Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Energy Bites

I am a morning person but by 3 PM in the afternoon, I am craving a nap.  These peanut butter oatmeal energy biteswere my attempt at powering through my week without resorting to pots full of coffee.  Since my pumpkin energy bites were so delicious, I decided that this easy no-bake treat would be a healthy and delicious way to satisfy my sweet tooth without the guilt! Snacking on cookies is delicious but not the healthiest choice on a daily basis, right?

These peanut butter oatmeal energy bites are made with only 5 ingredients: peanut butter, old-fashioned oats, flax seed, honey and chocolate chips.  They take less than 10 minutes to make, although you will have to chill the batter a bit to make them easier to roll.  This is also a relatively flexible recipe.  Feel free to substitute almond butter and cranberries or cashew butter and white chocolate chips.  You can also vary the type of liquid sweetener you use.  Choose agave nectar if you want a vegan snack! They will be delicious, no matter which combination that you choose!

Comments

  1. We can't do peanut butter because of an allergy, but these look great! We'll use sunflower seed butter or pumpkin seed butter! Great recipe. Thanks for sharing! <3
    • those would definitely be easy substitutes! I have been eating this for a quick breakfast for the last few days and they are delicious!
  2. The recipe looks easy! I must try sometime for my kids and husband. Thanks for sharing!
