I love to experiment with “No-Bake” cookie recipes, especially those that are gluten-free, Paleo Diet or perfect for Passover which starts this week. I was excited to make this recipe for No-Bake Mini Energy Bites which I made and tweaked from a recipe I saw on the blog, “Gimme some Oven”. Her recipe is great, but if you want a Passover or gluten-free version, try grinding your favorite nuts and omitting the oatmeal. These are incredible, and I honestly could not keep my hands out of the container. My 3 kids had absolutely no idea there was flaxseed in them. Feel free to use almond butter instead of peanut butter and any of your favorite nuts.
No-Bake Mini Healthy Bites
Yield: 12 to 16 bites.
1 cup finely chopped nuts (I used 1/2 cup each almonds and walnuts)
1 cup toasted coconut flakes
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/3 cup honey
1. Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly combined. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Remove from the refrigerator and roll into 1-inch balls. Store in an airtight container between wax paper and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
Note: You can substitue 1 cup oatmeal for the nuts in this recipe for a non Passover recipe.
