You know those afternoon sweets cravings? And that after dinner need for a little something to snack on? I’ve definitely been there. And all I want to do is reach for a cookie. But we don’t want to eat cookies every day! (Well, we might want to… but we won’t.) Because we have healthy eating goals! So instead, let’s make a batch of these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Energy Bites!

You can easily convince yourself that you’re enjoying a decadent bite of cookie dough when you eat one of these energy bites.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Place oats, peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt in a food processor and pulse until combined, about 10 pulses. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add chocolate chips and pulse a few times to coarsely chop.
  • Taking small spoonfuls of the mixture at a time, use your hands to form it into 1-inch balls. I find that using both the palm of my hand and fingertips to squeeze the mixture together works best to shape the balls.
  • Store in the refrigerator.
