“These healthy peanut butter and chocolate energy balls deliver a mixture of simple and complex carbohydrates to help fuel you up whenever you need a little boost. They're no-bake and easy to make with ingredients you probably have on hand, like oats and nut butter. Feel free to experiment with different mix-ins—for example, dried fruit or chopped nuts—in place of the chocolate chips and coconut.”

Ingredients

    • 2 cups rolled oats (see Tip)
    • 1 cup natural peanut butter or other nut butter
    • ½ cup honey
    • ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
    • ¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Directions

  • 1 Combine oats, peanut butter (or other nut butter), honey, chocolate chips and coconut in a medium bowl; stir well. Using a 1-tablespoon measure, roll the mixture into balls. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
  • To make ahead: Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in the freezer.
