No-Bake Mini Healthy Bites: Gluten-Free and Passover

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

Prep Times:

15 minutes


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.

  1. I’ve actually seen these on pinterest! They look awesome. When I first started blogging years ago, every other recipe was a healthy snack ball or truffle bite recipe…I rolled out so many back in the day. Need to try these!

  2. What could I replace the coconut flakes with? I was thinking quinoa flakes but I don’t have any. I’m allergic to coconut and nuts (was gonna replace the nuts with sunflower seeds).

  3. I want to make these and wonder if you used sweetened or unsweetened coconut and did you use semi-sweet or milk choc chips? Thanks, Alison.

  4. I made these to take with me to a holiday gathering so my gluten-free friend could enjoy. His wife requested the recipe. Thanks, Alison.
