    No-bake chocolate peanut butter oat snack bites are the perfect on-the-go snack for busy lives!

    Is it weird that I’m jumping on board with these oat snack balls late? I don’t think so because apparently I’m just always late to the game with everything and becoming entirely obsessed with them after everyone has been obsessed. It’s okay, though, these no-bake chocolate peanut butter oat snack bites are worth being late to the game. I mean, Reese’s spread as a base? Oh my goodness, you’re in for a treat!

    Every day that we come home from work, I’m literally rushing around trying to get ready and out the door to get to my barre class on time. 90% of the time I’m starving and haven’t had a proper snack before jetting out the door. So I’m usually stuck in class with a grumbling stomach and I come home to an even angrier stomach. These snack bites have saved my life the past couple weeks. I really honestly don’t know why it took me so long to get on board with these. They’re the perfect size to take on the go and they’re super easy to make. I’ve actually started keeping a stash of them on hand because I feel like I’m always running out the door to some fitness thing. Whether it be barre on weeknights or SoulCycle on weekends. I grab a couple of these bites and put them in a sandwich bag and head out the door! Super convenient and filling :) no more grumbling tummy in class!

    No-bake chocolate peanut butter oat snack bites are the perfect on-the-go snack for busy lives!

    So, as you can see, it seems like I have a pretty hectic after-work life. You’re going to want to grab the ingredients to make these no-bake chocolate peanut butter oat snack bites ASAP. They won’t last very long cause they’re somewhat addicting! I love that you have the Reese’s taste but also have the loaded oats (both a mixture of rolled oats and quick oats) along with dried cranberries and chia seeds!

    • 1 cup rolled oats
    • 1/2 cup plain quick oats
    • 1/2 cup REESE'S® Spread, or similar
    • 1/3 cup honey
    • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
    • 2 tablespoons chia seeds


    • In a large bowl, mix everything together with a wooden spoon or spatula. If it gets too tough to mix together, use your hands!
    • Using a small cookie scoop, scoop mixture into palm of your hands and roll into a ball. Place rolled ball on a plate or wax paper. Repeat until all the mixture has been used up.
    • You can store the oat bites in an airtight container on the counter for up to 5 days. They can last a bit longer if it's stored in the fridge, but since they don't last very long in our house, we keep them out on the counter.

    I LOVE that you jumped on board with these! I love snack bites for a quick, pop-able healthy snack. And adding peanut butter and chocolate to anything is ALWAYS a winner of an idea. Pinned!

  • Kevin @ Closet Cooking says:

    So nice and easy and I like that they are no bake!

    I have been all about the snack bites lately too. They are so darn poppable and healthy. Love the chia in here too!

    The perfect quick energy snack! Our family has been making these for years, but I like your version with dried cranberries. Thanks for sharing, Julie!

  • Jodie says:

    Love that you used Reese’s spread! We have already gone through one jar just eating it on cookies/crackers/ice cream (or by itself!) Excited to be able to use it in a new way.

    I am so into these Julie- a great combo of flavors!!

    Yum! I’ll take 15 bites please! ;)

    These sound so awesome! I’ve been making similar ones with regular peanut butter… I found that using my stand mixer makes it super easy to mix these together! Just a tip :)

  • Jess says:

    You had me at Reese’s…

  • Matea says:

    I definitely have the grumbling-tummy issue, too–especially during a test, of course. Seeing how simple these are to make, I’m pretty sure these bites will solve that problem in no time! Thanks for sharing!

  • Rachel says:

    these look like such a great, easy snack! i’ve really been wanting to try the reese’s spread…however, that could be a dangerous situation for me :)

  • Laura (Tutti Dolci) says:

    These bites look like the perfect snack and I must find that Reese’s spread!

  • audra says:

    Obit a month ago you had some kind of ore treats. I can’t find I (I know have all ingredients).PLEASE republish it. I’m hungry!!!

    • Julie says:

      I’m not sure which treat you’re talking about. You can use the search above or you can use the drop down by month on the right side.

  • Lauren (The Golden Graham Girl) says:

    Please help – I’m confused! Does the recipe call for BOTH 1 cup of rolled oats AND 1/2 cup quick oats? (Total 1.5 cups oats)? I thought for some reason the Pin only mentioned the latter…thanks!

    • Julie says:

      Yes, it calls for BOTH. 1 cup of rolled oats AND 1/2 cup of quick oats. Total = 1.5 cups oats. Pin details are usually not correct so I would not follow those in the future and follow the recipe :)

  • Potato says:

    Can I replace Reese spread with anything else?
    I live in Singapore and I can’t find it in any supermarket
