No-bake Sweet Salty Energy Bites

4.9 from 9 reviews

Sweet salty energy bites that satisfy chocolate, pretzel and peanut butter cravings, yet are made with only healthy ingredients. A must-have for snack time.


  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ cup peanut butter (watch the ingredients)
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup milled flaxseed
  • 1 cup pretzels


  1. In a stand mixer (or a bowl), combine the coconut oil, honey and peanut butter until they are well combined and the mixture is smooth.
  2. In a blender (or food processor), measure out 1/2 cup of pretzels. Pulse until they are half crumbly and half small pieces, about 5-6 rounds. You basically don’t want large chunks of pretzel, but you don’t want teeny tiny crumbs either. Using the markings on the outside of the blender (or a measuring cup), measure out 1/2 cup of crushed pretzels. Repeat this process with more pretzels if you don’t quite reach 1/2 cup. Add the pretzels to the bowl with Team Wet.
  3. Without rinsing out the blender, add the oats, shredded coconut and flaxseed. Pulse until the oats and coconut are crumbled together in small pieces, about 5-6 rounds. Pour Team Dry into the stand mixer.
  4. Using the paddle attachment, turn the mixer on low and mix all the ingredients together until they are well combined and sticky.
  5. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out balls onto a cookie sheet. When the cookie sheet is full, pick up each ball with your hands, squish the contents together and shape into a ball. Place the ball back onto the cookie sheet and freeze for 30 minutes.
  6. Store in the fridge or freezer, although the freezer is preferred if you’ll be packing these in lunches.


For an extra indulgent treat (and to make the balls prettier), dip them in chocolate and roll in extra crushed pretzels.
