I try to always have a stash of these no-bake chocolate chip peanut butter energy bites in my refrigerator, because they are a great “pick-me-up” when my energy levels get low. My toddler loves them as a snack, too! You can choose any nut butter you like to replace the peanut butter. These little bites are packed with energy-boosting ingredients, like oats, honey, chocolate and peanut butter. I add flax seeds and hemp seeds for extra healthy fats and protein. They are a great snack before your workout since they aren’t too filling, but give you a nice energy boost!
My favorite thing about these no-bake peanut butter balls is how quick and easy they are to make. I can literally throw these together in under 15 minutes. Play around with the consistency by adding more or less peanut butter and honey.
No Bake Chocolate Chip Energy Balls
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup ground flax seeds
- 1 tbsp hulled hemp seeds
- Mix all ingredients together well in a mixing bowl.
- Form 1-inch balls with your hands. If the dough is too creamy, chill in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour before forming.
