5 Ingredient Peanut Butter Energy Bites

No Bake 5 Ingredient Peanut Butter Energy Bites. Loaded with old fashioned oats, peanut butter and flax seeds. A healthy protein packed breakfast or snack!

5 Ingredient Peanut Butter Energy Bites | chefsavvy.com #recipe #oats #protein #healthy

These energy bites are no bake, super easy to make and take less than 10 minutes to put together. Loaded with protein, fiber and healthy fats to keep you full and loaded with energy throughout the day. Made with only 5 ingredients: peanut butter, old fashioned oats, flax seed, honey and chocolate chips. Everything gets combined in one bowl. Best of all you never have to turn on the oven.

It’s hard to believe these 5 Ingredient Peanut Butter Bites are healthy. They taste more like dessert than a healthy protein bite.  They are the perfect on the go snack.

The best things about this recipe is that it is super versatile. If you do not have flax seed on hand substitute wheat germ. Try dark chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet. Add in shredded coconut, cranberries or cocoa powder.

These Peanut Butter Energy Bites could easily pass as dessert. My batch lasted less than 24 hours. They are the perfect mix between a granola bar and cookie dough. Great to curb the afternoon munchies and the dreaded mid afternoon energy slump.

You can even freeze these Peanut Butter Bites if you don’t eat them all within a week.

To make these Peanut Butter Bites simply combine all 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir to combine. Place in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes so they are easier to roll. Roll into 12 bites and store in the fridge for up to a week.

  • I’ve been wanting to make something exactly like these bites for weeks now! This must a sign that I need to make these asap! I never pack enough snacks for the day and when I get home from work I’m so hungry that I head straight for the chips! These look like they would taste so good and fill me up. Making them this weekend 🙂

  • I just made a really similar snack the other day with some leftover melted chocolate! These look delicious, and I love how simple they are! No bake snacks are the best, so quick and easy and delicious!

  • Peanut butter energy bites are my favorite! It’s such a good way to get a healthy dose of pb. I’ve never tried flaxseed in these before, so I will have to test this out. Gorgeous pictures, Kelley! Pinned!

  • Energy bites are just so great for the times when I need a healthy sugar fix… so this recipe is just ideal for me. Love how easy they are to make and how they only require 5 ingredients!

  • These are amazing! I make these balls all the time because I’m that obsessed with peanut butter. Always switching up the ingredients to give it a new kick 🙂

  • Nicole

    Hello, I did use the quick oats and these are amazing! My family loves them. Thank you.

  • Tina

    Hello, just a quick question – do you think that it is possible to replace the honey with maple syrup? I don’t want to mess it up competely 🙂 Thank you!

    • Hi Tina,

      Yes that would be totally fine. I think it will give it great flavor too. Let me know how it turns out.

      Thanks!

      Kelley

  • Leah Neal

    This recipe looks incredible! I was wondering though, could these last longer if they were frozen?

    • Hi Leah!

      Thank you so much! I personally have not tried freezing them before but I think they should freeze well. They will last longer if they are frozen. Just allow them to defrost before serving. Let me know how it works out for you!

      Thank you,

      Kelley

  • Darienne Hartman

    Hi! Just curious. I know the recipe says that it makes 12 bites but how many bites would be considered 1 serving?

    • Hi Darienne,

      I would say 2 per serving. They have a lot of protein in them but also extra calories due to the peanut butter. So I would have 2 is a good rule of thumb.

      Thanks!

      Kelley

      • Edward P Voakes

        Have you worked out the math on how many total calories there are per bite? Also sugar? Thank you…

        • Hi Edward,

          Yes you can find that info in the comments section. Lots of other people have asked for it. I will also be putting it in the recipe box for people to have.

          Thanks!

          Kelley

      • Nancy

        Please not that recipe currently indicates that a serving is ONE “bite” .

  • Kim

    These are great! I made up a batch last night, they’re so tasty and a great snack to stash in the work fridge! Do you by any chance know the nutrition for each bite? I suppose I could count up the macros myself, but figure if you already have them it would be helpful. Thanks!

    • Hi Kim!

      So glad you liked them! I plugged in the ingredients into the Calorie Count Calculator and got the following. They are about 200 calorie per serving (1 bite). The calories are a bit higher because of the peanut butter. Moderation is key with these I would stick to one as a snack per day.

      Thanks!

