No Bake Chocolate Banana Energy Balls Recipe ~ Delicious Recipe for Energy Bites Loaded with Chocolate Chips, Banana, Coconut, Oats, Flaxseed, Chia Seeds and Spiced with Cinnamon!

Prior to last summer I always stuck my nose up when someone mentioned how they LOOOVED energy balls. I mean come on give me a cookie or something. Now that I can get excited about. Then last summer when I was trying to eat a bit healthier but yet wanted something to satisfy my sweet tooth I gave these No Bake Chocolate Chip Energy Balls a try. I was hooked. You guyssss it was like eating a cookie! In fact Miss K refers to them as cookies and I don’t correct her! After that I knew I needed another version so these White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Energy Balls were born.

It’s been a few months since I’ve tried a new flavor and I needed to mix it up so I decided to invent these No Bake Chocolate Banana Energy Balls! You see I was totally craving some Chocolate Chip Banana Bread so I decided to try to curb the craving with a bit healthier choice. I wasn’t disappointed. It was the perfect marriage between banana bread and an oatmeal cookie!

These little snacks would be perfect for the guys out planting right now. It’s springtime here again and that means my family is busy putting the seed in the ground. Tonight Miss K’s Auntie Missy picked her up and took her out to ride in the tractor with Uncle Brent while he planted soybeans. Oh man, was she over the moon with excitement! When she came up I had to laugh as Missy said she talked the whole time. Yup, that’s my girl. Never a dull moment when she’s around. My Mom likes to inform me that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I bet you can’t believe that!

Uncle Brent helped Miss K dig up a soybean and she was so thrilled to show me it. It was like it was a magical bean! We immediately had to put it in a bag so she could bring it to daycare and show her friends. Missy said that they were .2 seconds away from a meltdown when she couldn’t find it in her jacket pocket when they got home. A little bit dramatic that girl is! It’s not like I know where to find a million more of those or anything!

If you are looking for a treat to satisfy your sweet tooth and not feel guilty these No Bake Chocolate Banana Energy Balls are calling your name!

To make these No Bake Chocolate Banana Energy Balls a little bit lighter I used the brand new Truvía® Nectar. It’s one of my favorite secret ingredients because it helps me reduce the calories in delicious recipes and not sacrifice the flavor. Truvia® sweetener is natural, great-tasting sweetness that was born from the leaves of the stevia plant.  These No Bake Chocolate Banana Energy Bites are the perfect grab and go snack!

    Is it possible to add calorie value per serve to your recipes?

    • Julie Evink


      I’m sorry Rae, at this time I don’t provide that information. I’m not a nutritionist and I don’t want to mislead anyone. I recommend using a site like MyFitnessPal.com to calculate it!

      • cody


        if your going to go through the trouble of posting recipes, then by law you need to add the calorie value to the post, maybe a lot more people would share and give better reviews if you went the extra step to add that, I know that your not a nutritionist but out of respect for your readers and sharers you should add that to your recipes, just saying, I have been a nutritionist for 20 years and when I am looking at recipes that don’t have the Calorie intake listed on the recipe, I usually don’t bother with it because people want to know what the nutrition value is before they go to the expense of making it, and I know for a fact I would share more recipes and spend time on them more if the calorie values are listed, the only way your going to mislead someone is if you don’t have that info, let them decide whether its right for them or not, that’s like going to the grocery store and wanting to buy a product that has no nutrition value listed on the package, are you going to buy that item even though its not listed? I think not!

    Such a great and healthy way to satisfy my sweet tooth! 🙂

  • Danielle | The Creative Bite


    Energy balls are the best! I love this banana bread twist.

  • Sarah


    I would like to try these and take them hiking. How are these unrefridgerated? Will they keep or do they get too soft?

    • Julie Evink


      I think they would be fine in a hard plastic container, but if it’s 100 degrees out they might get to soft!

  • Tabitha @ Tabitha Talks Food


    I loved these! I’ve never used banana in my energy balls but they came out great! I didn’t have the sweetener so I substituted with honey and they came out great!

  • Julie


    I tried these with almond butter and they weren’t really staying together so I put them in the freezer for a little while and they were good to go!
