No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites

We have a house full of sweet eaters so I am always looking for a clever way to enjoy sweets but with some additional nutrition benefits. Enter these no-bake chocolate chip cookie bites. The recipes uses fiber-rich oatmeal as the base and then binds them together with protein-rich peanut butter and a hint of honey. We like using peanut butter the most but you can also sub in almond butter or make them nut-free with sunflower seed butter. Whichever option you choose, they taste delicious and are sure to be a family favorite recipe.

Clever Tips for Recipe Prep

  • Measure your peanut butter without the mess by spraying your measuring cup with cooking spray first. The peanut butter will slide right out.
  • Want to cut back on the sugar? Use half the honey and add a tablespoon more peanut butter.
  • Add chia seeds for an extra fiber and a boost of protein.
  • Swap out chocolate chips for dried cranberries. Or add them both!
  • Use a cookie scoop to evenly measure balls. Roll gently in your hands and then transfer each ball to a cup in a mini muffin tin. Chill. The mini muffin tin keeps the cookie bites from rolling together.