  • Aly

    I accidentally used 2/4 cup of pb! what to do?? I don’t want to throw them away ?

    • Hi Aly!

      No problem. This recipe is awesome because you can add more or less oats if the mixture is too wet or too dry. So I would add some more oats and combine everything. If you are not able to roll them (still too wet) add some more oats and some more flax seeds!

      Hope you enjoy! Thanks!

      Kelley

    • Grant

      Aly,
      If you used 2/4 (1/2) cup of peanut butter, then you need more pb not less to make the proper ratio of pb to oats. I/2 cup of peanut butter is 1/6 cup less than 2/3 cup. You needed to ADD 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons (8 teaspoons) to achieve the correct ratio of the original recipe.

  • Laura

    What do you do if they are too dry? I followed recipe and mine were just nothing but crumbles. I added some more peanut butter and honey, which helped some, but they are still super crumbly and barely hold together.

    • Hi Laura,

      I’m sorry they came out too dry. You are right by adding more honey or peanut butter which act as a binder. You can also add a bit of coconut oil. You do have to work them a bit into a ball with your hands. I hope that helps!

      Thank you,

      Kelley

    • Hi Monia!

      You can add some chia seeds to the mixture 1-2 tablespoons but I would not substitute all of the flax for chia seeds.

      Thanks!

      Kelley

      • Is there something i could use instead of flax seed. I tried it once and gave me a migraine?

        • Hi Chris,

          I am sorry to hear flax seeds give you a migraine. I would substitute chia seeds for the flax seed.

          Thanks!

          Kelley

          • Darcey

            I didn’t have flax seeds so I used chia seeds. Still super yum!

  • Ruby

    I just made my 2nd batch. I love them, and they are sooo easy and quick to make and store. I freeze them then pop a few into the refrigerator every wk, and eat one before heading to the gym or running every morning. I love that they give me just the right amount of energy I need yet they don’t feel heavy. Before discovering them, I ate a little peanut butter before working out or running. But I prefer these since they have oats and flax seeds; way healthier. I also add a little vanilla, just to kick the flavor up a bit.

    Thanks so much for sharing the recipe, I really appreciate it.

    Ruby

  • lauren

    Made these once before and loved them! Was wondering, could I add almonds somehow? Thanks!

    • Hi Lauren!

      I am so glad you liked them! I would try grinding up the almonds in a food processor until they are fine. You can try substituting this for the flax seeds. Let me know how it turns out!

      Thanks,

      Kelley

  • Kirsten

    What is flax seed ground? I’m not familiar…..can I buy them at a regular grocery store? Are they expensive?thank you for your time!

    • Hi Kristen,

      Ground flax seed is a good source of protein and fiber. You can by it at a regular grocery store. I know Walmart usually has it as well. It is not too expensive either.

      Hope this helps! Thanks!

      Kelley

  • Rebecca

    I’m making these for the people who come to my Bootcamp class for a protein fix, post workout.
    I used maple syrup instead of honey and added a scoop of peanut butter protein powder too.
    Thanks for the great recipe!

  • Jen

    These look yummy! Have you tried it with ground flax though for digestive reasons? I thought flax seeds can’t get broken down in our systems. I would love to experiment with ground flax but wonder how much to add to it since it might change the texture of the energy balls.

  • TheMrs

    I just tried this recipe! I subbed in 1/2 chia and 1/2 ground flax along with using almond butter, toasted coconut and pecans. Yum! Very sticky so I added a little more oats. Next time I’ll probably add protein powder.

  • Crystal

    I’m wondering if there’s a subsitute for the honey to lower the sugar. Is the honey just for sweetness or to help bind everything together? If just sweetness..can less honey and some stevia packets work? Can unsweetened applesauce help?

    • Hi Crystal,

      Honey is added mostly for sweetness. I would try adding less honey and some coconut oil (not too much) to help keep everything together. You could also substitute agave nectar if you prefer. As for the applesauce I think it would make the mixture too wet.

      I hope this helps! Thank you,

      Kelley

  • liz

    hi
    I just made these and they are WAY to go to be healthy for you.. I appreciate the fact that you did a calorie break down. Helps to know to only eat 1 a day. They are a great quick fix for a fast pick me up.

  • Melissa

    These are amazing! Just made my second batch. Do you know the nutritional information on these?

    • Hi Melissa!

