No bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Balls! They are packed full of nourishing oats, peanut butter, protein powder, and are sweetened with maple syrup! They make the perfect healthy snack or after-dinner treat!
More often than not, I really don’t want to spend any extra time in the kitchen when I’m not creating recipes for the blog. So when I want a treat for the week, I typically opt for something that is quick and painless, minimal ingredient, and something I don’t have to turn the oven on for – especially during the summer months. So these tick all the boxes baby! They’re also so pretty! You can watch the video here!
What’s in these Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Balls:
Rolled Oat: Rolled oat are the star of the show here. I have other ball recipes you can try if you can’t or don’t consume oats!
Peanut Butter: You can sub any nut or seed butter here!
Maple syrup: Any sticky sweetener will work. This adds sweetness to the recipe, while also acting as a binder, holding everything together. Maple syrup also contains some antioxidants so I really like using it as a sweetener!
Protein Powder: You can sub in oat flour, but the protein powder adds a great flavor to the recipe while also adding in satiating protein, helping keep you fuller for longer! I love Macro Mike for their flavor range – they’re all incredible. You can use code “amb-dani” for a discount.
Coconut oil: This helps the recipe stay firm when frozen. You can sub any neutral oil or butter.
Chocolate: For coating! I always opt for Hu Kitchen to keep things refined sugar free. You can use “danishealthyeats” for a discount!
How to make the balls:
They couldn’t be simpler:
- Mix together the ingredients.
- Roll into balls.
- Freeze for a bit to firm up.
- Melt the chocolate. Dip each ball.
- Return to the freezer to set.
How to store the peanut butter oatmeal balls:
You’ll want to store these in an air-tight container in the freezer. The texture of them right from the freezer is amazing!
What if my mixture is too dry? There are two options. You can taste the mixture and if you think it could use a little more sweetness, add another splash of maple syrup. If it is sweet enough, add a splash of milk, mix, and repeat as needed until you reach a stickier dough consistency!
Can you make different variations of this recipe? Yes, of course! You can add in any mix-ins you prefer! Raisins, chocolate chips, or even chopped nuts would be great!
