I make a lot of recipes that I’ve never even thought of sharing here, on this website. I think: this is way too simple of a recipe to share. That was flawed thinking, because I know moms, working parents, and pretty much anyone, loves a good, simple recipe that comes together in no time. So here you go. One of my simplest recipes (that I make way too often!). No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Coconut Bites.
One of the other reasons I hesitated to share this was because pretty much every food blogger has some variation of these bites on their site. Do I really need to add another version of this recipe to the internet? Why not? There may be many other recipes like this floating around, but my site doesn’t have one. So sure, let’s do it!
A friend sent me this recipe (like I said above, another food blogger’s version!) quite a while back and I instantly wanted to make them, so I did, but adapted them for the way I like to make things. I added shredded coconut because, well, if you’ve been following this site, you already know that it’s one of my favourite ingredients. Around this time, I had also discovered hemp hearts, and was adding them to everything! So I threw some in to see how they would work. The result? Perfect.
It was the simplicity of the original recipe that drew me in. I do love to spend time in the kitchen making complex things (when I have the time!), but sometimes, I just have to go with something that’s quick, easy, simple, and of course…delicious. My no bake peanut butter chocolate coconut bites checks all of those boxes.
Having a batch of these bites around will make your day a little easier because they’re a quick snack to grab and eat…you’ll appreciate that when you’re busy. They’re also very kid-friendly (my kids love them!)
And I saved the best for last. The big bonus with this recipe is that it’s no bake! No turning the oven on! You just mix the ingredients together, shape into balls, and you’re done! All in 15 minutes or less. I hope you love them!

How to Make No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Coconut Bites
Add the rolled oats, shredded coconut, hemp hearts, and chocolate chips to a bowl. Whisk to combine.
Add the maple syrup and the peanut butter. Mix until everything is combined well.
Scoop a tablespoon of mixture into your hands (using a tablespoon or a tablespoon cookie scoop) and using your hands, roll into a ball. Set aside and repeat with the rest of the mixture until it is all used up.
- This recipe makes 15 x 1.5" bites, but feel free to make yours smaller or bigger.
- This recipe works best with natural peanut butter. The type I use is the runny kind that needs to be stirred and the only ingredient on the jar is peanuts!
- Store unused bites in an airtight container for up to a week and a half.
