Just 5 ingredients are all you need to make these delicious and simple peanut butter oatmeal energy balls! They’re completely no-bake and ready in under 20 minutes – plus only one bowl required.


  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds OR ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (or any nut butter)*
  • 3 tbsp raw honey
  • 2–3 tbsp non-dairy milk
  • optional: 1/4 cup chopped chocolate or mini chocolate chips


  1. In a large bowl combine rolled oats, chia seeds (or flaxseed), peanut butter, honey and optional chocolate chips.
  2. Add in 2 tablespoons of non-dairy milk and mix until batter is well coated. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes to allow oats and chia/flax to absorb some liquid. If batter is too dry add in another tablespoon of non-dairy milk.
  3. Once batter is thick but sticky use your hands to roll it into golf ball sized balls.
  4. Should yield about 15 energy balls.
  5. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes to harden then move to refrigerator for long-term storage.
  6. Will last up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator.
