Just 5 ingredients are all you need to make these delicious and simple peanut butter oatmeal energy balls! They’re completely no-bake and ready in under 20 minutes – plus only one bowl required.

There’s so much you guys don’t see behind-the-scenes in running a blog. This is probably for the best because it’s not all that interesting and most of the time is too technical for my own understanding. What you see is the finished product, which is obviously the best (and most delicious!) part. But there is a lot that has to happen to end up with a recipe for peanut butter oatmeal energy balls. Besides the whole recipe ideation, testing, photography and writing, there’s the not-so-fun tasks that come with running a website

In the last month most of my time has been focused on this stuff. A few weeks ago THM was hacked, which really forced me to deal with some of the stuff I’d lagged behind on. It’s also caused me to look into all of my old content and recipes and assess what’s really serving you guys.

The one thing that’s become certain: I have more energy balls than any other kind of recipe and all of them 100% serve you (and me!). Who doesn’t love a good energy ball? They’re easy, portable and in cases like these peanut butter oatmeal energy balls they’re made in one bowl with 5 ingredients.

These energy balls make up for the headache of dealing with backend web stuff! Let’s get into the recipe…

Here’s What You Need

Rolled oats – I like regular rolled oats. You can get away with using quick cook oats if that’s what you have. Just don’t use steel-cut as you won’t be able to bite through them!

Chia seeds OR Ground flaxseeds – Either one of these works. They’re essential for helping to bind these energy balls together since they’re both super absorbent.

Natural Peanut Butter – Go for the natural kind as the oils help these peanut butter oatmeal energy balls hold shape. They also help you to control the amount of sugar.

Raw Honey – This is for sweetness but also for binding. If you don’t have honey you can use date syrup or coconut syrup. Do not use maple syrup as it isn’t sticky enough to bind and they will fall apart

Non-Dairy Milk – any milk will do. You can also use water if you don’t have any. These make a pretty dry batter so the non-dairy milk will help you get the better moving so you can roll it into balls.

Optional: Chopped Chocolate – I like adding in chopped chocolate for a peanut butter cup flavor. Alternatively you can melt it in the microwave and drizzle over top…Or both!

How to Make Peanut Butter Oatmeal Energy Balls

These no-bake energy balls are actually super easy to make and can be done entirely in one bowl! Here are my step-by-step instructions:

STEP 1: In a large bowl combine rolled oats, chia seeds (or flaxseed), peanut butter, honey and optional chocolate chips. Add in 2 tablespoons of non-dairy milk and mix until batter is well coated. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes to allow oats and chia/flax to absorb some liquid. If batter is too dry add in another tablespoon of non-dairy milk.

STEP 2: Once batter is thick but sticky use your hands to roll it into golf ball sized balls. Should yield about 15 energy balls. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes to harden then move to refrigerator for long-term storage.

How Long Will These No-Bake Energy Balls Last?

These peanut butter oatmeal energy balls will last in the fridge for up to 3 weeks…however good luck getting them to last that long!
