Easy No-Bake PB&J Bites Recipe

Ingredient List

1/2 cup creamy no-salt-added unsweetened organic peanut butter, almond butter sunflower butter
1/4 cup very finely chopped dates or 1/3 cup raw honey (optional – if you don’t want the added sugar)
1 1/4 cup gluten-free rolled oats*
2 1/2 Tbsp. freshly ground flaxseed meal
2 Tbsp. (24 g) chia seeds
1/4 cup dried fruit (dried strawberries, cherries, blueberries, cranberries)
2 teaspoons organic vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon

*If gluten-free and cannot tolerate oats, try subbing a mixture of chopped nuts, shredded unsweetened coconut, and more dried fruit.

Directions

To a large mixing bowl, add almond butter, chopped dates, rolled oats, flaxseed meal, chia seeds, dried fruit of choice, vanilla and cinnamon. Mix until well combined. If mixture is too dry or crumbly, add more almond butter or a bit of purified water. If too sticky or wet, add a little bit more oats or flaxseed meal.

Chill in the refrigerator for 10 – 15 minutes. Then scoop out 1 1/2 Tbsp. amounts and roll into balls. This should yield about 13-14 balls or more.

Enjoy immediately. Store leftovers in a well-sealed container in the fridge for one week or in the freezer up to 1 month.

Please remember that when you experiment with different ingredients or leave some ingredients out entirely, the balance of the recipe may be a bit “off”. So if the mixture turns out dry, add a few more of the sticky ingredients like the peanut butter. If it gets too gooey, add in more oats.
