Maple Coconut Energy Bites

Maple Coconut Energy Bites-4

Hello! Can I just say that I am so excited for warmer weather this week! Because here in Minnesota it has been cold. Like snow flurries in April cold. Now, there are 70’s in the forecast and I am ready!

Aren’t these little energy bites just the cutest? This is the perfect recipe to have on hand for spring and summer. They are so easy to make, with no oven needed! We love to eat these for snacks or alongside a smoothie for breakfast. Delicious and filling!

These adorable little bites are so adaptable too. I use Sunbutter most of the time, but you could use any nut or seed butter. Feel free to get all crazy with the add-ins too. Don’t like coconut? Try dried fruit. Or mini chocolate chips if you’re feeling indulgent:-) Or maybe coconut and chocolate chips. Yes, that sounds just fine.

Maple Coconut Energy Bites
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup sunflower seed butter
  • ½ cup flax seed meal
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  1. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients well.
  2. Using your hands, roll into balls. I like to roll them small, about 1" in diameter. This makes them perfectly poppable.
  3. Store in the refrigerator.

    Maple and coconut – what a great flavour combination!! I love maple!! These look like they would be very tasty. Thanks for sharing:)

  2. Natalie says

    I can’t have seeds (sunflower, flax… Or dried fruit)
    Any suggestion on how to make these without this 2 ingredients? Thanks!
    These sound amazing!!

      Hi Natalie! These are so adaptable that you could definitely work around the seeds. You can easily use any nut butter in place of the sunflower seed butter, and I’ll bet oat bran or wheat germ (if you can have wheat) in place of the flax would work well! Let me know if you try it. Good luck!!

    Sounds great how many calories what can I substitute for maple syrup that is less caloric and sugary. Thanks

      Hi Arlene, I have only made these with maple syrup. You could try adding a little more nut/seed butter and a little less of the syrup. Let us know if you try it!
