No-Bake Oatmeal Energy Balls

No-Bake Oatmeal Energy Balls

by Holly Foreman - July 25, 2017

I have joined an early morning bootcamp and was looking for a quick grab and go breakfast that I could eat on the way… the bootcamp starts at 5:15 a.m. and I am not much of a morning person.

I came across these 8 No-Bake Oatmeal Energy Balls, and I went to the store that day to get the ingredients. They are perfect for those on the move whether it is for breakfast, or an afternoon snack.

They are easy – but a little messy – to make, and they are delicious! So far, this one is my favorite!

Classic Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Energy Balls
1 cup dry oats (the post recommends 1/2 old fashioned oatmeal and 1/2 quick cooking)
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
dash of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla, optional

1. In a medium bowl, add all of the ingredients and stir to combine well. The mixture should be a bit sticky. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
2. Use a spoon to scoop about a tablespoon of the cookie ball mixture into your hand. Roll into a ball. Repeat with remaining mixture. This should make about 12 oatmeal energy balls.
3. Store the balls covered in the fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for much longer.

Just a side note, I used dark chocolate chips because dark chocolate is my favorite… and has health benefits!

Enjoy!
