Want a snack for your children to enjoy when they get home from school? These No Bake Oatmeal Energy Bites is just what you need with only 5 ingredients! Sweet honey, creamy chocolate chips and peanut butter come together for a snack the family will enjoy.
This snack is perfect for the combination of sweet and filling. No Bake Oatmeal Energy Bites have only 5 ingredients but are versatile for you to add your family favorites to them. What a great alternative to candy or chips!
Your Ingredient List:
- 2 Cups Old Fashioned Oats
- ¾ Cup Crunchy Peanut Butter
- ¼ Cup Honey
- ¼ Cup Slivered Almonds
- ½ Cup Chocolate Chips
It is important to use old fashioned oats instead of quick oats. The energy bites will hold together better.
The peanut butter can be crunchy or creamy, but the crunchy does add a little more texture to the bites.
With almonds, peanut butter and oatmeal in them, they are healthy and packed full of energy boosters. The kids enjoy them because they are so flavorful. I like them because they are a healthier choice for the kids.
In fact, my husband used these bites for marathon training. I would make up a batch and set them on the mailbox and he would run by and grab them every so many miles.

Mixing the ingredients
To mix the ingredients, mix together the oats, peanut butter and honey and blend well.
Then mix in the almonds and chocolate chips.
Rolling out the energy bites
When rolling the energy bites into balls, they will need to be placed on waxed paper or parchment paper. I like to put the paper on a baking sheet, then put the energy bites on the baking sheet.
Doing this, it makes it easier to put the whole thing in the refrigerator.
Great additions to the bites would be:
~Peanut butter chips
It is better to keep these bites in the fridge. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
Pin for later!
Adding these bites to your snack list will be a welcome change in your house. Simple, sweet and a healthier choice for your family.
