I’m not going to front – my chef skills are less than practiced. I meal prep on Sunday’s, always, but I am absolutely a creature of habit. I typically make the same things, all the time.

HOWEVER, this is a “lifestyle” blog, and I really want to give you guys a variety of posts, SO I have come to two conclusions:

  1. I will be testing one new recipe a week, and if it makes the cut, I will share with you.
  2. I will be featuring some LIT people under “Lifestyle” – food, fitness, fashion, you name it! There is so much to be learned from the knowledge of our peers so why not share that?!

Today though, I have for you the recipe for these DELISH (if I do say so myself) macadamia coconut energy bites, which I concocted this weekend. They are so easy – which is key for me, because I lose interest/patience in cooking quite quickly.

Coconut Macadamia Energy Bites:


1 1/2 cups oats

1 cup raw macadamia nuts

1/2 cup ground flax seed

1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut coconut 

1/2 cup vanilla protein powder

1/4 cup coconut nectar (or agave, maple syrup or honey)

1/4  cup unsweetened almond/soy/cashew/coconut milk

1/4 cup coconut oil

1 Tbsp vanilla extract

Half of a pack of sugar-free Jello white chocolate pudding mix


  1. Melt coconut oil

  2. Combine coconut oil, coconut nectar (or other syrup of choice) and vanilla

  3. Add all dry ingredients

  4. Add soy/almond/cashew/coconut milk.

  5. Mix together with a spoon and roll into balls. No baking required!

That’s it! I told you – easy as 1,2,3,4,5!

Great for an on the go snack, and sweet enough to satisfy a mid-day sugar craving! Let me know what you think!

Lastly, if you want to submit anything or would like to be featured me, slide in my DM! (By which I mean send me an email: I would LOVE to see what you guys are coming up with!
