chocolate chips
coconut flake
peanut butter

Combine oatmeal, mashed banana, honey, peanut butter, flaxseed, chocolate chips, and coconut flakes.


Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the freezer for 15 minutes. This will help the oatmeal mixture to firm up and make it easier to roll into balls.


Roll into small balls, about the size of a golf ball. You should be able to make roughly 14-18 oatmeal energy balls.


Place oatmeal bites back in the freezer for another 5 minutes to set up and enjoy!

I love this recipe for a few different reasons. First, it is a very easy and quick recipe, especially if you’re in a dorm or college-living situation. All you really need is a mixing bowl and a plate. Second, I love how versatile this recipe is. You can add chopped nuts or seeds, swap out the chocolate chips for dried fruit, or even use a different nut butter or sweetener to customize the recipe to your preferences.

These make such a great snack choice as they are packed with awesome nutrients for our bodies. The oats are a great source of fiber which will help you feel full as you rush from one class to another. The nut butter will provide some protein and healthy fats, which will help keep you energized. And the honey provides a sweetness without the added sugar that is found in so many processed snacks if we’re not careful.
