No Bake Coconut Energy Bites with Dates – Sugar Free

Vegan No Bake Coconut Energy Bites with Dates – Sugar Free, Peanut Free. With pine nuts and toasted coconut flakes, great snack, quick breakfast or dessert.

When in an office for over 50 hours a week, it is crucial that I have healthy snacks to hold me over. These No Bake Coconut Energy Bites are full of delicious, healthy ingredients like: oatmeal, dates, walnuts and chia seeds. I added some coconut butter for a more tropical flavor, and to also to make them taste more on the dessert side. The energy bites are sugar-free, peanut-free, gluten-free, vegan and no bake.

No Bake Coconut Energy Bites with DatesA great,  chewy and crunchy texture is achieved by adding some pine nuts and toasted coconut to the mix. As you can see, these are not your “usual” energy bites. I avoided using any common nut butters like peanut butter or almond butter. Using only coconut butter made the bites taste lighter, with a great buttery texture.

These No Bake Coconut Energy Bites will give you a nice boost of Omega 3 from chia seeds and walnuts. They are also covered in vegan and gluten free cookie crumbs to avoid sticky fingers. I like how easy they are to make, grind a few ingredients, mix everything in one bowl, scoop, refrigerate and eat. I thinks the bites taste better straight from the fridge, since at room temperature the coconut butter tends to have a softer texture.

Enjoy some for breakfast, as a snack, or to tame a sweet tooth! These are husband and toddler approved!
