Biscoff Peanut Butter Balls

It’s no secret that I love Biscoff (cookie butter) and I’m always looking for quick and tasty pre-workout snacks, like my Mango Coconut Bliss Energy Bites.

Biscoff Peanut Butter Balls

Working full-time, training for triathlon and running races, and being a mom to three active young kids leaves little time for much else. These Biscoff Peanut Butter Balls are no-bake and come together in less than 20 minutes!

Biscoff Peanut Butter Balls

The ingredients are few and simple, most likely you will have them all in your pantry or cupboard already. I was able to whip these up after dinner one night and by morning, I had 18 delicious little balls of protein packed energy balls! I store them in a sealed container in my refrigerator and can simply grab a couple on my way out the door for my workout.

These incredible energy balls come together super easily and quickly. Just grab a medium size bowl  and dump all your wet ingredients in to the bowl. Using a hand held electric mixer combine the wet ingredients.

Next you add in your flours, 3 tablespoons at a time. Once those are incorporated add your oats. The shredded coconut and mini-chocolate chips are optional, but who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter?

You could use all cookie butter or all peanut butter, if that’s your preference.  Feel free to play around with the types of flour, as well as the add-ins, to create your own version.

    Talk about instant gratification- It’s amazing how quickly and easily these treats come together. Perfect for days when it’s too hot to turn on the oven, too. :)

    These are great! I switched in 2 TBS raisins for the chocolate chips and mixed it all with a wooden spoon, not a mixer. Worked fine. I used reduced fat organic shredded coconut. My omnivore husband loved them too. Thanks for giving me something productive to do with that jar of too-sweet Biscoff cookie butter!

      Thanks so much for your feedback Shielagh! I am glad to hear that both you and your husband enjoyed them. :-)
