Honey Peanut Butter Bites

Peanut butter and honey bites.

With Labor Day around the corner, I thought I’d share an easy pick-me-up snack I’ve been making! I used a few “protein ball” recipes as starting inspiration and then experimented until I came up with exactly what I was searching for.

These guys are small but substantial, and hardly use any ingredients. I store them in the fridge and grab ’em and go! (And the kiddos love them too.) I’m going to make a batch to bring to a Labor Day get together, and thought I’d share!

Peanut butter and honey bites.


Honey Peanut Butter Bites

2 Cups Oats (to blitz, plus some to sprinkle in whole)
1/2 Cups Dark Chocolate Chips or Chunks (to blitz)
3/4 Cups Peanut Butter
1/3 Cup Honey
Spices (you pick! Ex: cinnamon, pumpkin spice, nutmeg, etc.)


  • use 1/4 cup of honey for less sweet and less sticky bites. I make both options depending how I feel that day.
  • Use white chocolate or milk chocolate chips.
  • Add dried cranberries, raisins, etc.


  • Blitz the oats in a food processor. You can blitz to a fine powder, or stop while there are still small pieces of oats visible. Personal Preference! Set aside oats.
  • Blitz chocolate chips into a fine crumble in food processor. I aim for a proper crumble, where the chocolate forms uniform, small clumps. Again, personal preference!
  • Pour blitzed oats and chocolate crumble into mixing bowl and add peanut butter and honey. Mix on medium-high speed for 4–5 minutes, until fully combined (will still appear crumbly, but should hold its shape if squeezed into a ball).
  • Sprinkle in a handful or two of whole, un-blitzed oats for texture, and add a few dashes of any spices you’d like. Mix until combined.
  • Spoon into small, bite-sized balls and store in the fridge. (I’ve had no problem stacking these atop one another, as they solidify in the fridge).

    These sound so delicious! I make something similar but I use dates instead of honey and coat it with grated coconut. It’s such a yum treat and a healthy snack.

      Ohhh dates would be great! Do you just chop ‘em up or leave en in bigger chunks? That sounds like an awesome combo!

    No bake snacks in the summertime are the best! Thanks!
