick oats or old fashioned oats? These look amazing!

  42. 42

    So glad you enjoyed my recipe! These never last long at our house!!

  43. 43

    Yum, these look good! Does it matter what type of oats you use, quick or old fashioned?

  44. 44

    I made these last night for my teenager to take up skiing. What a great recipe. Thanks! These will be made again and again for sure. I wasn't sure what kind of oats to use either so I went with 1 minute oats and the recipe turned out just fine.

  45. 45

    how much do you add?

  46. 46

    These look delicious! How long do they last! I would add chia seeds and almond butter…

  47. 47

    what is chocolate shakeology???

  48. 48

    YA I too would like to know what this shakeology is…. Please someone enlighten us that dont know. I have to go to town today and want to get all the things that i will need, but I have never herd of this.

  49. 49

    Shakeology is a powder protien drink mixed w water, you have to order it thru a beach body leader (thru p90x)

  50. 50

    I was wondering the SAME thing:)

  51. 51

    You could add powdered milk.

  52. 52

    http://www.shakeology.com/ Check it out! I add Shakeology to some of my regular recipes and it is to die for! Literally :) I know some health nuts who use a silken tofu and mix it in w/choc. shakeology to make a healthy pie too. There are so many uses for it! Also, one serving of shakeology is equiv. to 30-40$ worth of produce. Yes, you would have tp eat $30-$40 worth of produce to get the same nutrients! It does wonders for your health, weight, metabolism, and energy. Plus it comes w/ promise of your money back if u decide its not your thing! :) No, I'm not selling it! I just know howwwwww good it is, and happen to believe in it ;-) Hope u try it sometime! Good luck!

    Just finished making these, so easy and yummy. Thank you!

  55. 55

    I make these all the time and do not use coconut. My version you put the oats in the blender and blend them just a bit. I also add dried cherries (or you could use raisins). I love to freeze them and eat them partially frozen.

  56. 56

    I don’t really like coconut… I think I’ll try some raisin brand instead

    Great and easy recipe! I made with crunchy peanut butter and 1/2 chocolate chips and 1/2 butterscotch chips and they are WONDERFUL! Our whole family loves them – thanks for sharing the recipe!

  58. 58

    I am so thankful for fast, easy, and healthy snacks! I am NOT a cook at all and don’t enjoy cooking or eating that much…so I have very little motivation to get into the kitchen. But my husband has to eat…so I really need to do something about it. Thank you for this post!

    Considering everything that goes to school or daycamp these days MUST be nut free, I decided to sub out the peanut butter for some pureed chickpeas in this recipe. Amazing! No really! You can’t even taste them! They held together nicely, and the kids love them! I did up the honey to about a 1/2 a cup though too.

  60. 60

    Good, but really sweet. I wouldn’t add the chocolate next time; some type of dried fruit instead. Recipe makes 24 balls that are about an inch in diameter. Chilling didn’t help the texture or stickiness at all.
