No-Bake Peanut Butter Coconut Energy Balls


Last Friday, I was at home with the kids. I kinda felt like baking but I was also kinda lazy…so I decided to make a no-bake recipe. I mixed a bunch of stuff together, and they were delicious! These take just a few minutes to mix up. Refrigerate until they are solid, and they are ready to eat. You can try substituting different nuts, dried fruits, and even nut butter.

    did you use natural or reg peanut butter mine only made 18 not 3 dozen

    • Carrie Wells, Ed.D. says:

      I use an all-natural peanut butter. To make the balls, I have a small scoop that I purchased from Pampered Chef. Maybe it ends up being less than a tablespoon each?

    What do you suggest to use in the place of Coconut?

    • Carrie Wells, Ed.D. says:

      I’m not really sure. I’d probably mix it up without the coconut, and based on the texture, add a little extra oatmeal and extra nuts. If they seem firm without the additions, I would make them like that :-)