      I am so glad you enjoyed them! I plugged in the ingredients into the Calorie Count Calculator and got the following. They are about 200 calorie per serving (1 bite). The calories are a bit higher because of the peanut butter. Moderation is key with these I would stick to one as a snack per day.

        • Hi Carmen!

          I have never tried making these with powdered peanut butter buts its a great idea! You may have to add some more honey to make it stick together. Maybe you can substitute some of the regular peanut butter for the powdered peanut butter instead of all of it.

          Thanks!

          Kelley

  • Katya Jutras

    Hi! I have tried your energy bites and they are simply DELICIOUS!! Very few ingredients, easy and fast to make; it’s totally awesome!! 🙂

    Have a good day

  • shuly berkowitz

    Can i use natural peanut butter? The recipe doesnt say

  • Lora

    I make a half batch once a week. These are delicious. Thanks so much for this recipe.

  • Kaeti

    These are delicious and just what I was looking for! I added one banana to mine too, it helped them stick together.

  • Rachel

    I made these with chia seeds (soaked) instead of the ground flax seed and they were delicious!

  • Kelley, I love these so much! They’re perfect for long overnight hikes – the protein and carbs and calories really keep me going! When I make them for hiking, I use maple and bump that up a bit and also adds some protein powder and salt for the extra electrolytes, but I love making the standard recipe for daily use too. Thanks!

  • Beth Hile

    Do you have the intake values for these bites? (Calorie, fat, carb, sugar…)

      The calorie count breakdown is in the comments. I ran the nutrition facts a couple of times for others.

      Thanks!

  • Lissa

    My son does not like oats. Is there something I can use as a substitute for oats? He doesn’t like coconut either. It is a texture thing.

    • Hi Lissa,

      You can try substituting more flax seed or adding raw nuts to a food processor and blending those up and adding them instead of the oats.

      I hope this helps & you enjoy!

      Thanks!

      Kelley

  • Paula

    I was looking for a muffin recipe but didn’t want to heat up my kitchen. So glad I found this no-bake, simple recipe on Pinterest. I made a double batch using this recipe but added about a teaspoon of vanilla extract. It tastes great. I filled a gallon zip with tater tot-sized balls and used some crumbly leftovers on top of my greek yogurt. I have been looking for something palatable to eat after I drink my vegan pea protein shakes (yes, it tastes as bad as it sounds) and this will be a perfect sweet treat!

  • Jessica

    I absolutely love these! I substitute the peanut butter with almond butter since it’s better for you, and opted for gluten free all natural extra dark chocolate chips, and let me tell you, they are to die for!! So glad I found this recipe.

  • Kathy Price

    I figured these on the Weight Watchers app at 7 Smart Points for one bite! They better be good!!😍

  • Liz

    What kind I peanut butter donyou suggest? Meaning all natural/freshly ground vs a brand like Jif or Peter Pan?

    • Hi Liz,

      Either should be fine. I personally always make them with Jif creamy peanut butter but that is what I usually have on hand.

      Thank you & Enjoy!!

      Kelley

  • Sarah

    My boys all wrestle and love these quick and healthy energy balls. I use less honey and chocolate and add chopped craisins as a substitute. Best snack every!

  • Katherine

    How did you grind up your flax seeds? Mine won’t grind in a food processor

    • Hi Katherine,

      I usually use pre ground flax seed. If it is not working in the food processor I would try blending it in a coffee or spice grinder if you have one.

      Thank you!

      Kelley

  • Amber

    I’m taking these to my MOPS group, but I may just make some for myself! They would make the perfect pregnancy snack, especially since I’m craving sweets😄

  • If you follow weight watchers these are 7 sp for ONE! Looks yummy, but I’d rather use those 7 points for a meal.

  • Riah

    Hey, I was wondering…are there any other seeds we could use instead of flax seeds?

  • Eva

    I tried making these about 2 months ago, and have been making them every week ever since!
    They are delicious, and so easy to make! Definitely my go-to snack.

    • Hi Brittney,

      The nutritional info is in the comments section. Other readers have asked for it as well.

      Thanks!

      Kelley

  • Jenn

    Found these on Pintrest and made them right away! Easy and so very yummy. I added 1/2 of a banana but it made it a little too moist. I think the next time, I’ll add more flax seeds or cocoa powder. Kids said it needed more chocolate flavor.

  • Amelia

    My batch is in the fridge now. Excited to see how my toddler likes these. I’ve been trying to find ways to get more fiber in her and this just might do it!

