No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

March 29, 2012

I created this recipe one day when I was craving something sweet but didn’t feel like driving just to get dessert. This is such a simple decadent treat to make with only a few ingredients you probably have on hand already. I actually ate 3 of these before a 20 mile trail run and didn’t feel hungry the entire time. More power to the healthy fats in peanut butter and the dark chocolate chips didn’t hurt either 😉 It’s also the perfect bite to cure that sweet tooth after dinner. Maybe I should find a way to bring some to Zion…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup dark chocolate chips
  • Shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/2 Cup peanut butter

Directions

1. Mix the chocolate chips, oats and peanut butter together.

2. Scoop out a spoonful and roll into a ball. Works best when your hands are wet.

3. Roll each ball in shredded coconut

4. Place on parchment paper and freeze for a good 1-2 hours before eating
