Low-FODMAP No-Bake Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Energy Bites; Gluten-free, Vegan

Although this recipe has not been lab tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients (using available FODMAP data at posting)

Serves 12 (yields about 20-24 bites, depending on size)

Prep time: 20 minutes (10 minutes to prep, 10 minutes to roll balls)

Chill time: 30 min or longer

Total time: 50 minutes


  • 1 cup old fashioned oats, gluten-free
    • Can also use ½ cup oats and ½ cup cooked quinoa for a variation
  • 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes (unsweetened)
    • Can also use raw coconut
    • I prefer the flavor of toasted coconut so I toast the flakes at 300 F for about 5 minutes in the oven, stirring once
      • I toast all my baking ingredients in batches and keep toasted pecans, coconut and walnuts in my freezer to have on hand (I much prefer the deeper flavor this gives my cookies/cakes/etc or for sprinkling in low-FODMAP oatmeal and yogurt)
    • You may be able to buy pre-toasted coconut near you
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I use all-natural, no other added ingredients)
    • Can use salted, or unsalted based on your preference
  • 1/2 cup flax seed meal
    • You can buy this or grind your own using flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (dairy-free if available); miniature or regular size
    • Can substitute dried cranberries, raisins, pumpkin or sunflower seeds or combine more than one together
      • ½ cup is about 65 g of dried cranberries/raisins
        • This is about 5 low-FODMAP servings for raisins (one serving is 13 g)
        • This is about 4 low-FODMAP servings for cranberries (one serving is 15 g)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (if not added to your peanut butter)
  • Optional add ins:
    • 1 tablespoon chia seeds, hemp seeds or whole flax seeds
    • ½ teaspoon cinnamon


  • Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed
  • Cover and let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour
    • It will be sticky, chilling makes it easier to handle
  • Once chilled, roll into balls of about 1 inch diameter (a small cookie-scoop works well)
    • You can add additional maple syrup or peanut butter if needed
  • Store in sealed contained in refrigerator for about 2 weeks or freeze for longer

  • Low-FODMAP Oatmeal Chocolate Chip No Bake Energy Bites are delicious and so good for you!
