About this recipe: There are lots of different versions of energy balls or natural snacks out there but I prefer to make my own. That way I can avoid processed sugars but I don't have to suppress my cravings for peanut butter and chocolate! These bites are egg free, dairy free and gluten free if you use gluten free oats. Enjoy!
Try maple syrup in place of honey for a slightly different taste or a vegan version.
You can drop the mixture by the spoonful onto greaseproof paper; let them cool slightly, then roll into balls using the palm of your hand if you like.
Tasted amazing! If you want to have higher nutritional value, skip the stove step and just mix it all up in a bowl and after dropping on wax paper, put it in the freezer! My family loved it! - 13 Jun 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My mom and I made the original no-bake cookies many times while I was growing up. I always loved them, but I haven't made them in a long, long time. When I came across this recipe, I decided to give it a try and see if they were as good as what I remember the originals to be. We loved this recipe. It's not too sweet. I used a little less than a cup of honey which was perfect for our tastes. I also added a couple tablespoons ground flaxseed meal, and I doubled the vanilla. I used natural crunchy peanut butter. The texture is softer than the original, but they set just fine. The texture is great...creamy and a little chewy from the oats. This one's a keeper for us. I think it would work great with agave or brown rice syrup, too. - 11 Mar 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I liked that these were healthier than the regular no bake cookies. I have heard so much about the health benefits of coconut oil but this was the first time that I had used it in a recipe. These were quick and easy to make! Thanks for sharing your recipe. - 08 Feb 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
