Hazelnut Coffee Energy Bites

Hazelnut Coffee Energy Bites.  I love hazelnuts.  I love coffee.  So I decided to put them together to make these Hazelnut Energy Bites.

You guys! These are super delicious and very easy to make.  I got some coffee extract the other day and I made some Coffee Chocolate Oatmeal Bites.

Those were delicious, but I knew I wanted to make some sort of no bake treat with it as well.  That is how these Hazelnut Coffee Energy Bites came about.

We are still prepping for our upcoming kitchen renovation and trying to use up what we have in the pantry.  I just happened to have a bag of hazelnuts that needed to be used.

  1. Coffee extract? I've never seen this...is it a specialty item? Does it have caffeine? Could I just use some strongly brewed coffee?? Thanks for the answers! :)
    1. I could only find it on Amazon. Here is the link if you want to check it out. http://tinyurl.com/lr9zacl You could probably use instant coffee grounds, but I am not sure if brewed coffee will work in this particular recipe.
  2. sound yummy! Hazlenut is my favorite coffee or latte flavor. I wonder if some espresso powder would work? I know extra energy, but I have that on hand.
    1. I made them with Medaglia D'Oro Instant Espresso Coffee powder and they were AWESOME! BEST treat I've made from your website so far, Melissa--frikkin' delish. Brought them to a house-moving event & they were scarfed up in no time!
  3. I love your no bake bites, so easy and delicious and perfect when I need a little something to satisfy my sweet tooth. I can't wait to try these. I love hazelnut and coffee! Have you seen the "Hail Merry" macaroons? I tried some over the weekend and immediately thought of you. Any chance there is a copy cat recipe in the future? http://www.hailmerry.com/macaroons
  4. I made these last night using almonds and sunflower seeds. I did not have the coffee extract, so I put espresso powder into vanilla extract. YUM! Thanks for the inspiration!
  5. I'm late to the party. To keep these paleo/Whole 30, can I skip the chocolate chips? Maybe add some ground vanilla beans? The espresso powder would probably have to replace the coffee extract if it can nations alcohol. Thanks for any tips you can provide!
  6. I made these last night. Delicious! They taste just like those Ferrero Rocher chocolates in the gold foil! I also tried them last week, but I used macadamia nuts because I didn't have hazelnuts. Also super yummy! Thank you for a wonderful recipe!!
