Meanwhile, once I got into the swing of no bake, I just couldn’t stop. It began with these no bake peanut butter coconut bites, moved into these no bake almond butter coconut bites, stopped along the way with these no bake oatmeal raisin bites and these 4 Ingredient No Bake Peanut Butter Coconut Energy Bites, then took a nice long visit with these 3 ingredient peanut butter no bake energy bites. They are THE most popular recipe on the site now.
Funny, because one of the last most popular recipes was those mo bake peanut butter coconut bites. Yes, I just wrote “mo bake.” In fact, I actually wrote “mo bale,” (accidentally, then autocorrect decided to save me from one section: bake).

More than a few readers have asked for a peanut butter fudge recipe and as much as I’d like to oblige, I need at least a few months to test, fine tune, then perfect that recipe. But in the meantime, I thought I’d share something a tad more chocolate fudgier (who knew there could be fudge without chocolate??) and a tad more ready to share!
4 Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Energy Bites Recipe (V, GF): an easy, one bowl recipe for irresistible no bake bites packed with peanut butter and chocolate flavor! They taste like Reese’s Peanut Butter truffles! Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Protein-Rich.
1 cup natural, unsalted creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup coconut flour
¼ cup raw cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. Clear some space in the freezer for this sheet. Set aside at room temperature.
In a medium bowl, add peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut flour and cacao powder. Whisk as long as you can. When the mixture gets harder to stir, use a rubber spatula to fold until well incorporated. Fold until thickened.
Using a cookie scoop, scoop and drop peanut butter balls onto the prepared baking sheet, spaced evenly apart. Here are the 1-tablespoon and 2-tablespoon cookie scoops I use.
Transfer to the freezer to chill for 20-30 minutes, until somewhat firm.* Remove from freezer and roll into balls, or enjoy as is! Enjoy! Storing instructions below.Try the non-chocolate version here: 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter No Bake Energy Bites.
