No-Bake Cookies have met their match with these Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Bites. It doesn’t get much easier than just stirring everything together and pouring it into a pan.

Before I tell you more about these amazing No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites, I’d better confess that no-bake cookies and I have a bit of a love/hate relationship.

I love how easy they are to make; I hate how unattractive they tend to be. I love how rich the chocolate and peanut flavors can be; I hate the raw oatmeal that frequently overwhelms the cookies.

When I ran across these no-bake bars, I couldn’t believe I’d never thought to try making the cookies into bars. At least they would look better, right?

I’m going to be flat out honest here and tell you my thinking when I started making these treats. (My friend Donna can attest to it because we were talking on the phone at the time.)

I thought, “I’ll make these because the kids will love having a dessert over the weekend and I won’t be tempted to eat more than one.”

That is seriously funny in hindsight. I almost licked the saucepan clean as I was waiting for the bars to harden in the refrigerator.

The additional coconut, honey, and nuts in these bars take them far out of the league of traditional no-bake treats.

That oatmeal that I dislike in other cookies? It is providing structure and just a bit of flavor, instead of being the dominant ingredient.

There are plenty of options with these bars. If you prefer a completely unprocessed ingredient list, use a pure dark chocolate, natural peanut butter, and unsweetened coconut.

If you are like me and have no plans to give up your refined sugars (and are too impatient to make a special trip to the store), use whatever is in the house.

No Bake Chocolate Bites

I found that a 1″ square piece satisfied my chocolate craving. (One square at a time, that is. I can’t even describe how much I enjoyed these treats!)

As I was enjoying one of these with my husband late last night, we both agreed that they put store-bought candy bars to shame.

All the deliciousness of no bake cookies - in an easy bar method!

Kitchen Tip: I use these bowls, this spatula, and this pan to make this recipe.

    I love these, I use a little less coconut oil and more peanut butter just so they dont melt too fast. I also mix up the nuts with what I have. They are sooooo great.5 stars

  2. Debbie says

    Hi!

    The No Bake Peanut Butter Coconut Bites recipe looks delicious! Is there anything I can sub for the oats? I know my husband would love these , but he’s allergic to oats.

  3. JoAnn says

    Am I the only one who doesn’t understand the :amounts: listed for ingredients ? ( what is 0.42 cups of oatmeal ) ????

    • Mary Younkin says

      Hi JoAnn, the recipe is written with 2 cups of oats. It sounds like you may have accidentally adjusted the number of servings. (there’s a slider for that in the recipe card if you hover over the number of servings.) Doing that will change the amounts to unusual portions.

  4. Janet says

    Oh my goodiness!!! I made these today and they are sooo good. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I love to cook and love cookbooks. I’ll look yours up.

  5. Heather Curry says

    My family loves these. The flavors compliment each other well. Will definitely be making these again5 stars

  6. Mindy says

    These are awesome!! They are the perfect summer treat – no oven required and served chilled. I love that there is no refined sugar added, and most importantly they are so tasty! I used a glass dish, and had a hard time getting them out, so would grease the pan or line it with parchment paper next time. Thank you!!5 stars
