Long live the chocolate fix without the guilt. A little cocoa powder and a few chocolate chips turn this no-bake oatmeal ball into a real treat.



  • 1 cup dry oats (I like 1/2 old fashioned oatmeal and 1/2 quick cooking)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, optional


  1. In a medium bowl, add all of the ingredients and stir to combine well. The mixture should be a bit sticky. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Use a spoon to scoop about a tablespoon of the cookie ball mixture into your hand. Roll into a ball. Repeat with remaining mixture. This should make about 14 oatmeal energy balls.
  3. Store the balls covered in the fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for much longer.