    • Julianna

      Amy,
      Check out the comment section, as the breakdown is listed several times… Calories are about 209 each and 7 points for Weight Watchers. Many variations and some “problems” are also addressed in the comments. Hope that helps. 🙂 I hope to make these for my calorie-burning, hypoglycemic hubby; he needs to eat so frequently. If I have any hopes of maintaining my weight, I need to eat about 2/3-1/2 of what he eats at meal times only! Not much snacking for me.

  • Melissa

    Yummm yummmm yummm
    I made mine according to recipe but ground thenoatmeal in the coffee grinder for a dough texture.
    Again, yummmmm

  • AMY WALLACE

    wow!!!! just made these bites, love the taste but wow, just calculated the points for weight watches and each bite is a whopping 8 points!!!!!!!

  • Paige

    These look great! I’m watching my calories for breakfast but want to add these into my morning routine. Do you know the nutrional information for one of these bites? Specifically the calorie count. Thanks so much. Can’t wait to make them.

  • Amy

    Have you ever frozen these? They are great, and I’d love to have some in my freezer!

    • Hi Amy,

      I’ve actually never tried freezing them. I would recommend freezing one to see how it defrosts. Let me know how it works out!

      Thanks!

      Kelley

  • Ashley

    Just made these; I put the oats in my food processor for a couple seconds tho. They’re so good! I used honey and chocolate chips in one batch and butterscotch chips and maple syrup in another. These are going to be requested often here.

  • Julie

    I used the PB2 and added Craisons instead of the chocolate chips. Turned out great!! Thank you for the recipe!!

  • Valerie

    Hi – excited to try these out. Will be making as a treat/energy for daughter’s swim team at their conference meet. Do you know if they will hold up (shape wise) out of the fridge for several hours? I plan on placing two in a small treat bag for each of the girls, but worried about them falling apart.

    • Hi Valerie,

      Shape wise these will definitely hold up. The peanut butter does a good job of keeping everything together.

      Thanks & Enjoy!

      Kelley

  • Kristin

    These are wonderful and my busy family loves them!!!
    Will you tell me what the 21 day fix count would be for these?

  • Silke

    I definitely want to try these but would like some suggestions regarding what to replace the chocolate chips with (I already noted craisins in the comments). Any ideas?

  • Kathleen

    These are soooo yummy! Thank you for pinning!! I only had steal cut oats on hand, so I ground them up in my coffee grinder & used them instead of rolled oats. I included dark choclate chips but these are so good, the chocolate is optional. I may substitute raisins for the chocolate chips next time. Thank you!

  • Sharon

    Hi, just wondering if you could offer a substitute for oatmeal (for someone who has an intolerance to oats!)
    Thx!

    • Hi Sharon,

      I have not tried making it without oats but I think you could substitute coconut flakes, wheat germ, protein powder, or chopped nuts. You can do a mixture of a couple of them to equal the same amount.

      Thank you!

      Kelley

  • Nio Gio

    I used golden flax seed in this and gave it a more nutter taste. Solid measurements and a great snack when you’re crangry.

  • Jessica

    Hi this might be a stuptid question but when you say 2/3 cup of pb what size cup do you mean???

  • Mary

    I made a batch tonight and we love them. My 8-year-old daughter keeps asking for more! They were very crumbly when I tried to roll them, so I used a Healthy Portions cookie tool with a flexible scoop. Just pack the batter in and press the back of the scoop to release the ball! I did also use slightly more peanut butter than what was called for. With the scoop I made around 13 balls. So easy and yummy 😋

  • Monica Martin

    My daughter would make these for me. She wouldn’t tell me how or what all went into them. I finally found your site and ah ha I’m really happy. If you like to give food gifts this is a good one. My special touch is to dust them with hazelnut, raspberry or chocolate dry cocoa mix. I love this healthy snake.

  • Genna Mairead

    Your claim about the fiber content in flax seed is incorrect. There are on 1.9 g fiber in 1 T ground flaxseed and 2.8 g fiber in 1 T whole. You may want to update that!

  • Ranine

    Hi, can I substitute flax seed for chia seeds instead for this recipe? Thank you!

      • Ranine

        Thanks for replying! I’m trying the recipe out right now and it’s very crumbly? I’ve added more peanut butter and honey but they’re still very crumbly, even when I left them in the fridge for over 30 min. What can I do to save them so I don’t waste it?

