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!
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!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Snack Bites
- 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.
