Coconut Almond Joy Energy Bites – Chocolate, almond and coconut combine with oats, coconut oil, chia seeds and more for a sweet no bake snack that’s good anytime.
Today’s post is brought to you by chocolate and coconut. These tasty bites are a great healthy snack option. Although this recipe is posting for the first time it’s been in my drafts section for a LONG time. And somehow i never got around to sharing it all with you.
I’m a huge fan of coconut and chocolate together. It’s one of my other favorite combos besides banana and chocolate.
Things you’ll love about these:
- No bake. Yay! Snack time is here much sooner.
- Super easy, just mix the ingredients, together. Shape them and refrigerate them.
- Whole healthy ingredients like oats, almonds, unsweetened coconut and chia seeds
These are sweetened a bit with just some honey so I love that they are a less indulgent, less sugar option on those days where I still want some chocolate in my life. Well, that’s just about every day. Chocolate has a huge place in my diet. But this one leaves me without the guilt and that makes us instant friends.
Hope you get a chance to try them!
Have a great week! Hope it’s filled with good food and your favorite people around the table.
Til we meet and eat again,
