No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Balls

These come together so quickly and they are the perfect treat to have stashed in your freezer for when a dessert craving strikes!


2 cups quick oats
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 Tbsp. water
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar


In a large bowl, combine the oats, sugar, and cocoa. Add in the water, vanilla, butter, and peanut butter. Use your hands to mix the ingredients until it comes together in a dough. If it is too crumbly then add 1 Tbsp. more water or peanut butter until it is sticky.

Put the powdered sugar in a shallow dish or bowl, then roll the dough into 1-2 Tbsp.-sized balls and roll them through the powdered sugar until coated. Brush or tap off the excess powdered sugar. You just want a very light dusting and not a thick layer otherwise the sugar taste will overpower everything.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer for longer storage.
