  • In a large bowl, using a wooden spoon, stir together the oats, peanut butter, chocolate chips, maple syrup, vanilla and salt until combined.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Taking small handfuls of the mixture, roll them into small balls 1-2 inches in size. Or you can use a cookie scoop. Place them onto the baking sheet.
  • Refrigerate the bites for 30 minutes or until solid. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge (they will last at least 1 week, and likely 2!)


Top tips for making No Bake Peanut Butter Balls
  • Use a cookie scoop to get the balls all the same size.
  • If you or someone in your family is gluten intolerant, be sure to use gluten free oats.
  • This is such an easy recipe for kids to make - get them in the kitchen!
  • If you don't have peanut butter, try almond butter as a 1:1 substitute. Other nut butters should work as well, but the bites might have a slightly different consistency since some nuts create "more thin" butters than others!
  • If you want to make these truly sugar free, you can omit the maple syrup and they will still taste pretty good :)
  • Store the bites in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks!
