Peanut Butter Energy Balls
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.
Are These Peanut Butter Energy Balls No-Bake?
Yes, these 5-ingredient peanut butter energy balls are no-bake and easy to make with ingredients you probably have on hand, like oats and peanut butter. Simply combine all the ingredients in a bowl, stir well and roll the mixture into balls.
Can I Swap in a Different Nut Butter?
Of course! Make sure you use a nut butter labeled "natural" and confirm that the ingredients are just nuts and salt (or no salt). Feel free to experiment with different mix-ins—for example, dried fruit or chopped nuts—in place of the chocolate chips and coconut.
Additional reporting by Jan Valdez
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.
