  • 1/2 cup (135 g) smooth natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup (99 g) old-fashioned oats (use gluten-free if on a gluten-free diet)
  • 1/3 cup (75 ml) rice malt syrup
  • 1/4 cup (37 g) roasted peanuts, chopped
  • 2 1/2 ounces (70 g) dark chocolate, finely chopped, preferably 55% to 65% cacao
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Combine all of the ingredients really well in a bowl with your hands, a sturdy wooden spoon, silicone spatula. It’s going to take some elbow grease because the rice syrup is very sticky. Or do what we do and mix these up in a stand mixer fitted with a flat paddle.
  2. Roll mixture into small 1-inch to 1 1/4-inch (2.5 to 3 cm) balls. The mixture needs to be compressed firmly using your fingers and palms. Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls are ready to eat. Store in airtight containers at room temperature for up to 4 days or freeze up to 1 month.
