I have a sweet thooth and I have discovered if I don’t satisfy that sweet, I will snack on more things than if I had just ate the sweet instead.  These no bake energy bites are the perfect sweet for me and I don’t feel guilty when I have 1 or 2.

No Bake Energy Bites-4 

What I love about this recipe is all the options you have to substitute for other ingredients.   Mr. DD said he did not care for the shredded coconut, so I left it out the next time I made them.  You can add different flavors of baking chips of leave that out all together.  I am a pecan fan, so I made sure to include them in my recipe.

You can also subsitiute differnt nut butters if you have allergies.  I am thinking my next batch I will try with almond butter.  My local heatlh store sells the fresh ground almond butter and I think I am addicted to it.  Some of you know that I am a HUGE peanut butter fan so I have been branching out and trying other options.  I won’t give up my peanut butter, thank goodness I don’t have that allergy.
