Peanut Butter Energy Bites – Easy and No Baking Required
If you're looking for a quick snack to make for your family – these Peanut Butter Energy Bites might be just the ticket!
They are so simple to make, and are such a great snack when you're in a hurry. With oats and peanut butter as the star, they're fairly healthy. PLUS you can easily adapt the recipe with a few added ingredients (anyone for mini chocolate chips?).
An additional plus is that they are no bake. You can whip these up easily for any season and you don't even have to turn on your oven.
Ingredients for Peanut Butter Energy Bites:
- peanut butter
- flaxseed meal
- chocolate or peanut butter chips
- any other add ins you might want
The flax seeds and quick oats (you can use rolled oats too!) are great additions for fiber. The shredded coconut could be left out if you don't like coconut. If you don't have flaxseed meal, you could add in hemp seed or chia seed.
Feel free to add in your favorite protein powder too.
One of the reasons I love this recipe is that it is SO customizable. Plus, it's a healthy snack that you can whip up in less than 30 minutes.
Can I make these no bake energy balls without peanut butter?
You can absolutely use a different nut butter, almond butter, or sunflower butter instead of the creamy peanut butter (or give peanut butter honey a try!).
If you prefer a smoother texture, you could also blend this all together in a food processor rather than mixing by hand.
How long do these no bake energy bites last?
Since these no bake bites don't have any dairy or milk products, they can last up to two weeks. If you prefer to keep them in the freezer, you can store them up to 3 months!
