Oatmeal Energy Balls require only 4 ingredients! Quick oats, peanut butter, honey, and mini chocolate chips are all you need for these perfect snack-sized energy oatmeal balls.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups quick oats

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter

  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

  • 1/2 cup honey

Directions

  • Combine all ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir together until well combined. You can either stir by hand with a wooden spoon or spatula OR use a handmixer and beat on LOW speed until combined. Increasing speed as needed.
  • The mixture is thick so it will take a few minutes to fully mix it all together.
  • Roll into balls. I use a small cookie scoop to get even sized energy balls, which holds about 1 tablespoon of the energy ball dough.
  • TIP : If you are having difficulty getting the mixture to roll into a ball, try pressing the energy ball dough between your fingers (to loosen it up/warm it up) and then roll into a ball.
  • TIP : If the energy ball dough is too sticky, which it will be naturally as there is honey in it, try refrigerting for about 20 minutes to see if that helps.
  • Eat right away or you can refrigerate for a couple of hours if you want to serve them cold. I think they’re best tasting when they are cold so I always make them before I need them (like for after school) so they have time to refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge, in a covered container, for several days.

Notes

  • HONEY : To make measuring honey easy, spray the measuring cup with cooking spray before adding the honey. When you pour it into the bowl the honey will slide right out!
  • PEANUT BUTTER : It’s best to use regular peanut butter because it has more oil, fat, and it’s softer, which will hold together well without drying out the energy ball dough. Lots of people seem to have trouble with this recipe and I can almost guarantee it’s because they are using the all-natural peanut butter instead of the regular peanut butter.
