Hawaiian No-Bake Energy Bites

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time2 mins
Servings: 16 persons


  • 1 1/4 cups shredded coconut, divided (I used unsweetened, but sweetened would work too!)
  • 1 cup dried pineapple, chopped into 1/8" inch size pieces or smaller
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp vanilla(or use homemade vanilla extract!)
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 cup almond butter


  • In a small mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of the shredded coconut, the dried pineapple pieces and the macadamia nut pieces. Mix together.
  • Add the vanilla, honey and almond butter and combine well, turning with a plastic spatula, until "dough" forms.
  • Roll into 16 energy bites, about 1" in diameter.
  • Place the other 1/4 cup shredded coconut and roll each bite in the coconut. Place on plate or small serving dish. Refrigerate for 2 hours to allow the energy bites to firm up.
  • Serve Hawaiian Energy Bites for snack or dessert.
