No-bake peanut butter balls

No-bake peanut butter balls are a delightful and easy-to-make treat that requires no oven time. These bite-sized goodies are perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth or providing a quick energy boost. Made with a combination of peanut butter, oats, and other delicious ingredients, these no-bake peanut butter balls are a favorite among both kids and adults. Get ready to indulge in the delectable world of no-bake peanut butter balls!

To make these scrumptious, no-bake peanut butter balls, you'll need the following essential ingredients:

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Here are a few optional ingredients you can include:

  • Chopped nuts, such as almonds or walnuts
  • Shredded coconut
  • Dried fruit, like cranberries or raisins
  • A drizzle of melted chocolate on top for added decadence
  • Dust with sugar-free powdered sugar or regular powdered sugar.


In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup creamy peanut butter, 2 cups rolled oats, 1/2 cup honey, 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional), 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and any of the optional ingredients that you desire.


Stir everything together until it is well combined and the mixture holds together.


Take small portions of the mixture and roll them into balls between the palms of your hands. Place the balls on a lined baking tray and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to firm up.

Serve and enjoy!

Now that you've made your delectable no-bake peanut butter balls, you'll want to store them to keep them fresh and tasty. Here's how:

Place the no-bake peanut butter balls in an airtight container or Ziploc bag to prevent them from drying out.


Keep them refrigerated to maintain their shape and texture. They can last for up to two weeks in the fridge.


If you're planning to store them for a longer period, freezing is your best bet. Just freeze the balls in a single layer on a baking sheet, then transfer them to a freezer-safe container or bag. They can be stored in the freezer for up to three months.


Happy Holidays!

She is an animal rescuer, food critic, organic gardener, food editor, home cook, food blogger, artist, and a complete do-it-yourselfer. Gin Lee is a published author, journalist, and contributor, among other works, and she resides in a rural town in Arkansas with her husband and their fur babies, Highway, Princess, and Stinkpot the turtle. A huge thanks goes out to all for reading, following, and sharing Gin Lee's articles! Thank you! Since Gin Lee lives in a rural area, there's not much local news to cover. So, she covers articles of interest on how-to's about organic gardening, recipes, homesteading, and survival techniques. If those things are of interest to you, then you'll never (hopefully) be disappointed. She tries to cover a wide variety of articles to entertain everyone. Comments are turned off due to rudeness and hatefulness. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. Gin Lee does have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Apologies go out to those of you who generally are very sweet and also to Gin Lee's followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. Hopefully, you'll be understanding of the measures that have to be put into place. Please be kind to one another.
