How to Make Peanut Butter Oatmeal Balls

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Balls Ingredients in glass mixing bowl.

Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Add old-fashioned oats, peanut butter, honey, coconut flakes and mini chocolate chips to a large mixing bowl and mix until everything is combined well. Cover with a lid and put in refrigerator for one hour.

Scoop out a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball and place on your prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all the dough has been used.

You can use a cookie scoop to make the balls a consistent size.

Recipe Substitutions And Additions

  • You could add ground Flax seeds, Chia seeds, hemp seeds or Wheat bran.
  • Try mini dark chocolate chips, semi-chocolate chips or white chocolate chips.
  • Use almond butter or sunflower butter instead of peanut butter.
  • Raisins or Craisins are great additions to this recipe.

How To Store

Refrigerator: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Freezer: Store in the freezer for up to 3 months. I recommend freezing them in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for two hours to avoid them freezing in a clump and then transfer them to an air tight container or freezer-safe bag.
