Healthy No Bake Brownie Bites – Halloween Theme

Healthy Brownie Bites - No Bake - Photo

Healthy No Bake Brownie Energy Bites made with pumpkin and sunflower seed butter for school safe lunchbox treats!   They only have 4 ingredients and come together in one bowl without a food processor. These bites are gluten free and vegan so they are great for a variety of diets!  As with many of my recipes this recipe is adaptable.

Adaptations for No Bake Healthy Brownie Energy Bites

  • Swap the oat flour for a paleo blend, coconut of almond flour and honey for maple syrup to make them paleo friendly (they are not school safe with a nut flour)
  • These are super yummy when made with peanut butter, but not school safe
  • You can use any seed or nut butter
  • They can be rolled into no bake cookies instead of balls

In the spirit of Halloween this week I thought it would be fun to roll them into witches hats and bats.

Roll the dough into a square and then cut cookies out as you would cut out sugar cookies.  Do this until all the dough is done.  I used medium cookie cutters here.

  • 1/2 cup seed butter I used 1/4 cup pumpkin seed butter & 1/4 cup sunflower seed butter
  • 1/4-1/3 cup cocoa powder 1/3 cup makes them extra fudgy
  • 1/3 cup oat flour
  • 3 TBS honey


  • Measure all ingredients into a bowl
  • Mix until throughly combined
  • Roll into balls using a small cookie scoop or for no bake “cookies” roll dough 1/4 inch thick into a square and cut out using desired cookie cutter (large cookie cutters are pictured above, but we like the small ones best)
  • Chill for 1 hour


  1. Any nut or seed butter will work in this recipe, but it won't be school safe if you use a nut butter.
  2. Maple Syrup can be used for honey.
  3. Coconut, Almond or a Paleo Flour Blend can be used but it will not be school safe.
