These healthy no-bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oat Bites are the perfect pick me up snack, breakfast on the go, or after dinner dessert!
Energy balls are a great snack for both adults and kids and a healthier alternative to store-bought energy bars/protein bars. They are also super budget-friendly as most likely you already have these ingredients in your cupboards.
I love making a big batch ahead of time to store in the fridge or freezer so they’re ready when you need them. Matt and I love grabbing these when we’re rushing out the door, or to pack some when we’re going for a hike or road trip.
These energy bites are loaded with wholesome ingredients like oats and flax seeds, packed full of protein, fibre and healthy fats. They are super simple to make, don’t require baking, are ready in less than 10 minutes. Plus, everything is combined in one bowl: which means less dishes to wash for Mr. Matt!
The best part about this snack is that it’s super versatile. You can swap the peanut butter for any nut butter you like, and if you want to make these school friendly than use sunflower butter. If chocolate chips aren’t your jam, you can use raisins or carob chips. If you’re out of flax seeds, use ground chia seeds, and swap the cinnamon for a couple of tablespoons of raw cacao for an extra chocolate-y taste!
