Toasted Coconut Almond Energy Bites are the perfect simple and easy to make oat-based, granola-like snack that everyone will love!
Seriously! I just want to eat every.single.bite.
These Toasted Coconut Almond Energy Bites have me really excited. I mean, just the flavours here – toasted coconut, almond butter, honey, chocolate! And it’s all rolled into one delicious, gluten free, dairy free and no-bake bites of goodness.
Simple and easy to make granola-like snacks that are great for any occasion – a quick breakfast, an easy and convenient snack, a simple dessert or, if I dare say, lunch because they are just too good not too… I think we all need more Toasted Coconut Almond Energy Bites!
Words do not even begin to describe how absolutely and completely obsessed I am with these coconut almond energy bites.
Alternative titles for these bites were: 1) These are the only thing I’ve eaten for the past week… 2) The only thing I want to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner from now on… 3) A slur of mumbo-jumbo nonsense because my mouth is too full of delicious toasted coconut and creamy almond butter to speak properly.
Again, no words.
They are very much easy to make – not super labour intensive like they may seem and they don’t fall apart or get all crumbly upon first bite. And they are very much trendy for a reason, they’re pretty darn delicious.
MORE ABOUT THIS COCONUT ALMOND ENERGY BITES RECIPE…
It starts at toasted coconut (AKA the best kind of coconut). There’s just something about toasted coconut that is sooo good. The deep toasty flavour. The golden brown colour. The amazing coconutty aroma. And it only gets better when you add chopped almonds and rolled oats.
Toasting the oat and almonds along with the coconut gives these balls such a crazy intense flavour. I have no words to describe the goodness – just do it!!
And then all that delicious toasted goodness sticks together with creamy almond butter and honey. That’s right – toasted, chopped almonds on top of almond butter on top of sweetened (or unsweetened – whatever you have on hand) shredded, toasted coconut on top of honey on top of oats. And then fold in some mini chocolate chips. Because everything is even more delicious with chocolate.
I use a cookie scoop to measure out my bites – but you can use a tablespoon measure, ice cream scoop or just wing-it to scoop out your bites into however big or small you’d like. Then just roll and pack them tightly and let them set in the freezer for 20 minutes or so before storing them in the fridge.
I think they’ll be gone before you know it.
