Cookie Butter Energy Balls. No-bake.


These are a take-off of my original energy balls.  I wanted to mix these goodies up and try some cookie butter (from Trader Joe’s) in there to see how they turned out.  They are fabulous!  A bit of a different flavor but oh-so-good!  You can tweak these however you prefer.  I omit chocolate chips and add butterscotch for my husband who is allergic to chocolate.  White chocolate chips would also be perfect!

These will make a great snack or a fast breakfast!  Pack them in your kids lunch for a yummy surprise!

1 c of old-fashioned oats
1 c of toasted coconut flakes
1/2 c of chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)
1/2 c of Cookie Butter (Speculoos) (regular peanut butter or nut butter can also be used)
1/2 c of wheat bran
1 tbl of chia seeds
1/3 c + 1 /4 tsp of honey (I used raw)
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 pinch of salt

Mix it all together in a bowl and then refrigerate for 45 minutes.  Remove and make into balls.  I used a small scooper (1-1.5 inch) to press it in and then eject it.  Rolled it with my hands to get a ball shape all around and then place in a airtight container to refrigerate.  Will last 5-7 days but most likely they will be long gone before that!

  1. Yeah! Finally a nut free substitute to make these fab energy balls for my kiddos. Nic is over the moon. Soy butter does not cut it since too similar to peanut butter. Cant wait to try. Now just to get a hold of the magic ingredient. Thanks for posting!!

    1. Renie, YAY!!! So happy I found a great substitute. Alex can get some for you the next time she visits her parents πŸ™‚ If I go, I’ll stock up for you too! oxox

  2. Do you have a recommendation for substitution of the coconut (my kids are not fans) or does it change the recipe too much? Thanks!

    1. I think it would. I would give it a try, even just lessen the amount by half and try it. I’m not a fan of coconut but it really makes it taste great with a fantastic consistency. πŸ™‚
