These Peanut Butter Oatmeal energy bites are no-bake, easy and portable. Made with healthy fats, fiber, and protein all rolled up into a delicious snack.
I admit that I am a snacker! Sometimes it is hard to pick something that is filling and delicious but today's recipe is both.
I do have some other energy bites on the blog like these Monster ones made with mini M&Ms. If you like coconut, be sure to check out these Raspberry Coconut bites are well.
- rolled oats
- chocolate chips
- peanut butter
- chia seeds
Please see recipe card for quantities
Use a large bowl for all the ingredients.
Use a spoon or spatula to combine and place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes (to make rolling easier).
Use about a one tablespoon scoop to get mixture and roll into balls with your hands.
- Oats - I only had on hand quick oats but old-fashioned would work as well
- Sweetener - maple syrup or agave syrup
- Mix-ins - raisins, craisins, white chocolate chips, nuts, coconut
- Nut Butter - almond butter or even crunchy peanut butter
These Peanut Butter Oatmeal Energy Bites will last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator and about 3 months in a freezer. Be sure to use an airtight container.
I recommend placing mixture into refrigerator for about 30 minutes to make it easier for rolling. You could also try to wet your hands a bit too if a little sticky.
I haven't tried this but you could also press the entire mixture into a pan, place in refrigerator for the 30 minutes and cut into bars.
These would also make a great after school snack for the kiddos!

Chia seeds can be part of a healthy diet and I have really enjoyed eating chia pudding every morning for breakfast with fresh fruit. I find it very filling.
