I love these energy bars because they taste great, easy to make and freeze well.
Awesome No-bake Energy Bars

by Joshua_Howe

A lot of energy bars use peanut butter, which is great, but can be overwhelming. These bars, with the combination of honey and coconut (as well as other things) are much lighter on the peanut butter taste. Funnily enough, there's enough PB taste for those who love it, but light enough for those who aren't as enthusiastic.


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened, your call)
  • 1/3 cup mini-chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup chia or flax seed (optional).


  • Large bowl
  • Spoon
  • Cookie sheet
  • Rolling pin
  • Parchment paper (optional, but very handy)

Note: The images for this Instructable were done with a triple batch, the amounts listed won't make as much. I could have used another batch to fill the cookie sheet in later steps).

Step 1: Stir it Up

Start with your dry ingredients (coconut, chocolate chips, oatmeal and flax/chia seeds) and mix together well. Not a necessary step, but can make it easier to ensure you get a consistent mixture.

Add the honey and peanut butter and mix well until you have a pretty thick mixture.

The mixture will be sticky in the end, but if you feel it's a little too wet, add a little more oatmeal.
