Peanut Butter cookies are one of my all time favorite flavors of cookies. The creamy, chewy texture and peanut-y flavor, there’s just something so right about it. I just don’t always have the time to bake a fresh batch and ugh! wait for them to cool. That’s where these No Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Balls come in.
These little guys have just 6 ingredients, no refined sugar, are gluten free(if you use gluten free oats), and take less than 20 minutes start to finish.
Now that’s my kind of cookie!
Dates are endlessly versatile and the secret to these delicious little treats. This naturally sweet, antioxidant rich fruit is perfect for sweetening these No bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal balls instead of sugar. Plus, there’s the added bonus of fiber and nutrients like iron, potassium, and vitamin A. That means this cookie ball is good for you too.
If you love peanut butter then I am sure you will love these No Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Balls. They’re quick, easy, healthy, and most importantly delicious.
