In under 10 minutes, you can have these chocolate no bake peanut butter balls ready to go for your weekly snack. Best part? There are no dates or food processors involved so you can make these no bake energy balls in no time.
These balls are great options for snacks around your workouts! However, I would not recommend eating too many of these as just a snack during the day since they are not low in calories. They are mostly made of nice, healthy ingredients and will definitely give you some good energy for exercising that day! You may also add Chocolate Protein Powder to this recipe if you would like to get some extra protein.
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: None!
Serving Size: 1 ball
1 cup rolled oatmeal
1/4 cup all natural peanut butter*
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
pinch of salt
In a medium-size bowl, mix together all ingredients.*
Then wet hands. Use a tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop out dough and roll between your palms to form balls.
Store in the fridge for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Add Chocolate Protein Powder to add Protein if desired. Start with just a scoop and add more as needed. The texture may change the more you add of course.
For this recipe, make sure you use drippy peanut butter. The moisture in the oils will help these balls form!
Option to place all ingredients in a food processor and process until a dough is formed. Some like to do this for easier digestion!
If your dough is a little too dry, add more honey.
