5-Ingredient Chocolate Bite Size Snacks

Chocolate Chip Bite Size Snacks

Fellow working moms understand the grocery struggle by the end of the week.

Usually my husband and I are eating what we like to refer to as “hook me up meals” by Wednesday. Essentially, I’m pulling whatever we have out of the freezer and hoping for the best.

While this may seem like a less than glamorous life for a food blogger, I love the opportunity to get creative while finding something healthy and delicious.

This week’s recipe is brought to you by a surplus of oatmeal and a lack of motivation to go to the store!  Little man couldn’t wait to get his hands on these Chocolate Bite Size Snacks and I think you’ll feel the same about this five ingredient treat.

These Chocolate Chip Bite Size Snacks are the perfect treat for your kiddos (and great for adults, too)! It’s the perfect alternative to cookies or store-purchased granola bars. And the best part is that I always have these ingredients in my pantry, so I can make them whenever hunger strikes. The recipe should yield about 8 bites, but I couldn’t stop eating the batter as I was making them, so I ended up with 6!

  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 cup powdered peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tsp coconut oil, melted
  1. Combine ingredients in a large bowl using a spatula or wooden spoon.
  2. Form bite-size balls with your hands.
  3. Refrigerate for 10 minutes and enjoy.
