Inspired by your favorite cowboy cookies, these no bake energy bites are made with healthy ingredients for a gluten free breakfast or on-the-go snack you’ll love! 


Units Scale
  • 3/4 cup gluten free rolled oats (See notes)
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup chopped nuts
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup no stir creamy nut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
  • Gluten free oat flour or plant based protein powder as needed (1-3 Tablespoons)


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the rolled oats, chocolate chips, coconut, coconut sugar, nuts, and a pinch of cinnamon. Add the creamy nut butter and honey or maple syrup, and stir again to combine.


Do not swap out the rolled oats for quick oats! They will not hold the bites together well.
