Becky’s tips

  • Peanut Butter: If you are dealing with a peanut allergy, you can sub other butters such as sunflower seed butter.
  • Coconut: You can also use shredded coconut, but I recommend chopping finer if so.

Storage:Store peanut butter banana no-bake energy bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
