Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Snack Bites (No Bake + Can Be Made Into Bars)

These No-Bake Bites are healthy, SO EASY, yummy AND can be served up as a great snack or simple after-dinner dessert.

We came up with the idea to throw these together when we were writing our post on 70+ Simple Snack Ideas for Kids or Adults. Now our family can’t get enough of them! We often make a double batch so we can keep a supply in the freezer.

We’ve discovered that these little balls of goodness don’t just serve as a great snack, one or two of them go great as a side to a breakfast smoothie. And if we eat a light dinner, like a salad, they serve as a delicious after-dinner dessert.

How to choose a healthy peanut butter:

Because so many nut butters are made with an array of not-so-great (highly processed) ingredients, it can be difficult to determine which nut butters are minimally processed and good for you, in moderation of course. That’s why we decided to head to the grocery store to do a little investigating and write this blog post that breaks down The Dirty Truth About Grocery Store Nut Butter!

For all you creamy, or crunchy, nut butter loving friends out there, you’ll want to read this before grabbing that next jar of Jif and making this recipe!

Can I make my Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Snack Bites into bars?

Yes, you can press the dough into a parchment-lined baking sheet and cut into bars as an alternative to balls.

Kid-friendly and great for school lunches

These snack bites are great for school lunches. Pull a few out of the freezer in the morning, put them in your kiddo’s lunchbox and they’ll be thawed by the time they’re ready to eat!

A great pre/post-workout snack

One or two of these bites doubles as a delicious pre/post-workout snack. Nuts are a great source of protein and healthy fat. Oats and flax meal are easy-to-digest carbs that power you up without weighing you down.

Description

Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together.
  2. Cover and chill dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. (If you’re tight on time and don’t have time to refrigerate, wet your hands before rolling dough into small balls to prevent it from sticking to your hands.)
  3. Remove dough from the refrigerator and roll into small balls, about an inch in diameter. (Wet your hands intermittently to prevent dough from sticking to your hands.)
  4. Store in an airtight container and chill at least 2 hours before serving. Keep in refrigerator for up to 1 week or store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Keep chilled until serving. Otherwise, they may get a tad sticky.

Notes

Depending on how runny your nut butter is, you may have to slightly adjust the ratio. We use nut butter that has a thick, creamy consistency. If your nut butter tends to be runny, start with one-third cup of nut butter and add more if necessary.

For a gluten-free option, use gluten-free oats.

We recommend organic ingredients when feasible.

Always check for FfL-friendly ingredients.
