Using clean hands, roll the mixture into small 1 inch balls. Place them on a plate and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Notes:

  • If the mixture feels too sticky, then you can add a bit more oats, chia seeds or flaxseed until you get the consistency you like.
  • Feel free to omit the maple syrup to reduce sugar content.
  • Store any extra bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Bon appétit and enjoy! 🥰☀️

    Thanks for the great recipe! These were quick to make & even quicker to eat. I reduced the “optional” maple syrup to 1 tablespoon (I like sweet & he doesn’t) = a win/win for both us. I will definitely be making them again 🙂

    I replaced peanut butter (Since peanuts re usually moldy) with almond butter and cashew butter mix , and the sweetnes from the cashew butter replaced the maple syrup (I had to add 1 tbsp only to give it some more moist) they came out super delicious . Thank you !!!

    Apparently you are unaware that recent research has shown that peanuts are detrimental to the digestive system. Substitute a treeead nut instead, such as pistachios or walnuts.instead.

    Is it possible to have the nutritional content for this recipe? I’m following a very rigid low-carbohydrate diet and am concerned that the maple sugar and chocolate will had too much of an impact on the number of carbs allowed. I love the idea of this recipe. Thank you.

      Add ingredient macros separately and
      Divide by number of bites

    This is a great recipe.
    On a whim I bought Kodiak protein ball mix. Scanned 51, no risky additives. Very similar except it takes 1/4 cup honey if made following the instructions.
    This I’m sure is cheaper and healthier because you can make it however you want really.

    I’ve made quite similar ones (I call them healthy nut balls!) and they ARE delicious! Something I do is salt the balls…it just adds a little extra ooh-aah! You can substitute maple syrup with honey, also, Honey!

    Oatmeal is great, but leaving it raw in the peanut butter balls seems unappealing. Yuku must love them otherwise she wouldn’t post them! Have any of your followers actually made them?

      Wonder if you could “roast” the oatmeal a little?

      1. Christina

        I make my own granola. I too don’t like the sound of raw oatmeal, so I might try these made with my granola instead of the raw oats, maple syrup, seeds (my granola has seeds) and salt.

    2. Shelby

      I just made them. They taste great! I did not add the maple syrup.
