No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls
Do those two little words ‘No-Bake’ get anyone else super excited?!
Don’t get me wrong.
I love nothing more than a good old cooking and baking session in the kitchen when time is on my side.
But let’s face it, those times can be few and far between for us working mummas.
Which means I’m always on the lookout for short cuts in the kitchen.
When you can throw a handful of ingredients into a bowl, mix it around, roll it into balls, and stick it in the fridge, life starts to feel easier.
The inspo for these delicious balls of goodness came because my gal oh so does love ‘licking the bowl’.
Always proclaiming how much more she loves my Anzac Biscuits, before they go into the oven.
So why don’t I knock out an entire cooking step I thought, and do the raw thang using a few of our favourite ingredients?
And the No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Ball was born and they make a perfect little after-school energy snack or mama afternoon snack and when you’re in the heat of summer and it’s too hot to turn the oven on!
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut
- 1/3 cup raw honey
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup dark choc chips or chopped 70% dark chocolate
- pinch sea salt
- Mix everything together in a medium bowl
- Pop a tablespoon of the mixture into the palm of your hand
- Squish it all together
- Then roll it into ball shape and pop it into a container
- Once you have rolled all the mixture store the balls in the fridge
