These no bake bites are perfect if you love white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. They taste exactly like that except in bite form! Made with just a few simple ingredients including oats, cashew butter, shredded coconut, maple syrup and macadamia nuts and mini white chocolate chips, they’re perfect if you’re not in the mood to bake a whole batch of cookies and want something fun to snack on.

Energy bites/balls tend to be made of whole oats and peanut butter, and while I like those too, sometimes it’s fun to switch it up with different flavors inspired by your favorite cookie or treat. This recipe does contain oats (feel free to use gluten free old fashioned oats) and give these bites an amazing texture along with the nut butter that tastes like a perfect bar!

I like that adding collagen or protein powder gives energy bites a little more staying power to make t

Description

White chocolate macadamia nut no bake bites are sweetened naturally, made gluten and dairy free with almond flour, coconut, macadamia nuts and white chocolate. They are everything you love about a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie wrapped into a bite!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 cup regular or gluten-free old-fashioned oats 
  • 3/4 cup creamy unsweetened cashew butter 
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder and or 1 serving unflavored collagen
  • 2 tbsp. blanched almond flour
  • 2 tbsp. coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup 
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt 
  • 1/3 cup macadamia nuts 
  • 1/2 cup mini or regular white chocolate chips 

Instructions

  1. Combine all of the ingredients together in a food processor except for the macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips
  2. Pulse a couple times until a dough begins to form. Lately add the macadamia nuts and pulse just 1-2 more times so that you still have some nut pieces intact. 
  3. Transfer the batter into a bowl, and use a wooden spoon to fold in the white chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Remove from fridge and use a cookie scoop to portion, out the batter. Rolling in your palms to form a ball and then rolling into more coconut flakes. Alternatively, you could also omit the white chocolate chips from the batter, melt them and coat the balls in the chocolate for a white chocolate chips coating. For this way I recommend melting the chocolate in the microwave in increments of 15 seconds until melted. 
  5.  For either way you coat them, store bites in the fridge for up to a week.
