These No-Bake Healthy Chia And Coconut Bites are really quick and easy to make. As the title states, they require no baking. Simply mix the ingredients in a bowl, chill for a few minutes in the fridge and then roll them in some coconut and chia seeds. They will keep in the fridge for several days and are so versatile. Take a couple to work as a snack to beat that mid-afternoon slump… pop a few into your gym bag as a post-workout snack… put one into the kids’ lunch box as a healthy treat… you can even eat them as a grab-and-go breakfast on busy mornings.
Not only do these little bites of heaven taste amazing, but they are also super healthy too. The oats, nut butter, and chia seeds provide a natural slow releasing energy boost with lots of protein to keep you full until your next meal. I used a mix of peanut butter and almond nut butter in my recipe but you could also use cashew butter or hazelnut butter, depending on your preference.
You can also add some additional ingredients such as raisins, other dried fruit or chocolate chips. I opted to simply roll them in desiccated coconut and chia seeds. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Please do let me know if you try this recipe. I would love some feedback!
