Guys, let me talk to you about my newest obsession: these Tahini Coconut Energy Protein Bites!!!

They are seriously out of this world.

And super healthy.

But it won’t even matter that they are sweetened with mostly natural ingredients like dates and the tiniest bit of maple syrup because they are so damn delicious, you’ll keep making them regardless of what’s in them!

Did I mention they’re also nut-free?

Tahini Coconut Energy Protein Bites

I have been wanting to make energy bites for a while, mostly because I have tried a couple that were just out of this world delicious, and I love how cute they are.

What I didn’t realize is how easy they are to throw together, and that they last a super long time.

Just watch this week’s video below.

You’ll soon get it.

Tahini Coconut Energy Protein Bites

Lately I have been eating these non-stop for breakfast when I’m craving something sweet. I don’t know about you but I seriously switch between sweet and savoury cravings for breakfast all the time, I don’t know what it is.

And of course the days I’m craving something savoury like a fried egg or hash browns, I never have the time to make them.

I mean, I’m just lucky I eat breakfast most days. It’s helpful when breakfast comes in bite-sized, on-the-go form.

And you know my obsession with coconut, right?

These energy bites have oodles of coconut.

But not too much though. You can never have too much coconut…

    Taylor, these look awesome and totally up my alley! I’ve been buying the Luna Coconut Cream bars in bulk lately so I can have something on hand for when I’m starving, running around throughout the day like a crazy woman and these look like a perfect homemade alternative. I’ll definitely be giving this one a go! Love the video, too. 🙂

      Thanks so much Cathy! 🙂 I have to admit making them all different colours is a hassle so I settled for just coconut for the remainder of the leftovers. I had to make two batches though because my family kept eating them hehe

    Perfect! While I do bake with sugar at Christmas, I try to keep it to a minimum. It’s great to have some healthier alternatives like this on the cookie tray. And I totally agree–you can never have too much coconut!

      Thanks Elaine – I totally see your point on the sugar thing…I find things wayyyyy too sweet now that I try to keep sugar to a minimum! Even these are borderline too sweet for me and there’s only 2 tbsp maple syrup haha

    I love that this recipe is nut-free and uses brown rice cereal. I’m going to have to look for some when I’m out shopping next. What brand do you use? These energy bites really would make a great on-the-go breakfast.

      Thanks Colleen! OMG energy bites have been my new go-to snack! Love that there are so many different recipes out there. I just made a coconut-chocolate recipe from someone else’s blog today and they were to die for!
