Summer is the perfect time for travel. Day trips to the beach, short weekend trips and even week-long trips all occur during the summer. I always like to travel with a few snacks on hand but finding a healthy snack that travels well is difficult. I love to have something that is slightly sweet, healthy and provides added nutrients. Coconut Cream Pie Energy Bites are the perfect snack for summer travel. With only five ingredients, they can be prepared in little time and taken with you for the perfect on-the-go snack. Pair them with a Starbucks Teavana® Shaken Iced Tea and you have the perfect snack for summer travel.

I’m shaking things up this summer with the new Starbucks Teavana® Shaken Iced Teas. Teavana® Shaken Iced Teas are premium loose leave teas shaken by hand 10 times to mix and unlock unique flavors. I  love all of the flavors, Teavana® Shaken Iced Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade™, Teavana® Shaken Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade™, and Teavana® Shaken Iced Black Tea Lemonade™. The Teavana® Shaken Iced Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade™ and Teavana® Shaken Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade™ are our drinks of choice when we want something sweet and on-the-go.

Coconut Cream Pie Energy Bites
Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1 1/2 cups Medjool dates*, pitted
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut

Instructions

  1. Add the almonds and cashews to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until nuts are finely chopped (but do not pulse too long, you do not want the nuts to turn into a paste). Add the dates and coconut oil. Pulse until the dates are finely chopped and the mixture starts to clump. Shape the mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls. Roll in coconut to coat outside of the balls. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Notes

If Medjool dates are not available, any other pitted date will work.

    These look so darn good, Ashley! I need to make some of these for easy grab n go snacking. I also need to try some of those Starbucks teas. I usually go for the same ole Caramel Macchiato whenever I go there but it would be nice to change it up sometimes!
    Hope you have a great weekend, Ashley!

  2. Serene @ House of Yumm

    Ashley these little energy bites sound absolutely delish! I love coconut stuff. So summery. And those starbucks drinks sound perfect for summer too! I usually get the same thing every time I go there. Maybe it’s time to switch it up 🙂

  3. Min @ MJ and Hungryman

    Can’t wait to check out the Starbuck’s new teas! All the flavors sound amazing..I shall start with Iced peach green tea ;). These bites make me want to go on a road trip…perhaps after my exam!

  4. Zainab @ Blahnik Baker

    You make the best energy bites! But these have got to be my absolute favorite…coconut!!! Love!! And I am a junkie for those shaken ice teas at Starbucks. The new passion fruit one is sooooo goood!!

  8. Ashley | The Recipe Rebel

    I’m a little obsessed with coconut…. and these days, extra energy too! Love how simple they are!

  9. Erin {Delightful E Made}

    Hi Ashley! These energy bites look fantastic. I made some energy bites a few weeks ago, and you’re so right. They really do make great on-the-go snacks. Much better than something not-so-healthy you would get at a drive-thru or convenience store.
    Have pinned and will be sharing on my DEM facebook page later today.
    Have a great weekend, Ashley!

      Thank you so much for sharing, Erin! And I definitely agree that they are much better than what you could buy at a convenience store!

  10. Kelli @ The Corner Kitchen

    I have been wanting to try these iced teas for weeks! They sound so amazing. Ok, it’s time for me to step away from the iced coffee and finally order one of these this weekend.

    I heart your energy bites!!

  11. Melanie @ Carmel Moments

    Their teas look so delicious. Can’t wait to treat myself to one soon.
    Have a great weekend Ashley!

  12. Natalie @ Tastes Lovely

    Kiiiind of obsessed with those Starbucks shaken iced teas. Have you had the blackberry mojito one? So good! There’s a Starbucks right around the corner from my work, and I keep finding excuses to head down there and get myself an iced tea. They would go so great with your coconut cream pie energy bites! Yum!

  13. Alice // Hip Foodie Mom

    Coconut cream pie energy bites?!! and they are no bake?! oh my goodness, I love this, Ashley!!!

  14. marcie

    I love your energy bites, Ashley, and these sound extra amazing with all of the coconut! I really enjoy Teavana iced tea, too, and am craving one after seeing your photos! Have a great weekend. 🙂

  15. Marly

    I have always had a thing for coconut cream pie, so I can’t wait to try these energy bites. I need me some energy!!

    • Ashley

      I hope you try them, Marly! I was surprised how much they actually taste like coconut cream pie without all the added sugar!

  16. Danae @ Recipe Runner

    Healthy snacks are so hard to find when you travel and when you do find them they charge twice as much for them. I love these yummy little coconut cream energy bites! Coconut cream is one of my favorites. Having a delicious Starbucks Teavana iced tea to go with them sounds like the perfect combo!

  17. Pam

    I love coconut anything… these look tasty!

  18. Kristi @ Inspiration Kitchen

    Oh my gosh Ashley – I cannot remember the last time I had coconut cream pie, but I love it!!! You’ve totally brought back some great memories and these energy bites looks amazing! Pinned!

  19. Cindy @ Pick Fresh Foods

    I have seen the new Starbucks teas, but haven’t tried on yet. I have a friend that is in love with Teavana, so I’m sure they are amazing 😀
    I love your energy bites and all those nuts look yummy!

  20. Ashlyn @ Belle of the Kitchen

    Ashley, these sound amazing!! I love coconut cream pie, and these sound like the perfect healthy alternative! I’m a Starbucks junkie, too, and I would love to have a big handful of these to go with my drink. 🙂

    These energy bits look delicious, Ashley! And all those iced tea flavors have me drooling, I am such an iced tea addict…

    Thanks for the recipe. I have just made this delicious energy bites. I used raw almonds and salted macadamias and cashews (all I had in the pantry) and tastes like “salted caramel”. So good. Good recipe. Will try again with raw cashews…

    • Ashley

      Hi, Maggie! I am so glad to hear that you loved them. The addition of the salted macadamias sounds incredible!
