Coconut Almond Energy Bites

Coconut Almond Energy Bites

A few hot tips to make perfect energy bites: make sure to chop your almonds pretty small; some chunks are ok, but you don’t want large chunks as they’ll make it difficult for your energy bites to hold together. Last, do store these in the fridge. They hold together much better this way, and while I use almond butter here, feel free to use any nut or seed butter you like.


2/3 cup (160g) almond butter (or your favorite nut butter)
3/4 cup (95g) roasted unsalted almonds, chopped (or your favorite chopped nut / seed)
1 cup (90g) Bob’s Red Mill shredded, unsweetened coconut flakes
3/4 cup (75g) old fashioned rolled (or instant) oats
1/4 cup honey (if solid, warm so liquid at room temperature)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt (if your almond butter isn’t salted)


In a large mixing bowl, stir together all of the ingredients.

Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight.

Using a 1-2 inch cookie scoop, roll out ball-shaped bites.

Enjoy immediately, or store in a refrigerated, covered container for up to 2 weeks (or freeze for up to 3 months).
