No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Balls

AS AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE I EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES

These no bake peanut butter chocolate chip balls taste just like a Reese’s peanut butter cup but made with all real food. They’re the perfect tasty snack when you’re craving a sweet treat!

This recipe for no bake peanut butter chocolate chip balls was originally posted in March of 2012. It was one of my very first ball recipes and I remember being totally baffled by the fact that I didn’t have to make snack bars in the shape of, well, bars back then.

Um, duh.

These no bake peanut butter chocolate chip balls taste just like a Reese's peanut butter cup but made with all real food. They're the perfect tasty snack when you're craving a sweet treat!

This recipe sparked an obsession with snacks rolled into the shape of balls that still lives on strong (I even have an ode to snack balls on pinterest) and when I sort of rediscovered it a few weeks back while browsing the archives on here, I knew it needed to be next in line for a makeover.

The photo skills of 2012 Gina were doing nothing to showcase how delicious these peanut butter chocolate chip balls are so I had to re-do them and give them the proper showcasing they deserve.

The video pretty much tells it all.

These are super easy, guys. Outside of the 30 minutes the dough spends setting up in the fridge, hands on time is a quick 5 minutes and you get snacks for the entire week (or half a week depending on how much you go to town on these delicious little bites).

No bake peanut butter chocolate chip balls are a healthy snack that work double duty as a sweet treat!

When I said they taste like a Reese’s peanut butter cup, I’m not even exaggerating.

The flavor is spot on.

With ingredients like oats, almond flour, flax seed, coconut flakes maple syrup and peanut butter though, you can feel a lot better about popping back a couple of these than the processed candy.

Made with oats, coconut and peanut butter, these no bake peanut butter chocolate chip balls are a tasty way to snack!

I’ve been on a kick lately of having small snack bites like these (raw brownie bites and whole wheat sweet potato banana muffins have also been on rotation) on hand at all times.

I don’t really know why it took me so long to embrace this whole meal prep phenomenon thing, but between cooking large amounts of protein on Sundays and making small, healthy snacks for the week, it’s made staying on top of my nutrition goals so much easier.

It was never hard per se, but being able to grab something pre-made as I run out the door to the gym every afternoon rather than adding up macros of 2-3 different things has really just simplified life.

Wholesome, real food ingredients are the secret behind these tasty no bake peanut butter chocolate chip balls. Perfect for snacking or satisfying that sweet tooth!

And when simple comes in the form of no bake peanut butter chocolate chip balls that taste just like one of my all time favorite chocolate candies, I think we can call that a win.

I just ran out of almond flour (and have no almonds in the house) but I have coconut flour - will that work?

I wouldn't suggest that swap. Coconut flour really isn't a good 1:1 substitution. It would work better with another nut flour.

Don't have the flax, can you just add more oats or almond flour?

Yep, that'll work just fine.

Is it instant oats???? And can you leave out the coconut

It's rolled oats and you can leave out the coconut but I'd replace it with something else otherwise your consistency will be off. More oats perhaps or something else you like with a similar texture.
