I love simple snacks at times when I need a quick energy boost, or just something to keep me going till meal time. These bites work perfectly. Delicious, fun and satisfying.
Nut butter, light sweetness from coconut sugar or other unrefined sugar, Rice krispies for texture and some chocolate chips. Nothing better than peanut butter and chocolate!
I was thinking of making a version oat nut butter no bake cookies at first. I don’t particularly like oats raw (although you can sub them here easily), so I changed them up. I like texture much better from rice krispies. They add crunch and airyness to an otherwise dense bite. Use any grain krispies/puffed grain such as quinoa, millet, wheat, plain or chocolate. These bites have texture from the krispies and chocolate, fudgy from peanut butter, amazing flavor and are super quick to make. Just add into the processor, process, shape, chill. These bites keep well for a couple of weeks (they never last that long!). Lets make these No Bake Nut Butter Cookies Bites!

Peanut Butter Balls with rice krispies or oats. These Peanut butter Energy bites like no bake chocolate nut butter cookies. 6 Ingredients. Rice Krispies add texture. Use puffed quinoa, millet or other grain. Vegan Gluten-free Soy-free Recipe. Use sunbutter for nutfree
- 3/4 cup peanut butter at room temp (I like smooth unsweetened nut butter)
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 4 tbsp chopped dark chocolate or a mix of dark chocolate and mini chocolate chips
- 1.5 cup rice krispies or chocolate rice krispies
- 2 tsp oil or maple syrup to help bind optional, as needed
- Add peanut butter, coconut sugar, vanilla, maple syrup to the food processor, process for a minute to mix the sugar.
- Add chocolate, salt, 1 cup krispies and pulse to mix and break most of them. Add the remaining rice krispies and pulse to mix and break half of the krispies.
- Shape using hands or a scoop. Hands will warm the nut butter making it easier to bind. If using a scoop you might need to add maple or oil so that the mixture sticks easily as some nut butters are dryer.
Shape, chill for a few mins and serve. Store refrigerated for upto 2 weeks, freeze for upto a month.
Use other nut butters for variation, sunbutter for nutfree.
You can use 7 to 8 dates instead of coconut sugar.
Use raw or toasted Oats instead of krispies.
Use other puffed grain such as puffed quinoa, millet or wheat instead of rice krispies.
Use dried fruit, dates instead of chocolate.
