Honey and Oatmeal Energy Bites


A perfect snack for those on the go!



  • ½ cup honey 
  • 1 ½ cups old-fashioned or quick oatmeal 
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter 
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds 
  • ½ cup unsalted peanuts, crushed 
  • ½ cup mini dark chocolate chips 


Combine honey, oatmeal, peanut butter, vanilla extract and chia seeds together in large bowl 

Once thoroughly mixed, roll mixture into 18 small balls 

Combine chopped peanuts and mini chocolate chips in a shallow bowl or plate. Roll each ball in the mixture to coat the outside. 

The finished product does not need to be refrigerated, but store it in an air-tight container to prevent it from drying out. Eat within 7-10 days for the best quality. The energy balls may be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
