How To Make The BEST Peanut Butter Balls Recipe – Step by Step Instructions

Step 1 Grind Old Fashioned Oats in a High-Speed Blender

I pulsed the blender a few times, so the oats were roughly chopped but NOT a powder.

Step 2Add Oats, Peanut Butter, Honey, Vanilla, and Salt to a large Mixing Bowl. Mix and add Mini Chocolate Chips. (Optional – add chopped Peanuts)

Step 3Have fun rolling up your Healthy Peanut Butter Balls!

I made mine with three different toppings and placed them in small truffle paper cups. Use about a Tablespoon of peanut butter mixture for each bliss ball. You can also use a small cookie scoop. Roll into a ball and dip in your preferred topping. You could add a chocolate chip on top. I used:

  • Chopped Peanuts
  • Flaked Coconut
  • Chocolate Chips

Your Questions Answered

Can I make these with agave nectar?

I never have and would need to test a recipe. I do believe honey works the best as it’s sticky.

Would these work with other seeds or nut butter?

Absolutely! We love Sunbutter, Almond Butter, and Tahini balls.

How long can you store these in the refrigerator?

I always store mine in the freezer with a layer of parchment between each layer. They defrost quickly.

What type of Peanut Butter works best for this recipe?

I love all-natural peanut butter that is a bit runnier. You stir it before serving. I used Santa Cruz Brand.

What should I do if my mixture is too dry?

Add a little extra peanut butter. The balls should hold together easily when you roll them in your hand.

Could I make these with white chocolate?

Yum! I love all things white chocolate. You could use white chocolate chips.

What other variations are possible with this No-Bake Peanut Butter Treat?

You can roll them in Cocoa Powder or Dip them in melted Dark or White Chocolate.

I hope you enjoyed this No-Bake Peanut Butter Bliss Ball Recipe!