        • Hi Ranine,

          I would try then adding a splash of water. I think that will help form everything together.

          Thank you!!

          Kelley

  • Stephanie

    Awesome. Really good tream when you crave something sweet. Easy to make. You can put mixture in a loaf tin and when set, cut into small bars.

  • Emily

    These sound great! Do you think they would work with pb2 instead of regular peanut butter and possibly chia seeds instead of flax seeds? Thanks!

    • Hi Emily,

      I am not sure how the powdered pb2 would work because the peanut butter acts as a binder. I would maybe substitute some of the reg peanut butter for a little pb2. And yes I love adding chia seeds or hemp seeds in place of flax.

      Thanks!

      Kelley

  • Anon

    I’ve made the mistake of making these! Now I’m expected to make them all the time! They go down a treat with everyone!

  • Sarah

    Really yummy! I omitted the flax seed as I didn’t have any on hand and wanted to make these immediately 🙂 I also replaced the creamy peanut butter with Organic Fit Powdered Peanut Butter (Costco’s current version PB2 basically) and they were delish! I think the powdered peanut butter saved some major calories so that is a plus too!

  • Ariel

    I made these but without the honey. And added another 1/4 c of peanut butter. I’m trying to find out what the total carbs is for my alteration.
    Please if you could get back to me. Thanks Ariel

  • Jaime

    What is considered a serving for the nutritional information?

  • meg

    I don’t have any flax seeds what can i use to substitute for it?

  • Elizabeth

    I make this every week and it is my favorite recipe! I love it and I really cannot get enough of it! Tastes so good and it’s even better knowing it’s not full of fat and sodium!

  • Tess rivera

    This is great. I would definitely give a try. However, I prefer the old fashion oats to be toasted so that you could get rid of the raw taste

  • Stephanie

    These were great with soy butter (wow butter) instead of peanut butter. We can’t have peanut butter in the house due to my son’s allergies. Thanks for the recipe!

  • Maria Campagnolo

    Instead of making 12 I make 24 so I can be getting less calories. I find that a smaller bite satisfies me. I love the combination of the ingredients. Thank you . I like these better than granola bars.

  • Candice

    My husband loves them! And so easy to make! Thanks so much!

  • Monique

    I made this for my daughter. She loved them. Unfortunately, my mother ate them all!!! 🙂 But I made more for my daughter.

  • Nora

    Wondering if baking them would work? This sounds like a great snack for my toddler (minus the chocolate chips) but I’m not sure if raw oats are edible for young kids. If they can be baked, how long should they be in the oven for?

  • Jen

    Easy, yummy and delicious. Heavy on peanut butter. I stored them in a tupperware, separated by wax paper in fridge for up to one week. That’s as long as they lasted.

  • Ashten

    I make these as a part of our weekly lunch snacks for a bit of energy towards the end of the work day . They are very easy to make and absolutely delicious. I even bring some in to the girls at work because they live them so much! 🙂

  • Tina Griego

    I added sunflower seeds. This is the best snack ever!Love it

  • Jordan Boswell

    Love this recipe–very excited to make it!

    How many servings does this recipe make? I know 12 bites, but curious as to how many bites per serving.

    Thanks!

    These are incredibly good. I will have to hide them from myself so I don’t eat all of them in one sitting!!

    Is there a way to make this recipe without honey or will it throw off the taste/texture? I can’t have honey but definitely would like to try and substitute so I can eat it 🙂 looks delicious!

    • Hi Janellis!

      I would try either maple syrup or corn syrup as an alternative. You can also try pulsing up some dates in the food processor and adding that to the mixture to firm everything up and make it stick together.

      Thanks!

    I am frustose intolerant and can’t have fructose or sucrose including honey or maple syrup. I would love to try these, but is there something that be substitute for honey or do you think it will work to leave it out? I can easily you substitute cacao powder or coconut for the chic chips. I really have been wanting to make a bar or bites like these!

    • Hi Ginger,

      I would try dates pulsed in the food processor to thicken them up in place of the honey!

      Thanks!

    Can this recipe be frozen? Making it for my granddaughter who is in college and plays soccer. This would be a great pick me up. I thought if I froze them, they would stay firm for the hour and a half drive? Thanks

    • Hi Ann,

      I have not tried freezing these so it’s hard to say. It may be better to pack them in a cooler with ice or just freeze them for an hour or two so they stay cold for the drive.

      Thanks & Enjoy!
