Ages ago, I shared a lovely, surprisingly popular recipe for Fruit-n-Nut Peanut Butter Energy Balls. Readers really loved the simplicity of the recipe, the taste, and the ease with which they’re made.

But I kept getting asked one question over and over again: can I add anything else to this recipe? So here I am, answering it loud and clear: OH YES. And you’ve got to try this one

Why you’ll love these Peanut Butter Banana Energy Balls

These peanut butter banana energy bites are such a yummy new flavour, with the merging of creamy peanut butter, oats, and bananas… plus they have chocolate! (Everything is better with chocolate right?!?) These energy balls are the perfect flavour combination of a peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal cookie mixed with banana bread.

Not only do chocolate chips pretty much make everything better, but they also make these energy bites better. No need to melt chocolate and do a pretty drizzle, no need to do anything more elaborate than just scooping out the right amount of chocolate chips and folding them straight in.

Ingredients you’ll need to make Peanut Butter Balls

This is a favourite recipe of mine because it uses common pantry items that I usually have in the house:

  • ripe bananas
  • rolled oats
  • peanut butter, or your favourite nut butter like almond butter
  • honey
  • mini chocolate chips, and
  • cinnamon

How to make Peanut Butter Energy Bites

These are so simple to make that even your kids can help!

  1. Mash up the bananas in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Stir in the rolled oats, almond butter, honey, miniature chocolate chips and cinnamon.
  3. Scoop about 2 tablespoons of the mixture and roll into a 1-inch ball. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
  4. Refrigerate for 2 hours, allowing the oats enough time to soften.
  5. Store the energy bites in the refrigerator.

My kids love these and they’re a perfect make ahead snack because…

Peanut Butter Energy Bites Can be Frozen!

These peanut butter banana energy bites can be frozen for up to 3 months.

Place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for about 1 hour until they are frozen solid throughout, then transfer them to an airtight container. (This way they won’t stick to each other).

Place the bag in the freezer for up to 3 months. When you are ready to eat some they can be thawed in the fridge overnight and enjoyed the next day for a perfect on the go snack or breakfast!

Time to get rolling, enjoy!
