No Bake Oatmeal Balls Ingredients

Here are the ingredients that you’ll need to make these oatmeal balls:

Directions to Make Oatmeal Balls

Mash the banana (about one medium banana) and measure out exactly 1/3 cup. Put in a medium bowl.

Add all remaining ingredients (unless you want to leave out the coconut to roll the balls into instead of mixing it into the balls).

Mix well.

Refrigerate for 30 minute.

Use a mini cookie scoop (or a Tbsp measuring spoon, or even a regular table spoon) to scoop the dough and roll into balls.

These oatmeal balls can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, and in the freezer for up to 3 months.

A few tips:

You could also add in some finely grated carrots or zucchini to sneak in some veggies for your picky kids!

Cocoa powder or mini chocolate chips are a great way to curb your chocolate cravings. Depending on the season, you can add in homemade Pumpkin Spice Mix or even cinnamon!

If you love cookie dough, try using quick oats instead of rolled oats.

Add in more fiber with nuts or seeds that have been finely chopped or even put through your food processor.

If this is too sweet, leave out the honey/syrup, and do 1/2 cup of banana instead. Or If you prefer sweeter, leave out the banana entirely and use 3/4 Tbsp of honey/syrup.

If your peanut butter is too thick, give it a few seconds in the microwave.

If the dough is too dry, add a bit more peanut butter, banana, honey, or maple syrup. If it is too sticky/wet, then add 1 Tbsp of oats at a time.
