Oatmeal Cookie Dough Energy Bites on a tray

Love cookie dough?

Snack on these yummy oatmeal cookie dough energy bites that taste like peanut butter oatmeal cookie dough! My family is crazy for this popular no-bake oatmeal and peanut butter cookie – and I don’t think we’re alone, as this Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Energy Bites post is one of our most visited recipes in Hip2Save history.

Oatmeal Cookie Dough Energy Bites – processing oatmeal

Try making energy bites using the food processor!

Today I’m sharing a similar version, but this time using a food processor to chop the oatmeal into a finer texture that gives these bites the taste and texture of cookie dough, which I prefer! Plus this version has unsweetened coconut and vanilla extract for even more delicious flavor and texture.

It takes just a few minutes to mix this together and make the dough balls! These go in the freezer for about an hour to set, and then you can enjoy this perfect two-bite snack! I keep a covered container in the fridge with my energy bites.

Oatmeal Cookie Dough Energy Bites – ingredients on the counter

Easy pantry ingredients!

You may already have everything on hand for this easy snack idea. I’m simply using old-fashioned rolled oats, peanut butter, honey, and ground flax seed for a little extra nutrition. If any of these ingredients don’t sound delicious, it’s easy to customize this idea to taste. And of course, if there’s a peanut allergy, consider a nut alternative like SunButter.

We love these YUMMY no-bake snacks!

My kids really enjoy energy bites as a lunchbox snack or even after school. Sometimes I’ll have one or two with coffee in the morning on the go! Great homemade portable snack.

    Sounds good. Might I suggest a small tweak. Rolled oats are finer and would work better from a texture standpoint. If you own a vitamix or a good blender (Perhaps even a magic bullet), I would chop the oats in there first to create a flour. I think that might make a yummy dough!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks Lisa! That’s exactly what I did here! Maybe that wasn’t clear, but I did run the ots through a food processor and you’re right, love the end result! 🙂

      • Lisa

        Lina, sorry I missed that! Sounds really good and healthy. I can’t use white flour so I often substitute with oats or other flours.

        • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

          that’s a nice idea- thanks! 🙂

    Don’t do it..whatever it takes don’t make these!!! No matter how hard I try I find myself passing the freezer and eating just one… well after the 15th time in the kitchen I have “just one’d” the whole batch~ every time! Especially w those chocolate chips added to it! Resist the urge!!!
