Some days it's just too hot to Bake......No-Bake Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Snack Bites

No-Bake Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Snack Bites I

Like your chocolate and peanut butter?? Then you will love this easy recipe and you don't have to sweat over it. It's summer but my family still wants their baked goodies. I found this recipe and a couple of other 'no bake' desserts that keep them happy.  I will post a couple more throughout the summer.
This dessert contains good healthy ingredients and not a lot of fat and sugar. Kid friendly.

Yield: 12-15 bites
Total Time: 20 minutes


1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup sliced almonds, chopped
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 1/2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
a pinch cinnamon
a pinch of salt
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter, melted and slightly cooled
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips
2 tablespoons chocolate covered sunflower seeds
ground peanuts or almonds mixed with a few pinches of cocoa powder, to roll the balls in


Combine oats, almonds, flaxseed, cocoa, chia seeds, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl and stir.
Melt peanut butter and allow it to cool slightly (I melted mine in the microwave for about 30 seconds, then stirred), then stir in honey and vanilla extract until it's combined. Once peanut butter has cooled a bit, pour it over the oat mixture and mix well with a spoon then bring together with your hands. Once mixture is sticking together, fold in chocolate chips and sunflower seeds.
Roll dough into golf-ball sized (or slightly smaller) balls, then roll in ground peanuts or ground almonds tossed with cocoa powder. These can be eaten at room temp but we really like them stored in the fridge! My grandsons with a sweet tooth inhale these.

I found the recipe on 'How Sweet it is'  -
There are lots of other great recipes for serious food lovers there.

  2. Hi PIC
    I forgot about the crab cakes. I knew I was looking for something.
    I can't eat these or any other kind of dessert. Too many ingredients I am anaphylactic too. I have to go by what other people say. These were pronounced pretty good and they sure have lots of fiber in them. Happy bowels make a happy person. I am going to try your cheesecakes. I have to take desserts to the big pot-luck family party in July. I will tell you how they liked them.
    I will pull up those crab cakes when I get a minute. On the other hand, I may forget you can fuss at me all you want. Gotta go work on the Maxy letters now.
    Go polish your broom


Come on in , set awhile and have a cup of tea and cookies , as always you are welcome .
