How to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bites
Ingredients you’ll need:
- Rolled oats: You can also use quick porridge oats too.
- Crunchy peanut butter: You can use smooth peanut butter, but I love the added crunch.
- Honey, maple syrup, or agave: For added sweetness.
- Vanilla extract
- Desiccated coconut: OR shredded OR flaked coconut. If using shredded or flaked coconut, be sure to pulse it in a food processor to break it down – this will help create more tight, compact balls. No need to do this with desiccated coconut.
- Unsweetened cocoa powder: I use Dr. Oetker Fine Dark Cocoa Powder.
- Chocolate chips: You can use dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips.
To make these energy balls, simply grab a large mixing bowl, and mix together the oats, peanut butter, honey, vanilla, coconut, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips until completely combined.
The mixture may be a little too sticky to roll into balls, so refrigerate until firm enough – about 30 minutes.
Once chilled, roll the dough into 1oz balls. If the mixture is still sticky, you can dampen your hands to make the rolling process easier.
Refrigerate or freeze once again to allow them to firm up before eating.
