I love a good quick and easy recipe that also happens to be no-bake and healthy. Bonus points if it includes chocolate and peanut butter, too!

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bites are just that. They are chewy and fudgy, chocolate-y rich, and loaded with peanut butter flavour. I’ve also threw in some desiccated coconut for added chew and flavour – YUM.

If you love chocolate, peanut butter, and coconut, you are gonna love these energy balls. They are the perfect indulgent snacks to enjoy when you’re craving chocolate!

How to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bites

Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these bites. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.

  • 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.

The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
