Prep Time: 20 mins

These chocolate-studded, no-bake Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Energy Bites are sweet, rich and UBER peanut buttery.  You'd never know they're low sugar, gluten free, dairy free and vegan!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Natural Peanut Butter**
  • ½-¾ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk**
  • 2 tsp Liquid Stevia Extract
  • 1 tbs Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 cup (packed) Quinoa Flakes
  • ½ cup Quick Cooking Oats
  • ½ cup Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Instructions

  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a stand mixer with beater attachment, add the peanut butter, almond milk, stevia extract, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt. Mix on low speed until fully incorporated.
  • Add the quinoa flakes, mix, then add the oats, mix, and then add the chocolate chips. Mix until everything is even. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if necessary.
  • Use a cookie scoop to portion out the dough and roll the dough into balls.
  • Place the balls onto the pan, then refrigerate uncovered for 30 minutes. Serve immediately or store in a tightly sealed container in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

**My peanut butter was quite dry (it was the last bit out of the jar where I didn't mix in the oil that had separated well enough). So I needed to use ¾ cup of almond milk. I would recommend starting out with ½ cup, then add more milk if the dough needs it.
If you don't have Quinoa Flakes, you can try using all Quick Cooking Oats, but I haven't tried it.
