Peanut Butter Energy Bites are super easy to make, and this recipe calls for just five simple ingredients – soft dates, rich peanut butter, comforting oats, healthy chia seeds, and a splash of vanilla. These are the perfect energy-boosting treats to have in the fridge for a quick breakfast on-the-go or a healthy midday snack.
- 15 Dates, pitted
- ¼ Cup Peanut Butter
- 2 Tablespoons Water
- 1 Cup Oats
- 1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds
- 1 Pinch Salt
Soak the dates in water for 5 hours, then drain, discarding the water.
In your Short Cup, add the soaked dates, peanut butter, water, and vanilla extract. Blend until completely smooth.
Scoop the mixture into a bowl and stir in the oats, chia seeds, and salt. Stir until the mixture is completely even. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Use a cookie scoop to portion the mixture out onto the cookie sheet. Freeze uncovered for 30 minutes, then roll into balls.
