Oatmeal Peanut Butter Energy Bites

It’s good to have sweet snacks on hand that are healthy and satisfying, like these Oatmeal Peanut Butter Energy Balls. They hit the spot, are filling and full of good stuff. And we almost forgot – they’re gluten-free too.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Energy Balls with chocolate

This recipe lends itself to endless variations. You could use different nut or seed butters (try almond or sunflower seed) and change up the quantities of chia, flax meal and hemp, all depending on what you have in the cupboard. Another option is to swap the honey for maple syrup if you’d like a brighter sweet flavour.

To make these school friendly, substitute sunflower seed butter for the peanut butter.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Energy Balls will last for a week in the fridge.

    This is a great recipe; it’s a nice change from my standard protein ball recipe. The mix of honey and molasses gave it a lovely flavour.
    Thanks,

    Love energy bites as a quick grab and go. This recipe sounds good; will try it this weekend. Great for snowshoeing and other outdoor activites.
    Thanks,
