Delicious and simple Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Energy Bites that taste like a yummy sweet treat! These no bake snack bites are made with creamy peanut butter, fiber-rich oats, toasted coconut, dark chocolate, pecans and a touch of honey for sweetness. Easily gluten free and low FODMAP for a simple snack on the go.
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup rolled oatmeal (quick oats work here too), gluten free if necessary
½ cup chopped chocolate or chocolate chips
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
⅓ cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
To toast the coconut: heat a pan over medium-low heat and add the untoasted coconut to the pan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until the coconut is golden brown.
Stir all of the ingredients together in a large bowl until well combined (you can use a stand mixer for this or just your hands!).
Allow the mixture to chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
Once chilled, roll into balls (any size you want!) and store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
This recipe has not been tested for FODMAP content, but if you roll these balls into a size that allows for 16 or more bites, all ingredients are used in low FODMAP amounts according to the Monash University app.
