Here are some TIPS for making easy chocolate peanut butter no bake energy balls:

  • Make sure to CHILL the mixture since that makes it easier to handle the mixture and roll it into even sized chocolate energy balls.

  • You can adjust the quantity of cocoa powder to suit your preference.
  • You can make VEGAN no bake energy balls, if you use an alternate sweetener that’s vegan-friendly.
  • To make sure these peanut butter energy balls truly gluten free, make sure to use gluten free oats.

  1. @Linda… I use fat free milk at home. So, that’s what i used in these choco balls. But, you can use skim or even full fat milk if you like 🙂
