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.
