No bake oatmeal nut butter balls


oat nut butter balls

I made some balls! Ha! If you know me, you know that I say “balls” a lot. Ha-balls!

Well, back to these balls.

This quickie of a recipe is great for breakfast or as a snack. Once made they can be kept in the refrigerator or at room temperature in an air tight container, making them ideal for travel.

These balls are healthy and ridiculously simple. I have tried to make some other ball or bite recipes that claim to be easy, and did not get one little ball to stick. These balls I have made twice and they have held up really well.

These balls are guy tested as well. My fella loves them and has eaten a few for breakfast for the past few weeks.

Mix and match ingredients to cater to your taste. Play with different nut varieties, seeds, etc.

Enjoy your balls!

These healthy oatmeal and nut butter balls are so simple to make! The fiber and healthy fat from the oats and the nuts make these balls very filling. Great for travel too.
Recipe type: Breakfast
  • Dry Ingredients:
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • ¼ cup chopped almonds
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips, roughly chopped (mini chips would work too)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • Wet Ingredients:
  • ⅓ cup nut butter, crunchy or smooth (I used almond)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Combine all the dry ingredients (oats, seeds, nuts, chocolate, cinnamon) in a bowl.
  2. Melt the almond butter (stove top or 35 seconds in the microwave). Stir in the honey and the vanilla into the almond butter.
  3. Pour the nut butter mixture into the dry ingredients. Mix well to combine. The dry ingredients should mix with the sticky nut butter and form one large ball.
  4. With clean hands, (important) roll the mixture into small balls about the size of a golf ball. Store in an air tight container either at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
Make sure to keep your hands clean while rolling the balls, in order to prevent the balls from crumbling and sticking to your hands.
