No-Bake Coconut & Banana Lentil Energy Bites

25-30 bites

Preparation Time: 5 min
Cooking Time: 25 min


1 cup coconut flakes, unsweetened 250 mL
1/4 cup sunflower seeds, unroasted, unsalted 60 mL
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 2 mL
1/2 cup mashed ripe banana, approx. 1 whole 125 mL
1/2 cup cooked green lentils 125 mL
3 Tbsp honey 45 mL
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips, or chopped chocolate 60 mL
1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted (not hot) 15 mL
1/2 cup coconut flour 125 mL


Step 1
Place coconut flakes, sunflower seeds, cinnamon, banana, lentils, and honey into a food processor. Pulse until smooth, scrape down the sides and pulse again. Transfer to a bowl using a spatula.

Step 2
Stir in chocolate chips and oil until fully incorporated. Stir in the coconut flour until fully combined.

Step 3
Roll into bite-size balls, about 1 Tbsp (15 mL) in size. Cover and refrigerate or freeze for 5-10 minutes. The bites will become more solid and ready to eat. Store in an air tight container in the fridge to snack on during the week, or freeze until you are ready to nibble.


Quick tip: Coconut flour can be found at most bulk food, grocery, or health stores. You can also use almond flour. Stir in enough flour as needed to easily roll the balls.
Transform these bites into vegan snacks by using vegan chocolate chips, or omitting altogether.
